I may be in trouble.
I found a great used bookstore called The Iliad (it used to be next to a video store called The Odyssey). My friend Jenny and I went there the other night. They have a cat that only has one eye (she looks like a pirate), and TONS of books. We only spent an hour there, yet I managed to find 5 books I needed to buy.
Then, when I got home, I had two more books waiting for me that I’d ordered from Amazon.
In my defense, one of the books I bought is for my dad’s birthday. 🙂
But the other six? Yep, they’re for me.
The books I bought are:
by David McCullough
by Stephen King
Now I just need some time off from work and all my other responsibilities so I can read them!
UGH…not Lord of the Flies. That book literally made me ill. I refuse to teach it. It’s the ONLY work of literature that I legitimately HATE.
Enjoy reading all the rest of the books, though….
I LOVE Lord of the Flies. I must confess, I’ve never read it though. I have, however, listened to William Golding himself read it. AMAZING. Guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this one. After all, I’ve kept my opinions about the Harry Potter books on the DL… 🙂
