Yes, I have been a big slacker...I have not been reading (in addition to blogging)...
Since my move I have been too busy to do any crafty projects. Just unpacking and cleaning - lots of cleaning. Hopefully I get back on track soon.
Since Christmas, or even earlier, I have not even read much. When I visited my family over Thanksgiving, I brought a book up with me. It took me until January of this year to finish it. I've just been too busy to read.
The one book I finished in the first quarter of 2013 was:
That book was like 700 or something pages long. Ugh. But, it was good. I took equally as long to read my next book, so you will have to wait until summer to get the next list.
I found a great used book store: The Bookstall in Brandon, FL.
They will take your used paperbacks and give you store credit for them. They even rent out best seller hardcover books. Downfall is that they do not take hardcovers as used books. In the past, I have brought in books, they look through them, select what they can sell, give me a small percentage of the cover price in store credit and I go down the street and donate the rest of the books to the library. The library has annual book sales and the main branch in downtown Tampa has a bookstore that is open the first Sat of each month. Everyone is happy: I get rid of book-clutter and get credit for more books and the library can sell my donated books.
Back in Mass, there is a used book store: Readmore Books. Old, dusty building with books probably older then me in there, but they would take books for store credit and such. I cold spend hours in there. I am happy to have found better than equivalent to my "Readmore Books" in Brandon.
