Sheila at Book Journey runs It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Saturday was one of my favourite days of the year - our local book fair, when the local Lions group fund raise for various charities. I am afraid I went and bought about as much as I donated in books for it, so I am now bulging on my TBR shelf.
Books by past favourite authors
Books chosen because I have been introduced to authors by bloggers.
New authors to me, ones I don't really know about.
I picked up the Diane Setterfield one thinking it was
a Diane Chamberlain. Before I noticed a woman
said to me "We read that one in our book club
it was very good". So I kept it for a read.
That's just some of them. I snagged 8 J. D. Robb books, left my list at home, so was very relieved when I arrived home and found I had no double ups. I spent just over $100, more than I intended, but its for a good cause. Books in New Zealand are way more expensive than in the USA for example. I'd pay anything from $20 to $35 for each of these books in the shop for paperback. I bought over 40 books for the $117.
This week I read:
Crime - non fiction
A New Zealand crime - murder of a young girl
by her ex boyfriend.
At present I am reading:
Feels Like Family by Sherryl Woods (part of her Magnolia series)
Still listening to Someone Else's Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson
Reading also a non fiction travel book - for The Eclectic Reading Challenge.
Storybook Travels: From Eloise's New York to Harry Potter's London, Visits to 30 of the Best Loved Landmarks in Children's Literature.
I think it will be Unsuitable by Ainslie Paton. She is self publishing this particular book, but as I really like her writing, I am quite happy to read this. She is another awesome Australian author.
Anyone would think I am Australian at the rate I am reading Australian authors this year, but I am not!
