Oh Boy! Look at this loot!

I have been such a good girl. I haven't bought any new books lately. I have been getting my books through contests, PBS and the library.

Until today.

I fell off the book wagon. We needed to go to Kmart today to get some household supplies and my hubby walked me by the books. He knows I can't resist and I have a loving hubby who can't tell me no. I caved. I couldn't step out of my trance as I looked at all the books they had in this week!! I was an obvious book nerd today! People were looking at me strangely as I had armfuls of books to dump into the cart! I was in heaven! Here is what I got:

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (paperback)
The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong (hardcover)
MAX by James Patterson (paperback)
Immortal Sins by Amanda Ashley (paperback)
Dark Curse by Christine Feehan (paperback and my first by her)
Queene of Light by Jennifer Armintrout (paperback)
Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler (paperback)
The Van alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz (hardcover)
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare(paperback, read already but had to have it for my library)
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare (hardcover)
Dark Visions by L.J. Smith(paperback)
Ninth Grade Slays by Heather Brewer(paperback)
Eighth Grade Bites by Heather Brewer(paperback)

Whew! What a haul!! And to top it off, I got 2 more books in the mail! I got High Maintenance in the mail from Rachel over at BookWorm Wannabe that I won in a contest and Cooking Up A Storm by Emma Holly from PaperBack Swap. I am in heaven. Man I wish CSN would contact me again to review another bookshelf!! I need about 4 more!

AND.....last Saturday my mom informed me of a yard sale with a lot of books, so of course I had to go. I got there and found A TON of Harlequin Suspense, Nocturne and Blaze!! They made me a deal! I got like 150 books for $4.00!!!! Can you believe that?!

Yes, I am in heaven. Thank you to my hubby for not complaining about all the books and not saying no! He will be VERY happy tonight! HEEHEE

Until later....

Hi Amy :)
Wow, usually I don't like to go shopping, but I would SO go shopping with you. Excellent books!
Looks like you have hours of enjoyment ahead of you.
Thank you for sharing.
All the best,
PS - Filled out form for contest, but I don't have a blog to do the link stuff.

At least your book madness has a theme...lol I can tell what type of books you really like. I have wanted to read Kelly Armstrong I haven't read her. Sounds like you got a lot of great books! My book funds are big enough for me to take in a haul like that but the 150 books for $4!!!!! Man that would make my day..lol.

Happy reading,
