I have to get something off my chest... I hate computer viruses!!!!! They suck!!!!
When I tried to access blog from my work computer Tuesday, it told me that I had infected my computer with a virus and it shut blog down. Well, low and behold... my computer was infected. The computer guy had to do some of his magic on my computer. So now, I am only allowed to do bloggin when I get home in the evenings... which is a pain in the butt because hubby normally has his grubby fingers on it!!!
So, with that being said.... I want you all to know that I will try my hardest to access it at work to check on all of you to make sure that everyone is playing nicely!!!! Barbara... Vamp... Rehv.... Nice not naughty, no daggers, no kung-fu crap... nice!! Okay...just a little fighting because he is yummy **not that I would know*** (((i am still under the bed with my Lords of the Underworld ~ hiding from Barbara for having VampGirl's back)))!
Now... let's see what's going on lately...
I went to Wal-Mart this past Sunday and I bought Edge of Danger by Rhyannon Byrd, Love Awakened by none other JR Ward, and Forbidden Nights with a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks!! Now I am on the search for the rest of the BDB books... I will have them sooon.. very soooon ***rubs my grubby hands together with a haughting laughter***** Then I would love to make it to Borders (they have a 20% off coupon)... so I can buy it then... it is payday this Friday!!
Right now: I am reading Jacob by Jacquelyn Frank... Thus far, it is proving to be a satisfying (hellva man) series. But after this one... I might have to stop and do the ""No-No""" of my most hated pet peeve... break the series up and read something else... because if I get my hands on the BDB books.. you better believe I will be reading those next instead. Also... I am waiting (very patiencely) for my copy of Passion Unleashed by Larissa Ione that I won from April 5th (but I am still trying to get my hands on the first two before I jump into that one). My collections are not quite complete yet.
Do you.... ever have that feeling when you see a book on the shelf... you think, I should buy it now... but you walk away from it... not because you do not want it now... but because you know you have 3 books in your hand already... so you leave.... and you leave the book behind... then you go there the following week... only to find it GONE!!!!! I mean, come on... no one else should be looking to buy the same damn book I want. That is what has happened to me two weekends ago at Wal-Mart. It wa Larissa Ione's Pleasures Unbound. It was there one Sunday... then I went back the next damn Sunday and it was GONE!!!! I think I must have screamed a little because Brooke (my baby girl) looked at me like I had lost my mind!!!! She did not realize the trauma I was going through. I searched behind every damn book on those shelves and nothing. I vowed I am never doing that again!
I buy a good amount of my books from there because they are closer to me. It is a half an hour away... my local Borders is an hour away (with good traffic)... And I hate to say this... but Wal-Mart is my Sunday grocery shopping store! So I am there anyway... and while I am there.... I can stop by the book section and no one is the wiser!!! Expect Brooke ***who gives me the mean eyes as we called them when she was little girl*** I just want to make sure that it is understood that I am not trying to promote WM or anything; it just happens to be closer. Besides (saving money tip, at least for my area) they are the only store that will match sales papers. So saving money to me means.... I can "treat" myself to some books!!! Isn't that the point of saving money ~ to buy more books... who needs a college fund for the kids... Just give them a few books! LOL!!!!
The next thing on my list is I want to find time to read all of these books that I have... so many books so little time!!!!
Question time ladies...
Are you ever at an lost as to what to read next?
How do you decide what to read next?
Does coming off a series of books make it harder for you to chose the next series... or single book?
Tell me your thoughts...
Does the cover persuade you to read one book over another (hot guy... yummy lips... delicious abs and gawd only knows what else **just giving you an idea**
Does the storyline draw you more.?
What makes you fingers pick the next book??
Well... looking forward to seeing you tomorrow evening....
Oh ps... when you post... if you dont mind... let me know what time zone you are in... I know we are all over and you do not have to devulge your info if you do not want to .... just think it would be neat to know who is just going to bed and who is just waking up!!!
BTW, I am central standard time. I live in Louisiana. I am writing this to you at 10:12 pm on Wednesday night!!
So, with that... I will bid you a-due!
