Wow, wow!
Happy Birthday again. It sure sounds like you had a blast

Michelle G said...


I have Darkly Luminous on the shelf and needed the first one first. LOL So now I have both. I have heard a lot of great things about these books. :)


I agree. Books are the best presents. My family thinks I am the easiest to buy for because you can pick up a B&N gift card just about anywhere. LOL

Have a wonderful day ladies.


Michelle G said...


We did have a blast. :) I just love the bookstore - and we really only get to go a couple of times a year because it's about a 90 minute drive. :)

Great Haul Michelle! ;)

Anitra Lynn McLeod said...

I noticed you are currently reading Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken--I LOVED that book and can't wait for her next one. September seems very, very far away. :(

I've also got about half your booty list in my TBR pile so I'll have to come back and compare notes. :)

Michelle G said...


I love my birthday and Christmas - those are my two big book shopping trips. LOL

Renee Marie,

I can't wait to read the Mead book - I just love Georgina.


You are absolutely right. :) I will take books over jewelry or shoes or bags etc. - any day. :)
I have a wonderful Hubby who knows me very well.




My TBR shelf is over 200 strong - and growing. LOL I don't know how long it will take me to read them all - but I will read them. :) And you are welcome to stop by anytime.

Whoa! You put your birthday GCs to very good use. ;) I see several here that I'm wanting to glom on myself.

Happy Birthday Michelle!
