The Perks of Being a Bookseller: Part 6

Hello all. It’s that time again. Here is what I acquired this week through the bookstore and through my home.

Harpercollins duplicates. Anything that you want here? I’m building giveaways.
Random books from work. Auntie Mame is a book group title for me. I bought it, so I have to read it. (It’s the third book I actually bought this year.)

Other random books. I can’t wait for The Prey. It’s calling to me.

I’m currently reading my book group title from this month, Delta of Venus by Anais Nin. It’s… ummm.. suggestive, so I cannot read it at work. It puts ideas in my mind that I cannot act upon. *blushes*
So I need another secondary book to read. I started Devil in the White City ages ago, but didn’t get very far in it. I’m partially through The Hunchback of Notre Dame, so maybe I’ll continue that. I also have to finish Philip Pullman’s Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm.
So yeah, no rest for the wicked.
Part of me wants to pick up a YA arc and part of me knows that those are the reason I haven’t finished any of my other books… so maybe this week I will work on those. I can spare a week.
So yeah, that’s this week’s lot. What are you looking forward to? What would you like to see featured in a giveaway?

SO jealous – what an awesome haul this time! XD

I vote NIGHT SCHOOL, PARALLEL, and/or TRANSPARENT. I’m looking forward to all three, but most definitely TRANSPARENT – it’s going to be AWESOME. Even though I haven’t read it, I highly recommend it! 😉

Also wouldn’t mind THE GIRL WHO – I hear they’re really good.

Thanks for sharing! 🙂
