After a dinner out, I convinced my parents to stop by our local bookstore. As mentioned in my earlier post, I love reading. You can imagine my delight as my family wandered into the store. This was the high point of my day. I'm serious. I've been buying books at this particular store for almost my entire life and I almost never stray from it. Because when I do go into Barnes & Noble or Books-A-Million, I feel guilty. Anyway, I managed to find two novels, which is really not very exceptional. I tend to leave the bookstore with five or six books. My mother never denied us books as children. I am very grateful to her for making sacrifices so we could get them when we were younger. Poor thing, she had no idea she was feeding an obsession. I purchased Rules of the Road by Joan Bauer, which I finished this morning, and Love Starts with Elle by Rachel Hauck. The latter I picked up mostly because of the cover art. I'm a sucker for cool cover art. The former attracted me to it because I really love the author. Joan Bauer has impressed me with most of her books and I am always willing to spend my parents' good money to support a fabulous author. Oh, I grabbed Barron's Pocket Guide to Vocabulary on my way out. I need to start studying for the SAT. My next post will probably be a review of Rules of the Road, but I will really try not to give too much away. It was an awesome read, though. Okay, I need to stop now or I will start reviewing it. Stayed tuned.
