Weekend: Books at Borders

















Last weekend, was a long day! I wasn't having a good day but once I got home thing got better as soon as I sat down in front of my laptop to check emails, check on FB and blogs. And then after that I watch some TV shows with dinner in front of me. It was blessing...

Last week I went to Borders to check to see if there any new books out. Because I'm a Borders Award member, I got two coupons to use for the day. It was for 1.) a free drink and 2.) I get 33% off of any one item. Little brother tag along with me, and I decided to give the free drink to him since he wanted the Strawberry FruitKula. I took the book coupon for myself. So I browse through the bookstore but didn't find anything new or anything I want. This mean I have to wait until the last week of August or in September for the new books release. I wasn't going to buy any books (yeah right, like I could walk out the store empty handed *grin*)but I notice an interesting cover and pick up the book. I read the back synopsis and thought it might be something I would like to read. I want to be sure the book was stand alone, so I flip to the last few pages from the book to see if there a hint of any connection titles that I need to pick up. Yes there is. So I pick up the other title too and took it to the check out counter and pay for the books with the coupon. I'm not sure if there are other titles that is connection to the two books, but if someone know it then please let me know. I'm looking forward to read both books! :)

The two books I brought were Lone Star Woman and Man of the West, both by the same author Sadie Callahan. I love the cover art for both books! Anyone ever read the books? Your opinion?

Happy reading everyone!

I haven't heard about this author, but I think the covers are gorgeous! I hope you'll enjoy reading them and I can't wait to hear what you'll think of them!

Interesting books there, Julia. That's really nice of you to give that free drink to your brother. :D Yep, it's very hard to walk out of the bookstore empty-handed. I'm glad you walk out with two! LOL

@Alice - Yeah, little brother have been craving for that drink..so I thought, why not let him have it teehee. And you right, it very hard to walk out without books. That is sooo unheard of teehee. Have a good weekend!
