On Friday night, the husband and I made a stop at our neighborhood bookstore and walked out carrying three new books. Yeah for me! Not so much yeah for the bookshelves already straining under a tremendous weight. Logistics of my bookshelves aside, here’s what I got.
The Likeness by Tana French — I read In The Woods recently and was wowed so of course this one needed to be bought.
A Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss — I read The Name of the Wind earlier this summer and had to buy this one when I saw it on the shelf. Rothfuss is my new fantasy writer crush.
I’ve been on a bit of a book acquiring trend lately and I need to start backing off or clearing the shelves. Since I don’t want to think of either of these things coming to pass, I simply won’t.
I’m hoping to finish up The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley in the next few days. I’ve been reading this book for weeks, six weeks is my best guess, and it’s been an enjoyable re-read but I’m ready for it to be done. I’m also reading The Map of Lost Memories by Kim Fay which is set in Cambodia. It’s a very interesting read so I may spend some time with this book today if I find a few moments of time to steal.
That’s all for me. I managed to schedule some posts so it won’t be so quiet around here this week and maybe now that summer is approaching its end, I may actually get back to blogging regularly.
Enjoy the day in your part of the world today.

I really need to read Tana French one of these days. And yeah, I share your strategy for dealing with too many books – best not to think about it 😛
🙂 Not the best strategy but it works!
I hope you got some time to read and relax today! I need to back off a bit on the book acquiring too, but it’s just so difficult when I know I could have more good books. 🙂
I managed to find a few minutes. 🙂
