Because reading is hot.

Frank Dicksee: The Confession

Hi Hotties,

What books have you bought recently? I have a confession! I recently just bought A LOT of books. A. Lot. Wolverine and The Kid have both said, “Um, Mummy, we’re getting a lot of boxes from Amazon, and none of them are for us.” Which is not true. Not at all. Now, The Kid and Wolverine aren’t liars, per se, they just aren’t with me when I click ADD TO CART. Also, Wolverine, doesn’t call me Mummy. Just to clarify.

Wolverine recently got  Batman 100 graphic novel something or other as well as The Best American Comics of 2009, edited by Charles Burns, as well as From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweil by E.L. Konigsburg.

The Kid got Arthur’s Underwear, Arthur’s Christmas, and Arthur’s Homework all by the fantastic Marc Brown, in addition to the hilarious I Got Two Dogs by John Lithgow.

Now, before you go crazy and start thinking I am starting my own bookshop (which would be grand) I bought these books on the CHEAP. Used. Practically free. Some of them were $1.00.

In no particular order of when I will read them, some recent purchases include:

The Feast of the Goat: A Novel The Feast of the Goat: A Novel by Mario Vargas Llosa, Edith Grossman

The Gathering (Man Booker Prize) The Gathering (Man Booker Prize) by Anne Enright

So Brave, Young, and Handsome: A Novel So Brave, Young, and Handsome: A Novel by Leif Enger

City of Thieves: A Novel City of Thieves: A Novel by David Benioff

Pirate Latitudes: A Novel Pirate Latitudes: A Novel by Michael Crichton

What have you bought recently?

  1. Besides Guernsey & Dragon Tattoo…I’ve purchased The Picture of Dorian Gray : A Graphic Novel. I haven’t bought a ton of stuff lately, but I do use my Goodreads “To Read” shelf like a shopping cart, so let’s pretend like I bought all the stuff I intend to read!

    I have something like 455 books on my “to-read” list, and I don’t think any of the books I just bought are included.

    Hotties, we need a book/swap/exchange/loan/borrowing policy. Let’s bring some books we might want to swap/loan to the next meeting so I don’t go completely broke!

    I was doing so good, too. For about 2 years I barely bought any books. I just used the library. I blame it on that damned amazon prime!

  3. Oh how I love Amazon Prime!! 🙂 Although lately I have been buying more movies than books. Here are a couple of the books I have bought recently…

    The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon
    Alter of Eden – James Rollins
    Five Greatest Warriors – Matthew Reilly
    ArchEnemy: The Looking Glass Wars – Frank Beddor
    Fragment – Warren Fahy

    Well, these aren’t books, but it’s what I bought recently.

    Vinyl LP Nina Simone-Young, Black, and Gifted
    Vinyl LP River’s Edge Soundtrack -it has Slayer on it!
    Vinyl LP Television’s Marquee Moon
    Vinyl LP Introduction to the Beatles (SCORE! at the Goodwill for 99 cents. It’s a second pressing, worth about $70)– if it was a first pressing, in mint condition, it would be worth $400
