Well, I'm exhausted, but happy. Today was hot and Powell's was crowded - I guess the Rose Festival traffic and a beautiful day brought lots of people to buy books. I wanted them to GO OUTSIDE and stop standing in the middle of the aisle jabbering. If you're going to talk, take it elsewhere - where there is space.
I succeeded in taking a whole new path in my purchases. Usually, I have a lot of female authors, lots of books about family issues, relationships, blah blah. This time, I have a couple of mysteries (not genre, but stories), a couple of foodie type stories, 3 books with young girls as the protagonist, a couple of books on other cultures, some morality commentaries and some Americana, mostly written by men. What a strange and interesting turnaround.
Book list to come.
