  2. Let's see...what books would I buy? I think I would use it to buy some of the books in my series collections. You know those books you have to have the physical "set". First one would be Kate Daniels Series latest book Magic Rises.

  6. Oh, so exciting! I'd probably use the gift card for Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, The Yonahlassee Riding Camp for Girls, and maybe The Outcasts. I'm going to try to make it to The Southern Festival of Books in October, so I thought it would be a fun project to read what I can from the attending authors.

  39. I use Springpad to keep a list of all the books I want to read/purchase. I am currently up to 529 and add more every day (read too many great blogs like yours).It will take many courses in speed reading to put even a dent in my list and that doesn't count the 200+ books already waiting at home for me to dig into. It would take me awhile to decide how to spend my amazon card but I'm pretty sure The Interestings and &Sons would be included . Love your blog. Keep up the great work. It

Then I would buy Kate Morton's newest book, The Secret Keeper. After that, I'd just peruse and see what catches my fancy.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I don't have a list per se, but I do tend to stick to the "classics," an over-used word if there ever was one. There are simply so many great books from decades/centuries back that I feel compelled to start there. Such titles are also much more likely to be found at a library. Besides, with the Vine Program on Amazon, I get enough newer titles to keep me busy on that front.

    I see many folks have huge collections of books at home. Oddly enough, I don't keep too many books, so whatever I've bought and read, I tend to donate, give away, or stick on the shelf in the teacher's lounge where I work in the hopes that someone else takes them home. Unlike cds or dvds, I rarely enjoy a book more than once. I have read The Age of Innocence twice (unbelievably beautiful) as well as my field manual for life, The Razor's Edge. Beyond that, no matter how much I love a book, I don't hold on to it. It seems a shame to have it collect dust when others could be reading it.

    I tell you one I do want to read is Les Liaisons dangereuses by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. Your Amazon review of it brought me into your lovely online world! :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There are a few books that I'll re-read every couple of years. To Kill a Mockingbird, Alice in Wonderland, The Catcher in the Rye, and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. :) Usually, when I'm done with a book I donate it. Unless it's a classic that I *might* re-read and/or one that my kids might read of course. But usually I send books to my fellow bloggers or I'll donate them to the library. Now and then I'll even leave a stack on a shelf at my local coffee shop :)
