Hi Ruth ... I try to stay out of those pesky bookstores right now .... they cause me much distress .... so much to look at and buy, but no budget for new books right now, lol! If there is a book I can't get through the library and I really want to read it - I send my husband to the store for me - and he is good about just buying the one book. I doubt I would be that good. Can you tell I have book buying issues? LOL

I did take my girls to Barnes & Noble last week to purchase books for them - they earned a reward for their sticker charts and decided they wanted a book ... we had fun selecting books and ended up with Best Friends for Frances for my 5 year old and Max's Chocolate Chicken for my 3 year old (she is a Max & Ruby addict).

I recently bought Dean Koontz's Breathless and a book I'd heard about that looks fun - I Used to Know That. A little book about all sorts of facts and trivia we learned in school (maybe), but probably have forgotten. I got them from Amazon.
