Alien - reading

Bookish chat

Our Otakars is now Waterstones and I have no complaints about that as long as they keep it open. It means I can pick up their excellent book magazine without having to trot off to Taunton. AND... they are now doing a loyalty card. Oh Dear Lord.

Picked up a gorgeous edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for the grand-daughter for Christmas.

It's lavishly illustrated by Helen Oxenbury... maybe not to everyone's taste as Alice is a modern little girl, but I absolutely adore it and hope the grand-daughter will be willing to share with her grandma. ;-)

Other books acquired today, two of the werewolf series by Kelly Armstrong, Bitten and Haunted, for Hubby for Christmas, as he likes her books. The Obsevations by Jane Harris, which made up the three for two with the previous two books in Waterstones. And from eBay, The Witches of Karres by James Schmitz.

Currently reading: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. Enjoying this mix of vampires and crime very much. If I finish it before Christmas I'll probably read Christmas Angel by Jo Beverley over the holidays. Sheer unadultered tosh I expect, but Beverley's tosh is superior tosh and I fancy it will suit my mood quite nicely.

I hope those who want books for Christmas, get them. :-)

Oh, boy. Oh, boy. Oh, boy!!!!!! You'll never be at home ;-)
Oh, boy. Oh, boy. Oh, boy!!!!!!

Yes, it's a bit of worry really isn't it? ;-)))
Certainly is :-)
Ooh, I want to read 'The Observations'!

I *know* I'm getting books for Xmas - I ordered them myself ;-) They're sitting in the bottom of my wardrobe, still in their various jiffy bags and Amazon boxes :D

I'd quite like to write a vampire novel :-)
Well, I couldn't find that third book and when I saw The Observations, read the blurb etc., I knew it had been sitting there waiting for *me*. I shall be reading that one fairly soon in 2007.

Er, yes... great minds and all that... I've been busy acquiring my own Christmas books too. *cough*

I would love to write a vampire novel too. Perhaps when RL settles down I should have a go. I'm really hoping 2007 will be a quieter year - a bit less depressing would be nice.
