Joy of Books

JoyofBooksAs a full-time neo-pro writer, I live by the frugalista credo, which essentially states DON’T SPEND ANY MONEY.  That said, my idea of a shopping spree is a trip to the grocery store to buy detergent.  So imagine my delight when one of my beloved sisters sent me a gift card to Powell’s Books, one of my favorite indie books stores.

To better savor the gift of retail therapy, I held off using the card until after the holiday and post-holiday crowds had thinned.  Today, after finishing my daily writing quota of new words, I spent a blissful hour prowling the aisles, ultimately deciding on one from each of my favorite genres: adventure, horror, science fiction, and urban fantasy.
