Went to a buy 3 get 4th free event at Chapters and picked up A Place Beyond Courage by Elizabeth Chadwick and Blood Royal by Vanora Bennett. My hubby and I split the deal so that he got 2 and I got 2, which worked out well as there was not a huge selection of HF at the Chapters we were at!

Oooh, I loved Chapters. That one on Robsen Street in BC. Three stories I think it was? Book heaven.

I enjoy that location when I can get downtown. Duthie's used to have a large store at Granville & Georgia which I loved too, and they were a family-owned chain, with impeccable taste :D
