Exciting Book-Finding Weekend/Hurry up and READ!!! :)

   Hey everyone!
   I have to apologize for not making it on in the past week or so (lots on the go on the personal front!) I decided to check in, see how you are??? and to tell you my exciting book finding deals this weekend! *Yeah*

   First of all, remember my book shelf ramble?? Welllll .... the neighbours across the street had a big moving sale this weekend ;-)  They had a BEAUTIFUL wooden bookshelf with angled corners, over 6 foot tall ... super super nice :D So I watched it. And I watched it. LOL Today it was out on the lawn today again. I watched some more. hahaha (I am now a bookshelf stalker :P) So they started to pack everything up around 2pm and I went over to talk to them. I cut a deal and got the shelf! =) I had my brother and boyfriend carry it back to the apartment... only to find out it was TOO TALL for my room (or the apartment really, I had a feeling it may be too tall :( ) So its now on the living room floor LOL :) Thankfully, my brother is a carpenter and we are going to be able to do something this week to make it fit :D I will have to find a way to post my sad before and my wonderful after bookshelf pics ;-) 

   I was also able to find 6 books to add to my collection! (A few I had on my list of "books-to-find"!!!) 

  • - Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
  • - The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards 
  • - The Color of Water by James McBride
  • - The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kid 
  • - The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  • - A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini 

   As much as I would love to dive into these books, they have to wait, wait, wait as I have 2 books on the go as you know that are advance copies! I am waiting to truly "get into" the one book but I don't want to give it any negatives before benefit of the doubt ;) Some of the BEST books I was hemmmming and hawwwwing at the beginning and then crying or wanting to read it allll over again towards the end LOL Thus the phrase, "Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover". So True in so many ways :D

   Have also been doing a lot of personal writing these days! Hummmm have to work up the nerve to share - it maybe taken in a weird, strange way lol ;)

   So that's my news, Hoping to have a new review up in the next few days and heading off to my lounge chair to read, read, read =)

  Love, Hugs, and Book-Deals =)
