Book Buying Obsession

I've decided to start recording all the books I've bought in the past month. Some of the book blogs I follow started this (though they do it every week), and I thought it would be interesting to inform the masses just how many books I end up buying every month. So, for March (thus far)...

From the Bookstore-
Sold- by Patricia McCormick
The Truth about Forever- by Sarah Dessen
Honey, Baby, Sweetheart- by Deb Caletti
A Bargain for Francis- by Russell Hoban
Madame Bovary; C'est Moi- the great characters of literature and where they came from- by Andre Bernard
Keturah and Lord Death- by Martine Leavitt
Wintergirls- by Laurie Halse Anderson

From the Provo City Library Booksale-
Dreamland- by Sarah Dessen
Water Shaper- by Laura Williams McCaffrey
Twice Upon a Time series- Sleeping Beauty; the one who took the really long nap- by Wendy Mass
Buried Onions-by Gary Soto
Sparks Fly Upward- by Carol Matas

Soon to be books owned by myself-
Chains- by Laurie Halse Anderson
Fablehaven: Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary- by Brandon Mull

This is a sad addiction that I have and I'm sure I'm going to kick myself later for buying all these, but sometimes you need a good pick me up to your day, and going to a bookstore to buy a book (or getting a package from is an inexpensive way to get some cheap thrills. Lets be honest- I could have more serious addictions that would cost me so much more.

I bought "Keturah and Lord Death" in March too! I think we might be the same person. I just finished reading it last weekend, and on Monday I got a package from amazon containing "Princess Ben", "East", and "The Princess and the Hound", Apparently I'm going through a princess phase. Hooray for books!!
