Still Plugging Away--Sunday Salon

Here's what I bought at Borders this weekend. They only cost me $7 and change because of my teacher discount and a gift card.

The Best American Erotic Poems edited by Lehman. The ones I've read so far are not dirty at all, just nicely erotic.

Burned by Ellen Hopkins. I read another book by her called Crank and loved it so thought I'd try this one. What I like is that they are written in verse.

Hold Tight by Harlan Coben. This is his newest.

Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. I once took a course on how to write children's literature and she was my teacher. I've read a couple others by her and really liked them.

One False Move by Harlan Coben. Yes, another Coben book! I should have read this one before the one I'm reading now because they are a series. Oh, well.

I'm a day late because we went out of town this weekend and didn't get back until 7:30 last night.

I did get to read The Final Detail for a little while since I always take a book with me. When we stopped for gas, I read. When my husband was at a motorcycle swap, I went to Borders then read. I wish I could read in a moving vehicle, though, and am so envious of anyone who can!

Looks like you have some good reading ahead of you. I haven been seeing Burned by Ellen Hopkins pop up now and then. I will have to check her out further and give her a try.

I hope you have a great week.
