Listen, I was having a really bad day ok?

Photo is a bit blury because I took it with my camera phone.

The five on the bottom are:

Austenland by Shannon Hale
Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
Avalon High by Meg Cabot
Tithe by Holly Black
Rises the Night by Colleen Gleason (Hi Colleen! *waves*)

I've had a rather stressful number of weeks of work and had a bit of a melt down this morning. One really, really nice thing about working from home is that you can have a melt down without anyone seeing! And then you can go take a really long shower and pull yourself back together. And one really nice thing about being back in Montreal is calling Cat and asking if she wants to do lunch. And then you can go eat crappy food court food and go to the dollar store and buy sequined devil horns and then go to the bookstore and blow your budget. :)

So that's what I did. I blame it on whoever shelved Austenland.  It was supposed to be in the adult section. It wasn't. So I decided to check the romance section and it wasn't there but you know, G is right by H so I was reminded that I hadn't picked up Colleen's latest yet. And then Cat and I ended up wandering into the YA section and um...I found 3 books! And then I decided I wanted to look for one of Hale's fantasy books because some of them are shelved in YA and Cat hasn't read them and lookie there it was Austenland. So if Austenland had been shelved in the right place I wouldn't have bought so many books.

Then when I got home my doorman (why do I always say "doorman" when there are like 5 of them because obviously the same person can't work around the clock 7 days a week) had package for me.  The Georgette Heyer's, The Grand Sophy and Venetia, that a coworker sent me as a housewarming gift!

It's been a very bookish day.  Now I just have a wee bit of work to do and I'm going to shut down for the night and READ.
