I behaved and stayed away. Actually I was too lazy to go out and too engrossed in a book. Not like I don't have enough to read or anything :rolleyes: ;)

Just bought The Queen's Pleasuretoday on Kobo. Now I have so many books to read, making me feel so much more secure. Can't stand having only a book or two in my TBR pile! ;)
