Reading Journal ... Tuesday, 3/4/08

Reading Strangers in Death, page 126

Been away since last Thursday at the NASCAR race in Vegas. Boy does that ever put one behind the 8-ball. I had so much catching up to do with the blog and Librarything that I've spent most of today not reading like I wanted to.

I'm back with old friends in Strangers in Death. This is one series I can't get enough of. Eve and the gang are so entertaining. Even though I don't read anthologies I've bought the 4 that contain J.D. Robb short stories just so I can get more of my fix of the "In Death" series.

It was like Christmas and my birthday all in one when checking the mail Monday night ~ books, books, books. My Early Reviewers' book, The Forgery of Venus by Michael Gruber arrived so that tops the reading list. I also got my copy of Girlbomb by Janice Erlbaum. This is the prequel to Have You Found Her by the same author that I snagged through Early Reviewers. Random House was nice enough to send copies to those who provided feedback on Have You Found Her. I also received a 2nd copy of Strangers in Death which I've since passed along to another reader.

Stopped by Costco on the way home from Vegas and shopped for books of course. Just can't resist brand new books. I picked up Saving the World & Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson; The Unknown Terrorist by Richard Flanagan; Immortal by Traci L. Slatton; & Patriot Hearts: A Novel by Barbara Hambly.
