I Haz Books!

What's Jack up to? Jack's been a funny one. Honing his skills at owner training. He's getting really good at getting us up and out and doing what he wants. Hanging around the kitchen at the perfect time to con the right individual out of a little morsel of something special. We are failing terribly. All the while he's just as wild as ever. Barking like mad at whoever dares walks by our house let alone darken our door. Oh Jack.

I had quite a few questions as to what books I got from Book Expo o9. Now some of my friends were not the book slut I was and did not get much of any at all. And in all honestly I didn't actively seek out that many books. The moment I walked in a sweet young woman handed me a book on money. I couldn't say no, could I? And of course I was with Katie from Babbling About Books and that woman can get a book. Lucky me.

I guess I was in the right places at the right times. So here's my haul:

DD is in book Heaven too.
Gotta remember to check my horoscope. Wonder if the DH and I are compatible? Kinda late all these years later.

And then the comics. My comic loving neighbor is very happy.

Do you see my Pride and Prejudice and the pretty Wizard of Oz?

Check out this great book. It's already been decided that Jack's somewhere between a Red and a Yellow. We have a lot of work to do. Sigh.

Wow that is some haul! How did you carry it all! WOW! I'm curious about the book Shiver I think it reminds me a bit like the Twilight book except it is solely with warewolves. Lucky girl you really scored.

Will there be a book sale later today?

Marisa O'Neill said...

You're going to have something to read every day this summer!

I also picked up Shiver and I can't wait to start reading it.


Goodness!!! what a haul...I think you are set for the year?! ~XO*

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Hmmmm. Just what was the book expo? I've seen a few posts on it everywhere. Were the books free? cheap? full price?

Oh Jack...We have the same issues on a MUCH. BIGGER. SCALE. (Great Dane) sooo, consider yourself lucky!

The Seeker said...

OMG I love books, and I'm always fighting with time to read a book.


Joyce said...

WOW- I hope you had a rolling cart to haul all of those books, my back already hurts. I love how you even got Jack a book.

You had me laughing how Jack can make you and the family do things. It reminds me of how we tried and tried to train Kelly to ring the bell our other dog at the time we never trained would watch us on the sideline and learned to ring the bell to go out. Kelly taught US to ring the bell when she had to go out!! The life of a terrier- lol... xoxo

Shiver is getting so much good buzz, Frau can't wait to read it but have to wrestle it from DD first.

Patricia no sale sorry but you can borrow anything you like. I know where you live and besides I still have some if your books on my shelf.

Marisa, I'll be reading into the winter!

Yep, Lenore I will.

Linda the books were Freeeeeeee!

Seeker it's so hard to find time. Check out audio books though. Great way to get them in.

Joyce that is the funniest story ever. You crack me up!

Ok, my DH was reading the Marvel 70th cover to cover last night! Can't thank you enough for that little goodie for him. The others are new but he was excited to check them out.

Me...I'm going to need to borrow some of your haul for summer reading!

Deidra said...

So many books, so little time! My goodness!

Oh, you're so lucky with that stash!!! What did you carry everything in??? I see the new Nora Roberts there. Very cool. Have you read that? And which book is your daughter going to select first?

Legallyblondemel said...

Sheryl said...

Diane Gaston said...

Now some of my friends were not the book slut I was and did not get much of any at all.

Rub it in, Kwana.

Kwana said...

N- So glad the Hubby is happy.

Miz write there were nice totes being given out. I got a pretty one from Penguin. I also had my Very Bradley big tote which I checked when it was full.

My DD is reading Breathless first by Jessica Warman

Louisa and Legally the P & P is lovely. It's just the 1st so I have to get the rest. I love it.

Thanks Pamela, Jax and Debra.

Ina I don't know when I'll get to the book but I think Jack is between a red and and orange. High strung to off the wall.

Diane I'm sorry to rub it in.
