A slight obsession with books

Reading and Fibrecrafts

I’ve been buying books again.


Quite a lot of books in fact. We went to Sainsbury’s yesterday to get a few bits. Just the making of some BLTs for when we watch the F1. Unfortunately, Sainsbury’s had rather a lot of books at half-price and Stephen left me looking at them for a bit too long while he got the bacon. I had three in my hands by the time he returned.

I’ve been looking at Skios for a while. I liked Spies by the same author so I thought I’d give this one a try. The prisoner of heaven was just waiting to jump into my basket as I loved The shadow of the wind and The Angel’s game. The Jenny Colgan was a no brainer too. I quite like the author and it has chocolate in the title.

And having read the first two in the Heat series, and as I adore the TV series, I had to reserve Heat Rises from the library.

I thought you might like to see a photo of the front cover of Heat Rises.

Four books isn’t too bad and I could easily read those this month so they wouldn’t add to the TBR mountain too much. The problem is that I went a bit mad on Amazon last weekend. I read a book by Dana Stabenow last year and rather enjoyed it. I read it as it was set in Alaska, which I’m still fascinated by, and also as it was a freebie download. One of the Kindle Daily Deals last weekend was another three of her books, in the same series, for 99p each. I can live with that price so I investigated only to find that they were later books. Now I can’t read books out of order so once I’d purchased these, I was left with a dilemma. Should I wait until the others became available at that price, or buy them all now so I could start reading? Sigh. You know me. I now have all of them up to #16.

The good news is that I’ve read #2 already and loved it. So much so that I started #3 without a pause. Just as soon as I finish it though, I’m diving into that library book.

  1. Those others were probably feeling a little lonely I should think – great job!


  2. oh I don’t think that’s such a huge addition – especially if you’ve already read two of them!


Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment - I love to read them.
