Meanwhile, I have to finish reading the Wheel of Time series (currently near the end of book 11), at least up to book 13, in anticipation of book 14's release. Then I have craploads of other books I have yet to read, which are piled up on my bookshelves - books in front of books in front of books! Well, okay, just books in front of books. Hehe. But seriously, I should stop buying more books until I've read all the ones I already own!
But isn't it nice, going into a book store and buying a shiny, sparkly new book? Or two...or three. The problem is, here in Aus books are not cheap. If you could get a book for $15.00, that would be a bargain. Especially if it was new. You can expect to pay $15.00 for second-hand books, and I mean just paperbacks, not even hard covers or large format books or anything. When I was in the U.S., I positively drooled over how cheap books were there in comparison. Aussies get ripped off, and it's not right!!
Anyway...mooooving on, 'cause I'm not bitter. No really, I'm not!
Hope everybody had a fabulous Christmas. Mine involved trying not to die of heat stroke (managed, just!); drinking champagne, and a delicious drink known as a Snow Ball (got to get me some Advocaat!); and eating food. Oh, and swimming in the ocean. That was probably the best part, aside from the Snow Balls.
