books a'three

Tonight Rick went out to play Poker. He’s got a huge passion for the game these days. I can’t really complain because…get this…..he win’s 90% of the time and I benefit because he’s a generous guy who shares his winnings with me even though I’m doing nothing to assist his game. Ok…maybe I am…without knowing it directly.

Tonight I had a buy two get one free coupon from Borders and since Borders now has their frequent reader’s card (I got $90 to spend there this year from being a frequent buyer) I decided to go there since Rick gifted me with $50 play money. (real money I can play with any way I wish….Reason #456,897,125,091,001 I pick Rick)

I’ve got to be the only person in the world who rummages through bookstores in agony because I already own 80% of what they’re offering…or I don’t want 80% of the other crap that I don’t own. Sometimes I go to the bookstore, get coffee, look and look for something I want only to come home with nothing but a caffeine buzz. I am supposed to be reading 3 other books for book club but this week I am on vacation and I am breaking all the “I should” rules. I don’t often have a chance to do that in any area of my life.

So tonight I bought these three books

This one because I love this author and because I read through the first 35 pages and was hooked in. Loving it so far…

This one because I love a good or unusual memoir from time to time even if I’m later disappointed to learn that this guy has a blog and you can probably read all of this for free on his blog.

And I bought this one…

I got it just because I was leafing through it and landed on this page.

One of these was free….buy 2 get 1 free…..don’t know which one. I prefer to think of it as a 3 for 2 deal myself.

I also bought a moleskin diary because it was on sale. 50% off. I knew I was going to nab one of these months ago, I knew they’d go on sale. They do every single year. I decided a few months ago to write every morning. I am going to use those fifteen to twenty minutes I arrive early at my desk every morning for myself. I want to jot down my thoughts while I’m awake. I used to do this with my online diary every morning and I found that I was much more in touch with my true feelings when I wrote first thing in the morning with my coffee. I have some colored pens and I want to explore the more creative side of myself. I want to jot and draw and scribble and think freeform on the tangible page again.

I have been surfing the Internet mindlessly, watching FoodTV, drinking bottled water….thinking about the girl I am when I have a chance to be that girl and not just a student. I think I’m going to go curl up with my doggie and Lunar Park….(she’s the best bud to have as a reading buddy…she plunks herself down on my hip and doesn’t move….its like having the warmest security blanket ever!!)
