I couldn´t help it



I have been really good for two months, but the pictures speak for themselves, don´t they?

I ventured into AwesomeBooks and they held me hostage until I had paid ransom! Or something.

Sometimes we just *have* to buy a ton of books, don't we? :) Ha! I had an order like this a few months ago. Enjoy!

Margot Kinberg sagde ...

Dorte - Now, really. What choice did you even have? You were being held captive! ;-). Enjoy all those wonderful books, and I look forward to your reviews.

Care sagde ...

LOL! i can't enter any bookstore and leave empty-handed. it is so easy to justify a book purchase.

Clarissa Draper sagde ...

I am so jealous!

Barbara sagde ...

Well, after all summer is coming, isn't it? You can't let yourself get caught without something good to read.

Dorte, I went to school with Simon Brett so I am glad to see you are buying his books. We did not know each other at school but I met him at Crime Fest 2009, and at Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival.
This bulk purchase will slow up your writing. ;o)

Kerrie: I´d better try one of his books soon then.

Elizabeth: thank you. Once you have seen them...

Margot: I am glad my friends understand the difficult situation I was in.

Care: and the problem is there is only ME holding me back. My husband says he spends more money on books than I do so he doesn´t even try to stop me ;)

Clarissa: well, they cost less than £ 18 in total, including shipping (and that is the problem; these days I can buy loads of books without having to rob a bank).

Norman: no, you are totally wrong there. I never read when I should be writing - that is when I blog, lurk in friendfeed and come up with superfluous facebook statements. ;)

Dreadful news. If you need a bunch of amateur sleuths to figure out who was behind this crime, your readers will gladly get to work. I'll start by visiting my local bookstore just to make sure the criminals aren't here, too.

Dorte H sagde ...

Karen: if this wasn´t such a serious situation, I am afraid I would laugh out loud :D

Cathryn Grant sagde ...

I know the feeling. And with Kindle it's getting even more difficult to manage my longing for a book I "might not find again" (often my excuse).

Kelly sagde ...

You're not the only guilty party. I spent far too much time in the Kindle store yesterday. The evidence is much easier to hide!
;)

Dorte H sagde ...

Cathryn: oh, but Kindle books don´t count - you can´t actually SEE them ;)

Kelly: yes, that´s what I mean. My family can´t laugh at me because my Kindle books fall out of the shelf ;)

Mo Hayder's Gone is a great book, but I didn't enjoy Jane Casey's The Burning so much. I haven't read the other books, but I hope you enjoy them :)

Dorte H sagde ...

Hi Nikki-Ann.

Nice to meet you. All of these books have been recommended to me by other bloggers so I expect to enjoy most of them. I am sorry you didn´t like The Burning more. I think I will, though. I have already read the first chapters and can hardly wait to get on with it.

Beth F sagde ...

Wow!!! You bought just a few, I see. I think the Brett Fethering mysteries are good, but I like cozies.

Dorte H sagde ...

Beth: yes, those Simon Brett books look tempting. A cosy mystery is really nice when you have read a couple of fast-paced thrillers.
