Books I’m Reading

Fangirl

I’m currently starting Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and I’ve snagged All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven as well, both of which I’m really excited to read-everybody’s been talking about them, it’ll be nice to finally sit down and read these books too! There’s a few others on my list, such as a new Jim Butcher fantasy novel that I want to read, but sadly isn’t out yet. =(

Still, I’m currently at the library and debating about what books to get. The sad thing is I’ve read a fair bit from this tiny little library. I would love to be at my sister’s library that’s in St. Louis as it’s three stories high, and has a lot of different stuff there. You can even borrow CDs and listen to music! It’s awesome.

So what else should I work on? Any suggestions? The only stuff I don’t read is Christian fiction and westerns, though I will give it a try if it’s suggested by a friend.

Beautiful Books: Leather and Gold Editions

So I found this website when browsing for leather books (because I need more of those in my life, as they’re very beautiful and my grandmother has more of them than I do!) and while the books are gorgeous, the cheapest one is $39. Yikes! EastonPressBooks

Still, you have to admire how beautiful they are. I’m debating (and budgeting) on getting a few of them, so that I can have them later in life when I’m old and cranky like my grandmother, who I still love to pieces. Leather books have always been a secret (well, perhaps not so secret now) love affair of mine, and they generally have very good stories in them as well.

I’m thinking my first set will be the $110 six set of Dune novels by Frank Herbert. I’ve recently seen the series with John Hurt in it and loved it, and I’ve also read the first novel, but I’ve not gotten to the rest. Dune is excellent, and a classic in its own right, don’t you guys think?

What should I do? Save my money for more important things, or save my money and eventually-eventually!-grow a beautiful book collection?

EDIT: Also, Happy Comic Con day!!!!

Summer Reading

So I found a really cool bookstore called Half-Price books.

HalfPricedBooks

Sadly, it’s about an hour outside of St. Louis where my sister lives, so I can only drop by there when I go visit my sister. (More reasons to drop by St. Louis! Visiting family, seeing the massive libraries, looking at cool buildings, and now a bookstore!)

HPbooks

It’s a very cool bookstore that’s even got record players and records. I still haven’t managed to get a record player, sadly, but I might be looking at getting one as early as Christmas? I don’t know yet, I’m still shopping around for a good one that’s also cheap. Anyways, books!

bookshelves

The last time I went I only got two because it was such short notice. Next time I’m hoping to get more, because I’ll have books to get rid of trade! I’m very hopeful. And I go in a few days to St. Louis again, so YAY! More time at the bookstore! 🙂

But that’s part of why I’ve been gone from my blog is because I haven’t been able to get on, as I’ve been traveling/busy. Just so you lot know.

A New Bookshelf Idea

TARDISShelf1I would very much like to be able to do this for a new bookshelf. I’m wildly in love with the new Doctor Who series. I’ve seen all the way up to season seven, and I didn’t expect to love it as much as I do when I started watching it. I haven’t seen any of the Classic Doctor Who, but I plan on starting to buy all the seasons that I can. But it’s EXPENSIVE, wow, is it so pricey!

Who else is a Doctor Who fan?
