Treasures finding

Hmmm, I'll start with a post of my finding at the bookfair. You'll be glad to know that I stay UNDER budget (37$)... but that's probably because I only did one tour. Usually, I look at all the books and pick up everything that catches my attention. Then, I do a second tour to see if perhaps i've missed something... and then, a third final one (maybe the volunteers put out new books, you just never know). Then, afterwards, I'll find a corner and start calculating how much everything is going to cost me... The books were cheap, ranging from 1 to 3 $ (even hardcovers!).

Although I found many books, I 'd wished the place was better-lit and I hope that the books were better categorized. I mean, I went into the Romance section and there was what? Perhaps a long table worth of books and most of them Harlequins... Then I went upstairs and found almost all my books in the New books section... you can guess that romance was mixed with fantasy, mystery, classics and so on.


So here is what I got:

New books

Books that I've already read

Naked Heart by Jacqueline Briskin (I haven't read it in English yet and don't have a copy)
Touching Evil and Stealing Shadows by Kay Hooper - I already have both, but my copies are falling apart and those were in good conditions.

So that's my finds... a tiny, tiny bit disappointed that there weren't more of Anne Stuart or Loretta Chase ^^; but hey, it's used books. Not my choice, depends on the donators right? I've hunted down a lot of books this week, but it's not over yet. I think I'm going to go to the UBS tomorrow (couldn't go today as they are closed on Wednesday) and see if I really can't find Anne Stuart or Loretta Chase's books. Aside from that, I'll do a very very quick trip to Indigo/Chapters and get Cold As Ice and No Rest for the Wicked (at least). And then, it should be it for awhile... Well okay, I fess up, I might want to pre-order the next In Death by J.D. Robbs (I think it's coming out in November)... maybe I should pre-order my November books too. See I'm tired of always going into downtown to buy my books... but then, the new Indigo is opening soon (I'm hoping there's some discount for the opening day)... Ah well, we'll see how my book buying turns out to be after this week :)

  1. Oh man, you shoulda went with older Devereaux! I'll be anxious to hear what you thought of the one you picked up. I haven't tried it yet as her latest ones were not as good as her oldies ... just my opinion of course!

  2. I've read Deveraux older works, but I was curious about this one and so I got it... and it was cheap so I don't mind that much :P I'm not really a fan of Deveraux tho, more like curious and I usually end up reading her when I have nothing else.
