BOOK BUYS

So a fellow bookish friend and I decided that we might go for tea together (why doesn't that sound as good as going for coffee???) and that we might go to the place that's attached to a major bookstore (you know the one).

Yours truly couldn't help herself and what started with one ended up being four...I kept hearing more and more about this Mortal Instruments series, and saw it, and then the rest followed suit.  Lots of people have been recommending "The Passage" to me (both online and in real life), and well...I'm ashamed I haven't read "The Catcher in the Rye" so it must be done now before more people know my shameful secret.  Holy moly me oh my, I can't wait to dive into these!  First, must finish "The Shadow of the Wind" (which, by the way is going swimmingly). I'll leave you to enjoy this beautiful weather with my fav quote thus far... 


"Man...heats up like a lightbulb: red hot in the twinkling of an eye and cold again in a flash. The female, on the other hand - and this is pure science - heats up like an iron. Slowly, over a low heat, like tasty stew. But then, once she has heated up, there's no stopping her." p.132
