I've told myself over and over: no buying new books for myself. Library only, at least until I get a full-time job. Then I deposited my summer paycheck. And my mom decided to use the bathroom in the bookstore. And it was all over.
And the coup de grace:
American Wife I've wanted to read for a long time and snagged at a bargain price. Reading Women I read about at Litlove's blog. It sounded like the type of book that would be a good lead-in to feminist reading for me and it wasn't at the library. I had a strong emotional connection to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, so I couldn't miss this new book about the Sisterhood all grown up, even though I'm not sure how I'll feel about it. And I read Game of Thrones and have been watching the HBO TV series, the 4-book set will be a nice birthday treat.
I recently joined Amazon Associates, so the nice links will take you straight to Amazon if you want to read more about the books or snag a little treat for yourself.
