Oh my husband and my mom ban me from buying books every year around this time because they begin their Christmas shopping. However, I snuck off on Saturday and bought two books that I know weren't on my shopping lists. :D
There are currently sitting under my car seats awaiting a time when my hubby won't be around. Bad Brenna...

Don't worry, you're not the only one who smuggles books into the house, or has them sent to her workplace ;) :o

I've also had to indulge in book-buying subterfuge from time to time.
In a previous job, the colleague I shared an office with knew me well and would inspect my bags when I came back from lunch. I would initially put my book purchases inside a different bag, but she soon got wise to that!
It was all done in good humour, of course.

Why don't you hop a flight to Seattle and come on over to the dark side?
At home with a good book and the cat...

No, mean would be if I told you what we found just laying around there. Angelique books. Gellis' Roselynde series. HTF Jean Plaidys. Thomas Costain. A whole shelf dedicated to plantation books including the Windhaven series.

All that and free parking too :)

It is way cool. I need to go back, but there's two FOL sales coming up. Speaking of which, one is in Seattle. Can you handle getting part way on a weekend?
