OT: Thank you, Hoya. My books are due tomorrow and you just reminded me that I have to renew online.
Another great thing about our library is that I can renew stuff online (or by phone) if I need more time.
(I also just want to say thanks to everyone for all the great reading ideas in these threads. I mostly just lurk in this forum because by the time I get to reading your suggestions, they're old news here.)

The only problem is when I am in Borders and I KNOW I have to have the book. I am not going to be on a waiting list for it.
For me, it's Costco--I don't ever go to bookstores (way too much temptation) but I'm in Costco at least once a week for groceries and I often find a book thrown into my cart
I got some GORGEOUS popup books (works of art!!) for all my nieces & nephews for Christmas too, though

Oh yeah, I watched Tipping the Velvet a couple months ago--very good. Might have to look up those books!
I came back from vacation to get a voicemail that the new Lauren WIllig is waiting for me at the library
I just finished it last night. Are there any other authors similar to her. Light on romance, but still regency? Also, from a later period, I have been running through the Anne Perry Monk and Pitt series of mystery books. Easy and light, plus the extra creep factor of her really being a murderess!

I was a store manager for Borders and Barnes & Noble in a past life. Talk about a dangerous place to work! Most of my paycheck went to my book addiction.
I just saw that Kathleen Woodiwiss has a new book out. If someone reads it, let me know what you think!
I love the library. I get lots of stuff from there and donate alot of books too. The only problem is when I am in Borders and I KNOW I have to have the book. I am not going to be on a waiting list for it. That's my problem.
"Everlasting" was good--I like Kathleen Woodiwiss. My all-time favorite by her is "Shanna". And speaking of pirate books, my second favorite historical romance is "The Pirate and the Pagan" by Virginia Henley. What can I say? I've got a serious jones for pirates. Rowr!
You know, I just realized the main man in both of those books is named Ruark. Strange. Maybe it's the name?
