January Book Haul


I believe that I have discussed the it before on this blog but I love Recycled Books in Denton, Texas. Three stories and a maze of shelves. Perfect for the reader that likes to get lost among the books.

Once a year Recycled has their pre-inventory sales. Everything is 20% off; I don’t normally make a point to go to sales but this one is the exception because I always need more books even when I have a giant to read stack. I was good though and only left with five books: two for Keltin, two for me and one to share.

Ketlin and I read very different books. He was primarily looking for specific presidential documentaries but they unfortunately did not have any in stock. However, they did have these two that I was happy to pick up for him.

As you can probably tell from my last post, we are looking at doing a lot more hiking and camping. This book is older but its been reprinted and I figured it would be a good addition to our general collection. Besides, the cover feels cool. It kind of a rubbery cover almost.

Late last year I read Spinning Silver and Uprooted by Naomi Novik. I really enjoyed both of those books. I’ve never read the series that she wrote, honestly I haven’t heard that much about it but since I like what I’ve read by her before and because it has dragons I decided that I’d give it a shot.

Don’t make fun of me for this one. In high school I started reading The Legand of Drizzt and even through out college I read the series. I never played D&D I just really liked the character of Drizzt. I’m pretty sure what I’m saying is that this was a nostalgia purchase. It’s not Drizzt but it is R.A. Salvatore.

What do you think of my books purchases? Have you read any of these? Do you and your partner have wildly different genre preferences? Happy reading.
