The Perks of Being a Bookseller: Part 41

Hello all.

I have a special perks for you today, coming all the way from my cart at work! Ummm… yeah, that’s not exciting at all.

But the books are! Lookie lookie.

 PERKS 41

“What a haul! What a haul!”  – Ranma 1/2

Harpercollins decided to share the bounty this week… and how!

DSCF1909

Also these assorted goodies which showed up in my bin.

(I gave them to the Yukicat altar. She was pleased with the offerings.)

I have been doing terribly reading-wise this week. I have, however, been writing all of the words. So there’s that. I am somewhere around 30,000 words as of this morning. I’m currently editing the last two chapters I wrote before I start-up for the day properly. I’m trying to write as much as I can around work and, you know… having a life. With the holidays looming and many of my friends traveling for home I should have even more time. I am not going anywhere.

I am STILL reading I Capture the Castle. Progress is slow, book is good. This is a bad time for me to read. Yes, yes it is.

Which makes this a terribly short Perks, I know. But I am off to do more. What are you reading this week? What are you most looking forward to?

Ta!

WOW what a haul! Definitely looking forward to The Murder Complex, Wild, Royally Lost, The Eighth Day, Rebel, On the Fence, Fan Art… There are going to be SO many awesome books next year!! I’m currently reading The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett. It reminds me a lot of Hex Hall (Rachel Hawkins), which I loved, so I’m really enjoying it!

Glad to hear your writing is going so well, even if your reading is suffering. Good luck! 🙂
