Make Mine Double Trouble
MAKE MINE DOUBLE TROUBLE:
How often do you buy a good mystery for yourself and then think your friend must have a copy to read? I do this often especially at gift buying time for birthdays. The problem is I put the book up and forget who I purchased the book for and then I just think I have an extra copy.
Is book gift buying challenging for you when you try to buy a book for others? I know it can be for me because a couple of my closest friends collect book and like me they are not exactly organized on their book buying. It helps when they have a wish list listed somewhere.
Do you have a wishlist so your friends and family know what books you would like to have? Do you keep your wishlist updated?
Tell us about some of your favorite authors whose books you HAVE TO HAVE the minute they are released for eithe pre order or on the book shelves?
Some of mine are Carolyn Hart, Sarah Strothmeyer, Mary Daheim, Nancy Atherton, Lorraine Bartlett, JB Stanley, Lisa Scottoline, Jeff Cohen, Brenda Joyce, Laura Levine and Selma Eichler.
I have to admit to loving anything by Rex Stout but of course his death sorta book a damper on new books. LOL
I also loved Patricia Sprinkle's Books but she quit writing the series that I dearly loved.
How many of your favorite author write more than one series or have quit writing your favorite series?
Until next week here's wishing you great book buys and even greater library trips!
