My wonderful father-in-law works for Pearson publishing and has the GLORIOUS opportunity to raid the company's staff bookstore on a semi-regular basis. Books that are returned to a bookstore often wind up in the staff bookstore for BARGAIN BASEMENT prices (I'm talking about a buck a book).
When Marc flew back to borrow his Dad's car for the summer (have I mentioned how AMAZING my poppa-in-law is?) I told him that if he didn't bring back some books for me that he'd be coming home to divorce papers. Obviously, I was kidding (maybe) but Marc seemed to get the point because he did a serious raid of their 'already-read' stockpile and brought back two BOXES of books!
They were bursting! BURSTING!
There's mysteries, thrillers, romances, women's fiction and a few historical fictions. I'm just about finished with Jodi Picoult's House Rules and am VERY excited to pick out a new one from the STACKS!
THANK YOU MOMMA & POPPA G!!
