We went to Barnes & Noble this weekend…

I love that my husband enjoys reading just as much as I do.  I really enjoy the fact that he understands when I lose myself in a novel. I also adore the time we spend reading together.

And I -really- love that he doesn’t fuss when I go to Barnes & Noble and spend $50 on books.  Yay!

This Saturday I acquired:

Ok, well, the Christopher Pike books arrived earlier this week.

While looking through the bargain section, I also came across a book by Nevada Barr that I’d recently added to my wish list. The title is Winter Study , and for some reason the synopsis just really tugged at me.  I looked through the copies to find the one with the best and least torn up cover, added it to my ever-growing pile of “I MUST HAVE THIS NOW!” books, and didn’t look at it again.  When we got up to the register, I noticed the shiny gold sticker on the front that says, “signed copy”.  *squeal!*  Yay for that!  Of course it’ll be ages until I get around to reading it, but I’m super thrilled to have a Hardcover, signed copy of the novel…and having only paid $4ish for it makes it even more awesome.

Also, I added several more books to my wishlist:

A Wolf at the Table – Augusten Burroughs
Daughters of the Moon – Lynne Ewing
Faithful – Janet Fox
Dog On It – Spencer Quinn

And the one I’m most excited about, that my husband wants to read as well…

Oh yes.  Very excited about this one.

From Goodreads:

Incarceron — a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology — a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber — chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison — a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device — a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn’s escape is born …

I have a feeling my library list is going to be super long this week.
