I've been reading a lot of children's books this year. They're light and portable and short.

Have you read Daniel Handler's (aka Lemony Snicket) non-ASOUE stuff? I didn't care much for Watch Your Mouth, but I adored The Basic Eight. I just got a copy of Adverbs, but I haven't read it yet.
Suzik00kaburra on September 28th, 2007 01:26 am (UTC)
I have not read them, but now I shall troll book-swapping sites until I get a copy. :) Thanks for reminding me to check out his non-Snicketed work.

I actually bought a new copy of THE BASIC EIGHT after reading it at the library! ADVERBS only cost me two BookMooch points, though.

*gasp* Buying a book new? Whoever does such a thing anymore?

I can't remember the last time I bought a brand new book at a brick-n-mortar store. I'm an Amazon.com girl.
Atalanta Pendragonneatalantapendrag on September 28th, 2007 02:05 am (UTC)
Oh, I bought it from Amazon. But new from Amazon.

Every now and then I'll buy a book at BookPeople (a very nice local indie bookstore). But not very often.
Suzik00kaburra on September 28th, 2007 02:08 am (UTC)
All the indie stores around here have been eaten by Barnes & Noble or Borders. About a 1/2 hour's drive there's a used book store but that's awful far to go. You use up the money you save on the gas!
Atalanta Pendragonneatalantapendrag on September 28th, 2007 02:11 am (UTC)
BookMooch has all but eliminated my need for used book stores; better selection and you don't get screwed on trade-in value!

A good place for out-of-print/used type stuff: Alibris.com

It's letting me expand my collection of non-Young-Wizards Diane Duane works.

I went to bookbuyers today at lunch. All I can say is wow! I went to the bookstore next door at is was nice.

I don't know how you are able to read 100 books in less than a year! It's been how long since you've let me borrow one your books?? =P I'm lazy I know, but in truth I think I've read more books after graduation than I did when I was in college!

Now that I think of it, doesn't Bandaid still have my HP 1 book?
kerokerotab on September 28th, 2007 01:53 am (UTC)
this is kero, btw. I thought I was logged in but I guess not
Suzik00kaburra on September 28th, 2007 02:00 am (UTC)
Heh heh, I figured. Who else would be talking about Bookbuyers on a lunch break?

Bandaid still has HP1. You are of course welcome to borrow as many of my books as you like ;) but you're always so busy I have no idea when you'd have a chance to read 'em.

I lurves my children's lit. I read some Napoli last summer (in a Y.A. lit class) and then Zel this year--odd stuff. But good.

And I feel bad that I've read virtually nothing this year, and most of what I have read has been re-reading. Like The Golden Compass in anticipation of the movie.
