Hazy is swamped with work, so she hasn’t been able to post much lately. And as her trusty ninja cat, I, Weatherly, took the liberty of posting something new here (sweet of me, isn’t it?).
I realize it’s been months since my last mission report for book acquisitions. So, here you go.
These were acquired in November and December:
- And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
- The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo
- One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
- Black and Blue by Ian Rankin
- The Best Short Stories of Mark Twain
- The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain
- Hour Game
- Simple Genius
- First Family
- The Sixth Man
Other than the Mark Twain ones, all of these were found at a bookshop that sells pre-owned/used books. So, they’re significantly cheaper, yet they still looked alright! Hazy made me find The Innocents Abroad as it was highly recommended by a punchy Professor friend of ours.
Hazy also got some lovely Christmas presents:
- Harry Potter Film Wizardry
- Pirates of the Caribbean (The Complete Collection)
- Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire
- Wicked by Gregory Maguire
- The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
After reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, I remember Hazy telling me she isn’t fond of Gregory Maguire’s writing style, but she’ll probably
be kinda forced to read two more of his books now. 😆
I believe she’s also read The Hound of the Baskervilles before. But if she feels like re-reading it, at least she won’t do so from the thick complete collection Sherlock Holmes book. This is much more portable, no?
Hazy informed me that she won’t be sending me on any more missions to acquire books for at least six months because she is running out of bookshelves, but we’ll see. I’ll give it a couple of months. 😉
This is Weatherly, signing out.
