Prior to yesterday’s visit to my favorite lovely bookstore. I hadn’t been book shopping in a legitimate place for about 2months — to me that’s a freakishly long time and I don’t know why it’s been that long. Nonetheless I picked up some books, and some nice gossip from my coworkers.
In case you haven’t heard about 50 Shades of Grey, (our main topic of discussion) it’s the erotic twilight fan fiction that gained it’s own (not very unique) cast of characters, that has a major BDSM (look it up I shall not discuss this) theme. Nonetheless the book’s been recognized in the NY Times. Our gossip ranged from the original print price of the book (over $30) to who bought it most recently (a 40 year old man who came in with his young daughter). It seems interesting from what I’ve heard, but I don’t think I’ll be reading it anytime soon. If anyone out there on the interwebs has gotten to it (and you aren’t embarrassed to admit it) let me know how it was!
On to things I did buy!
This is a brilliant sounding dystopian that I heard about a few months ago and never picked up because I’m cheap in real l life. I found a copy of it half off in my store. So add employee discout to that, and I bought it!
This book sounds like What Happened to Lani Garver and i LOVED that book. So I decided to give this one a shot too!
Can I also just mention how friggin pretty the covers of these books are? They’re so simplistic and gorgeous, and I love it!
