What is this pastime you ask? Well, going into a bookstore. Yup, dangerous territory.
I went into Chapters today to get one of the books I need to read for the YA Bloggers Debut Book Battle hosted by Alyssa at The Shady Glade. We have reached the fourth round and I am judging a bracket with Jan from Eating YA Books. We are reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver which has beaten The Iron King, Eyes Like Sisters, and Brightly Woven in the first three rounds. Our second book is a mystery as it will be one of the previous books that lost it's bracket but is being revived for round 4! I am super excited to see which book it will be.
So, to get back to my original story....I went into Chapters to get this one book but of course they were having a buy three, get 1 free sale. (It's like they knew I was coming.) I had a $25 gift card so the damaged wasn't too bad but it was still worse than what I had planned. Here's what I got:
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (obviously)
The White Queen by Philippa Gregory
The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
Looks like I'd better get busy.
