I don't understand how you can read multiple series at a time, I'ld get lost and where would I find the time :confused:

I picked up those Susan Carroll books and can't wait to read them, they have beautiful covers.

Nona, I'm beginning to think you have a book-buying problem. Nobody tell her about Carroll's Bridefinder series. :) :p :o

yes I admit it,I have a problem but it's really my only buy habit really I don't clothes shop unless I have to, I've carried the same purse for two years and it still looks/feels new, and shoes well I'm a size 12 so there isn't much option so whats left besides books. And would you pass up a deal if it presented itself to you?

Nah, I was just teasing. Besides I'm just as bad. A couple of years ago I went to Vancouver BC and the famous Robsen Street (their version of Rodeo Drive). Furs, cigars, chocolate, shoes, anything and everything decadent you can buy and what store do I spend all my time in? Anyone guess???? Chapters! All three stories.
