I love bookstores - and I never have any trouble buying something. Tonight I met my friend Janet at the bookstore (a discount one) where she works. I was a little early so I spent 20 minutes wandering the store.
I bought a trilogy of books by Jo Beverley - I know her, she's in our sister chapter and I haven't read that many of her books so I was happy to do that. I bought Elizabeth Lowell's The Wrong Hostage in hardcover.
And I bought The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore because I loved the title. And the back cover copy:
The town psychiatrist has decided to switch everybody in Pine Cove, California, from their normal antidepressants to placebos, so naturally - well, to be accurate, artificially - business is booming at the local blues bar.
Who could resist that? Not me. Plus I got all the books discounted and then got Janet's additional employee discount. I got 5 novels for $16. I'm so happy I'm going to bed early so I can get started on them.
I'll let you know about the Lust Lizard - I'll probably take it with me to read on the plane to New York on Friday.
