What's so great about it?
The Borders near the local mall was going out of business. Sad, when no one wants books anymore. Everything was 25-50% off. Being the penny-pinching family we are, my family went to buy some books.
It was really fun. I will never stop loving books EVER.
I finally got Eldest! Eragon was given to me by Sunshine; thanks! For now, all I need is Brisingr, but it's not in paperback yet (At least, I don't think so. They didn't have it/ they were sold out by the time I got there.). I'm so happy~
Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors. I'm elated out of my mind to finally have my own copies of his children's books. George's Marvellous Medicine was one of my favorites of his, but my library doesn't carry an available copy... ever. BUT NOW I CAN READ IT WHENEVER I WANT! :D
I know it's the second volume, but still. The stories I'd read so far had no mention of Professor Moriarty and Irene Adler was already married by then. I'm excited to start!
My older sister said this was fantastic, as was Ender's Game, which we also purchased. I really want to read them. I looked for Dr. Seuss books. They weren't there. D:
By the way, The Host is Stephenie Meyer's best book. It's really deep and touching and well thought-out, even for cynics. I'd absolutely recommend it. It's not all that sci-fi either. It's just the overall idea that's sci-fi, not what makes up most of the book. Definitely not mainstream sci-fi. It makes me cry every time I read it. Well, it doesn't make me cry, per se. It makes tears well up, but the tears don't fall. I don't think I've ever cried for anything I've watched or read. It's not really that I don't feel what the author or producer wants me to feel, it's just that I guess I don't feel it deeply enough.
GO. BUY. BOOKS. Electronics are the birth of ingenious ways of communication, but they're also the death of so many wonderful things we take for granted, like these tomes of enjoyment and wisdom, in some cases.
(Would a love of books be called bibliophilia?)
