I do this to myself every time I travel. I have this fear that I'll run out of books, so I tend to pack more in my carry-on luggage than I'd ever hope to read. Outside of finishing Redemption by Carolyn Davidson (which I did on the plane ride to Michigan a week ago), I haven't finished another book. I am halfway through Sugar Skull by Denise Hamilton, but between my sister's wedding who-ha, Christmas and seeing everybody I promised I'd see - well no reading time!
So what do I do today? Hit my favorite used bookstore in the area, of course! Makes perfect sense! I picked up Girl's Guide to Witchcraft by Mindy Klasky (chick lit paranormal and the heroine is a librarian), The Shadow by Shelley Munro (cat burglar heroine) and The Gunslinger's Bride by Cheryl St. John. You'd think since I like St. John's books so much that I would have had this one already, but I think at the time I was scared off because it's part of Harlequin's long-running Montana Mavericks series. I figured what the hell. Even though I overdosed on romance series about 50 years ago, I like St. John too much to not have a copy.
And because even I'm not immune to series-itis, fangirl-ie-ness - I hit Barnes and Noble today to find a copy of Bride and Doom by Deborah Donnelly. The laydown date was today, and yes - mission accomplished.
Back to California tomorrow.
