Book Blogger Hop #20: Many Monies for books?

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop, courtesy of Crazy for Books!

Book Blogger Hop

"If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"
Wow, *does some quick math*, that would be Rs. 4000, which is a LOT of books! (or in my case a few hardcover novels).
I'd pick up The Crippled God by Steven Erikson, another copy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, for a friend. My recent read of The Wise Man's Fear (my review is here) would go into this basket too, for a gift or re-read (already I don't think I could carry this presumably infinitely-sized basket!).
What else? I should still have enough for right?
I'd get some Manga - Its been ages since I've read any. Maybe some Patricia Briggs, if there is anything new that I haven't read yet...
This is dangerous (read expensive) territory now and I can't resist the bookstores this weekend!!

Pin It!


  1. Hey Dee, just wanted to thank you again for stopping by at my blog -- if you're anxious to get "Wise Man's Fear," wait till you see my review -- so far, it's shaping up to be great!


  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog and have a great weekend!

  4. Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

    The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

    Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

    Happy Hop Friday!

  5. I've The Girl with Dragon Tattoo in my TBR pile, but it seems to be a very good book!

  6. @darkeva - I Loved the book! I'd like a hardback copy to read, though :)

    @howard - I love checking out what folks are reading too - thats what goodreads lets you do! But it still doesn't beat surreptitious peeking at books.

    @petit - It is, It is!

  7. I still want to read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo...I always hear how good it is but I just haven't got around to reading it yet. It's so good to hear that you're a gamer too - I also like playing RPGs sometimes, mostly FF and I LOVE Kingdom Hearts. Also, I'm following you now!

  9. Thanks for following back Jamie! Looking forward to hearing from you :)

    KK - following back and thanks for stopping by!

  10. Since my grandbaby was born, I tend to spend more time in the children's section.
