Hauling Sunday XCV

Okay, so I think I might be sick LOL. I was looking back at the past few Hauling Sunday posts and have realized I haven't been to the bookstore in a month. The last time I went was actually for the book signing and actually didn't buy anything!! And I'm starting to feel the itch LOL. Hopefully, they have a promotion soon! Also, there was the McGill bookfair this year - last year was supposed to be the last, but they found new volunteers to carry it on, so yay! - and I didn't go. A lot of it had to do with schedule, but at the end of the day, I elected not to go because... well most of the books that I want, I already own ^_^; I'd basically just be buying books to buy books and they'd probably end up in the TBR pile. Yes, I'm getting wise... or as I said, I might be a wee sick ^_^; Seriously, few years ago, there was no way I'd miss it LOL... and I just hope there was nobody this year that decided to donate his/her entire collection of romance books to the bookfair :P

Anyway, so the past week was another quiet one with only one book... Actually, an e-novella. However, it was a good one!


Turning Up the Heat by Laura Florand - I received Ms Florand's newsletter earlier this week and learned she self-published a novella. Being a big fan, I of course bought it :) Seriously, well worth the price! And even if it was by Ms Florand, I'd have been interested because of the premises... The hero's a chef who is so stressed that he can't eat because his wife has left on a South Pacific vacation without a word. Intriguing, right? :)

So that's it for this week. But definitively more to come as I'm expecting a few books in the mail :) Yay! What about you? What are your new precious? Did you go to the bookstore to buy them?

  1. Nath, I think we are both sick then! I haven't been buying too many books either. I think there aren't many books that I want at the moment and am waiting for November releases. :)

    I'm basically reading from my TBR at the moment... I have so many great book in there! But I did buy one by Gaelen Foley this last week and read it. It was a good read...

  3. Hilcia - LOL. Or I'm getting way too attached to my e-reader! At least, you've been going through your TBR pile, Hils. I look at mine and I can't find anything that calls to me ^_^; I just hope really hard that Chapters is going to have a promo soon. After all, holidays are coming!

    Ames - I know!! Me neither!! Or perhaps I did stop by at one point, but did not buy anything.
