Any book blogger knows a lot of the books we receive for review are provided to us free in exchange for fair reviews. That’s all well and good. BUT . . .
Every now and then a bookaholic likes to shop for books. That can get expensive, but purchasing books supports starving writers and book shop owners. I prefer shopping Indie book sellers and, not unexpectedly, their prices run a bit higher.
Recently I had the good fortune to win — yes, I said WIN — a lovely gift certificate from Sandra Brannan, author of the Liv Bergen Mystery Series. It was a simple enough contest I ran across on Sandra’s Facebook Page — simply leave a comment naming your favorite Indy bookstore for a chance to win. That’s all I did — and I won!
Here are images of the books I spent my gift certificate for at Annie Bloom’s:
and one other they were out of, but graciously ordered for me:
Reaching is a memoir written by my online friend, Grace Peterson of Subplots by Grace.
I could certainly get into buying this many books at one haul, but with all the “Book of the Day” books I receive (more about this in a later post), I don’t know when I’ll get my book written for spending time reading such delicious and delectable writings from others.
Have you made a book haul lately and, if so, what did you pick up or bring home from the library? We’re dying (not exactly) to know!
