more good reads

 I went to Goodwill today, once again on a quest for some examples of a current trend,  the Romance novel, but, you know, the kind with half nekkid centurions on the cover? I'm doing some research.  

My Amazon wish list will probably get me locked up and rather than spend big bucks I thought I'd find these books used.

Yeah, yeah, and your boyfriend/husband buys Playboy for the articles. heh heh heh.

Well, APPARENTLY, Goodwill, the Salvation Army and several other resellers pitch the bosom heavers right in the trash as they arrive OR the intake employees scarf them up and take them home. There were no sweaty six packs to be found  anywhere.

I brought these home instead, more to my taste and the Reliable Wife had me hooked deep in the first four pages.. Somewhere, someone (good I hope) is writing the screen play.

Our library has an annual booksale with over 70,000 books each and every year. And they throw away all the romances with sexy covers. It's something I don't understand.

I read "Away" a number of years ago, and really enjoyed it. :)

We have a used book store here with all genres, but thanks to Connie Rose I go directly to the mystery section and snatch up all the Michael Connelly series I can afford... can't get enough of Harry Bosch!
