  1. >First of all, thanks for supporting Borders! Haha. I have to ask people to upgrade to Borders Plus about a zillion times a day and so I LOVE when people already have it. πŸ™‚ Your choices look interesting – I hope you end up liking Between Shades of Grey even though there has been a lot of hype. I'm planning on doing the same thing with Wither – I want to read it, but maybe after everyone else has gotten over it.


  2. >LL, the pleasure is all mine! I love Borders. In fact, thank YOU for working there! I admit, I was kind of mad at them for a few years when Waldenbooks closed… but the BR+ program won me over :o) Also, I love that when I went there yesterday, they gave me a free "Happy Spring" pin at the coffee counter. I was way too excited.


  3. >You definitely got quite a few books this week, though with bargains like the ones you found, I'm not sure I wouldn't have caved in and bought them, too! 400$ sounds like a lot… But I'm not really one to speak, as I have probably spent about 150-200 euros (I'm not sure how much that is in dollars), which is quite a lot of money spent in just three months…I read the review of The Kitchen House and it seems good, so I'm going to try and get my hands on it. I have also been wanting to get Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde for ages, but keep forgetting about it when it actually comes round to ordering. Hope you enjoy it and I would love to hear your thoughts on it!Phanee πŸ™‚


  4. >Love Between Shades of Gray and Dash and Lily's Book of Dares. I also have Shades of Grey on my TBR pile, I need to get to that one. Enjoy your books πŸ™‚
