Chills and thrills and books

I'm cold. It's only 43 degrees out right now. And I swear my apartment isn't much warmer. I think I'm going to have to change into something more comfortable. Like oh sweats and soft, warm socks. Anyone want another sock pic? :-)

In other news, Zach Parise (former Fighting Sioux hockey player) got a goal and an assist in his first NHL game for the New Jersey Devils. Yay! Especially since the poor guy left UND last year to play and then well, you know what happened. Get to see his brother in the net in three weeks or so when we head back to ND to see some games.

Also today, went to the grand opening of Half-Price Books here in town. Came out with less than I thought I would, but I will definitely go back when I have a better idea of what I'm looking for. I picked up Cold Feet by Brenda Novak, Loving Mercy by Teresa Bodwell, and Jemima J by Jane Green for $4 total. Also picked up Dilbert and the Way of the Weasel by Scott Adams for my husband and two audioCDs for my grandmother.

Of course, then I headed to Barnes and Noble. There I got A Singular Lady by Megan Frampton, Through a Crimson Veil by Patti O'Shea, and Private Demon by Lynn Viehl. I guess it was support the authors day since I "know" all these ones and that's pretty much why I picked their books over others I was interested in.

And then...to the library to pick up some books I had on hold. They are Kill Me Twice by Roxanne St. Claire, Only With a Highlander by Janet Chapman, and Shoes to Die For by Laura Levine.

Wow...I'm all booked out today.

I think I'm going to get Kill Me Twice in ebook. I've been getting excerpts in my email and what I skimmed looked good.

Thanks, Nicole! Yeah, one of these things is not like the others in that stack--I'll be interested in what you think of those others, I liked, but did not love, the Viehl, although I LOVE the Stardoc series.
