My friend Cindy hosts this meme of books bought during the past week.
I bought two books last week at a local used bookstore. I know what you're thinking...why would she buy books at a used bookstore when she's already got her own store where she can pick and choose to her heart's desire?? Well, the answer is simple: I didn't have these particular books and I wanted them. So there!
The first book is Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson. It's a book I borrowed from a friend and I've been reading it very slowwwly over the past couple of weeks. It's not that the book isn't good, but along with being ridiculously busy I'm also reading three books at the same time. Now that I've bought my own used copy I can return my friend's book and not worry I'll forget or it'll get lost somehow.
The second book is The Revenge of Captain Paine by Andrew Pepper. I have the first book in this historical mystery thriller series and was looking out for the second. (Can you tell I'm genre-challenged??).
