The Hazards of Working at a Bookstore Vol. 3.0

The Hazards of Working at a Bookstore Vol. 3.0

I see all the Waiting on Wednesday posts of the people I follow and realize that at some point I need to get back to doing that one. Not sure what I’m waiting on though, that I haven’t already talked about at some time in the past. Maybe next week I can come up with… Read more »

The Hazards of Working at a Bookstore Vol. 2.9

Only two books this time. Even though I’ve worked 2 different times since my last post, the 2nd time I worked I was at the cash register the whole time, so only saw what other customers brought up, and nothing new was brought up. Okay, here are the two I saw that I think I’d… Read more »

The Hazards of Working at a Bookstore Vol. 2.8

It feels like forever since I’ve blogged! But it’s really only been 2 days. Silly me. Part of the reason is that I started re-reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to get ready for the movie, and so I haven’t finished any new books to blog about in a few days. Plus, the egalley… Read more »

The Poisoned House by Michael Ford

Yet another egalley from Netgalley. This book is supposed to be published in September, so I’m getting to preview it a bit early. I do enjoy a good historical fiction, and this one did not disappoint. At first my brain kept wanting to think of the main character, Abigail Tamper, as if she was a… Read more »
