Thank you to everyone who sent their Thanksgiving wishes to me - book bloggers really are the nicest group of people!
Classic moment of the trip: when explaining to family about my blog, my young cousin says, "Aunt Amy....you do book reports...for fun?" My "cool" aunt status has thus been revoked.
On to book news...we've driven down to Florida a few times since moving to Atlanta and each time we pass through Valdosta we see billboards for "$3 Book Sale, 250+ titles", but we haven't stopped there until this time. It didn't turn out to be quite as glorious as they made it sound, mostly had religious books, which isn't my thing, but if it's your thing then you'd be in heaven (sorry, bad pun...come on people it's a joke). I did manage to scrounge up the following:
Baudolino by Umberto Eco
The Traitor's Tale by Margaret Frazier (Amazon has wrong cover attached to this one)
Silent In The Grace by Deanna Raybourn
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
The Prince and The Pilgrim by Mary Stewart
The Observations by Jane Harris
I finished The Conqueror by Georgette Heyer on the trip and will be posting the review shortly. Here's a one word version for you now...fantastic! Next on my list is A Lady of Quality, another Heyer...this one looks promising...the first page already gives a giggle. I just love her.
