What does it say about me that I love the idea of these Bittersweets?
AngieW’s post about car shopping reminds me of my last shopping experience. After I’d done my research (maintenance, warranties, customer satisfaction, pricing) and decided what I was buying, the first question out of the salesman’s mouth was, What’s your favorite color, honey? Uh, not a relevant consideration, thanks. No commission for you.
Thirteen e-books waiting to be purchased or read:
1. The Eternal Rose by Gail Dayton. End of her fantasy trilogy. But I’m not buying it until I’ve read the second book.
2. I Want Candy by Kim Welter Wong. I liked her chick lit and want to try this, which seems to be YA.
3. Margarita by Joan Wolf. A Venezuelan heroine in a British regency-set novel sounds intriguing.
4. Woman of Valor: Margaret Sanger and the Birth Control Movement in America by Ellen Chesler
5. The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How People Turn Evil by Philip Zimbardo. I saw him on TDS or TCR last year and this book has been sitting in my cart ever since.
6. The Middle Sea: A History of the Mediterranean by John Julius Norwich.
7. Original Zinn: Conversation on History and Politics by Howard Zinn and David Barsamian
8. Working for the Devil by Lilith Saintcrow. I’m pretty sure that I have a hard copy of this somewhere in my house, but I broke down and bought an e-copy. As soon as I finish reading the e-version, the paper copy will appear.
9. Schrodinger’s Ball by Adam Felber.
10. Threads of Malice by Tamara Siler Jones
11. Dragon Bones by Patricia Briggs. Because I love her Mercy Thompson series.
12. The Splendor of Silence by Indu Sundaresan
13. Middlemarch by George Eliot
There’s some linking and verbiage that is supposed to be attached but I’m too lazy. (c) to the Thursday Thirteen people.
