Summer Dilemmas

Summer dilemmas (already!)  So not including two summer graduate classes, whatever shall I do for the summer? Read, of course! I have been keeping track of books I'd like to try and that have received positive reviews. Last week I went to Barnes and Noble's website and found all but one of my books at used (but new books) prices. Not too bad - - seven books for around $30! Now I just hope they're as good as all the reviews...I guess I'm a sucker since I also liked the book covers and took that as a good omen for the inside content...Yeah, I know: Never judge a book by its cover. What can I say?  That's how I have been choosing books since I was a little girl wandering up and down the old, musty aisles of our community's library. Since I was an avid reader and would check out 10-12 books at least once a week, I had read most of the books. The new additions would have shiny covers and that's how I found them amongst the older ones!
Anyhow, since money is usually tight over the summer (on a teacher's salary), I'll have to resort to the public library at some point...probably around the second week of July! Maybe the thrift store will have good ones, too? It's times like this that I really wish for a big city library (or libraries!) or at least my dream job: working at a Barnes and Noble bookstore where I would have free coffee and advanced copies of any or all books!
