Yes, I'm still not reading. So what do I do? Go out and get more books of course! It's really not my fault. Truly. It's all the fault of those evil landlords for jacking up rent and making the area's largest used bookstore go out of business.
I've already hit the store once since they announced they were closing (incidentally, with Rosie), but at that time I was smart and left my Harlequin shopping list at home. See, I always get in trouble when I take my Harlequin list to the UBS because they have an obscene amount of series titles. Well this time I brought my list with me. In my defense I think the heat we've been experiencing in southern California finally cooked the brain cells I didn't kill off with alcohol in college (for the record, it was a balmy 109 degrees where I live today).
I walked out of there with 22 books. Imagine how deadly it would have been if I had found any of the Harlequin Historical titles I was looking for. Don't ask me when I'll read them or why I think I need more books - but there they are, sitting on the sofa in our home office. Seriously, it must have been the heat. That, and the fact that they were 50% off.
I really have an unhealthy addiction to the Harlequin SuperRomance line. I might want to get help for that. But every series reader should have at least one line they adore above all reason - and I figure better HSR than ::shudder:: Harlequin Presents.
(I'm kidding. Honestly, kidding! I can joke about the HP line because I love me Harlequin oh so much. And better I make fun of The Greek Billionaire's Secret Virgin Mistress than some ass-hat who thinks every romance published is a "Harlequin bodice ripper")
In other news, A Certain Awesome Harlequin Historical Author sent me a copy of A Western Winter Wonderland by Cheryl St. John, Jenna Kernan and Pam Crooks - which arrived this weekend. My favorite part was looking at the package, which was addressed to My Name, Super Librarian. I showed The Boyfriend who got a bit of an incredulous look on his face. To which I said, "See, people have heard of my great power! Well at least as far as Nebraska."
Today Nebraska, tomorrow the world!
Now I really need to think about getting some reading done.
