Library Visit

So, today Rosefire and I went to our local library. We met a lady who was shocked at the number of books we were getting. She kept saying, “Are you going to read all those?” and “Are you going to leave some?” She ended up taking one of the books Rosefire was looking at. Not that we minded, but we were a little shocked that she kept coming back to us and checking out our books. We offered to let her search through our books to see whether she wanted any of them for herself, but “No,” she said, “they’re yours. I couldn’t.” Didn’t stop her from taking Rosefire’s book though. 🙂

Do any of you get strange looks at bookstores or in the library when you check out books? I don’t usually, but people are shocked when they see how many books I have on my bookshelves. For a woman who doesn’t get out much I surprise myself with the number of books that I have.

Anyway, here’s a partial list of books that we got at the library:

Deadly Pleasure by Brenda Joyce
Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan
The Sophisticated Cat by Joyce Carol Oates and Daniel Halpern
The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey
Lord Foul’s Bane by Stephen R. Donaldson
Just One Touch by Debra Mullins
A Time of Omens by Katharine Kerr
Wolfskin by Juliet Marillier
The Eternal Highlander by Hannah Howell and Lynsay Sands
Enchanting the Lady by Kathryne Kennedy
The One Tree by Stephen R. Donaldson
Winter Heart by Robert Jordan
The Bargain by Julia Templeton
West Wind by Linda Winstead
Days of Blood and Fire by Katharine Kerr
Reynold de Burgh: The Dark Knight by Deborah Simmons

Sunday Post

So, another Sunday has come. How are you all? Anyway, I am fine, thank you. We are wrapping up books to go on Bookmooch today. I’m currently reading Heart of Stone by Jill Marie Landis. I’m on chapter 4; loving it so far. Rosefire is reading Colony by Anne Rivers Siddons – I grabbed it for her at a library book sale because she loves Anne Rivers Siddons. Didn’t realize it was 625 pages. Rosefire can’t handle long books usually, but she’s loving Colony so far! Yay for me!

I would like to thank everyone for visiting my little blog this week. I love hearing from you all. See you next week, everyone!

Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

When did I read it? January 23, 2010 to March 18, 2010

Where did it come from? Barnes and Noble Bookstore
Genre: fantasy, romance
Year Published: 2000
Where did it go? My bookshelf
Lovely Sorcha was the seventh child and only daughter of Lord Colum of Sevenwaters. She and her brothers loved to run through the forest free and wild. Until their father married again; an Irish sorceress bent on destroying them all. Lady Oonagh started to slowly divide the family from each other until, in desperation, Sorcha’s brothers take their sister into the forest to protect her. Lady Oonagh catches them and weaves an enchantment that the brothers can’t escape.

Their very lives are in Sorcha’s hands, but she is forced to stay silent on the orders of The Lady of the Forest who sets a task for her – spin six shirts from starwort and put them over her brothers heads herself to set them free. Sorcha is kidnapped by enemies of Sevenwaters and brought across the sea. She despairs of ever finishing her task, but the love of her brothers and the love that comes once in a lifetime sustains her. I give this story five hearts.

Sunday Post

Hi everybody! Another Sunday is here and boy do I have things to tell you. First of all, I’m on my old dinosaur of a computer because my laptop crashed and left me bereft of Internet access for two days so far. The computer technician is on his way out to fix it on Tuesday, so here’s hoping. As you all know, St. Patrick’s Day is on Wednesday and I celebrated by being in two parades yesterday. I brought Daughter of the Forest with me but didn’t get much reading done. I’m on page 274 though so not to worry. 🙂

Today was our eighteenth anniversary at the radio show. It was the Sunday before St. Patrick’s Day in 1992 that my parents started the show and my dad had laryngitis and wasn’t sure he could go on. Someone was doing the show for him and right at the beginning of the show, he gets a phone call saying, “Help! I only have one CD to last three hours!” Dad dragged himself out of bed and took off for the station. He saved the day!

Well, Rosefire is reading Nothing But the Best by Diane Masters. I don’t know how it is, but hopefully she likes it. Thanks to everyone who left a comment this week.
