Adrasteius: Really?  Really.

(no subject)

I went out with sandy_mithra the other day and dropped too much money on books, again. sigh. I also pre-ordered the HP book, but then realized much later that I won't be able to get it OR go to any opening parties because on July 20th I have to drive 10 hours in a car with my family to go to a wedding for someone I don't know very well and care very little about (but it's important to mom, so). blaagh.

Anyway, yesterday and today I read The Lovely Bones, a book I'd been meaning to read for probably over a year now. The hardback edition was at the front of the store for a discounted price (six dollar, not too shabby), so I decided not to miss my chance even though I had already told myself to stop adding things to my pile.

I also bought Holly Black's two books, Tithe and Valiant, so I could judge for myself whether they were overwritten tripe or actually worth the paper they're written on, and I looked around for Cass Clare's City of Bones, but I couldn't find it. I am 99 pct sure that one is overwritten tripe, though :|
