Book Blogger Hop - 3/11 - 3/14

Book Blogger Hop The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.  This week's Hop question is:

 "If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"

I have a really weird habit when it comes to book related gifts, especially gift cards.  I don't read the books or use the gift cards right away.  I like to savor the anticipation of gifted books.  And I like the idea of being able to buy new books over the course of a period of time, rather than all at once.

So, if I were given $80 to spend on books today - I would buy Haunting Jasmine by Anjali Banerjee.  I'd also pre-order the new Sarah Addison Allen and then I'd put the rest of onto a gift card in order to spread the book buying happiness out over time.


  1. Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

    The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

    Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

    Happy Hop Friday!
