I'm So Weak

I'm pathetic. I can not go into a store that sells books without buying one or two or three...

Yesterday, I ran into the supermarket to pick up a couple of things and came out with three books. Now, I know I've got over a dozen books coming in the mail within the next week or so. Why did I buy these books? I'm weak.

And what makes this even more pathetic 2 books are part of series that I'm only slightly interested in continuing reading. I certainly could have waited to get these books used.

But, one of the books I picked up was Victoria Bylin's Abbie's Outlaw. I finished it last night and really enjoyed it. I read very few western romances. It's been years since I've read them on a consistent basis. There was a period of time that every hero in a western was a Confederate ex-patriot, with lots of baggage. I've always had a hard time with these heros, but I'm saving all of this for a blog about being a PC romance reader.

No more time, Junior has school this morning.

Have a great day, happy reading.

Oh I liked Abbie's Outlaw, of course I like westerns.

LOL- welcome to my world! I nearly always come out of the grocery store with at least one book.

Sybil--I'm really breaking out of my reading rut, so I'm reading a little bit of everything and finding I enjoy more this way.

Amanda--I've been doing this for years. We have one small supermarket, not part or a chain that alway has a good book department--I avoid this place like the plague, but Monday I was in a hurry and of course spent an extra $15 dollars on books I didn't really need.

If you are weak, so am I -- so lean on me. HA! We'd both fall over!

You aren't weak, Tara Marie. You're an avid, enthusiastic consumer. :-)
