AKA Showcase Sunday
It was the launch of the Books Are My Bag campaign yesterday so I was peer pressured into buying some books. There wasn’t anywhere round here taking part (I at least had already picked up a bag at LBF) but I bought a couple of books from Waterstones in town and ordered some more via Hive who donate a percentage to indie bookshops. I do think it’s more important to foster a love of books in people instead of being judgemental over where they legally get their books from though. More book love = more potential customers.
The new October Daye finally showed up…I think I’m behind on reviewing this series but I am caught up on reading. Big thanks to Amy for sending me a signed copy of The Oathbreaker’s Shadow for review, really looking forward to it (yeah, yeah, along with about 50 other books *flails*). I read The Secret Life of Bees years ago so am passing this copy onto my book group. Her new one sounds much more my thing as it’s a fictionalised account of a real person who campaigned against slavery in the South.
