I'm back

from the beach. It was lovely. Sun, sand, surf, amusement rides, what more can you have perfect on a vacation? I even went garage-sale-ing with my mother-in-law (she loves bargains) and picked up this cute bookbag and a handful of cookbooks. Then out on the seashore I stopped at a local used bookshop (even though I'd brought four books with me!) and bought three new ones.

These are all new to me. Kind of unusual for me; I rarely buy books I haven't read and loved yet. I've always wanted to read Gorillas in the Mist, and Nymeth's review sparked my interest in it again. And Pigeons I've wanted to read since I saw it in a bookstore some while ago. I gave in this time. Fluke was exactly that- picked up on a whim, but it turned out to be fairly entertaining.

I read two books entire, half of Shakespeare Wrote for Money, started The Ra Expeditions, and never opened Quicksilver, even though lugged the heavy thing around. Quickie posts on the books finished coming up!

What a wonderful trip! Glad you're back, though. And I'll be interested in hearing what you thought of Shakespeare Wrote for Money.

Oh you got gorillas in the mist. I have been wanting to read that book too. Hope you like it.

Trish- Unfortunately, I was unable to appreciate it at the time. I stopped halfway through because I didn't want to spoil it for myself- just not in the right frame of mind, I guess.

Violetcrush- I'll tell you all about it!
