On the days when a book I have ordered for my personal library arrives, I will post a picture and explain why I just HAD to have it for my very own.
Being a librarian, I'm a firm believer of not purchasing books but using the resources available for FREE!
But there are just some books I have to have. (Besides books for school, although some of those are quite awesome.)
New Book Day is very exciting. It is like Christmas, my birthday, and every holiday rolled into one as I open the box and find a wonderful new adventure. Even if I've already read it. My husband totally makes fun of me, but I don't care. It's New Book Day.
So, without further ado, here the first installment of NEW BOOK DAY! (YAY!!!)
Today's arrival is My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
I read this book a few years ago, and have since read it again AND listened to the audiobook. It is my all time favorite Jodi Picoult book and is definitely in my top ten of all time favorite books ever. I will post a proper review at a later date, no time to do it justice right now!
I have been wanting to purchase this book for a while, but it was not being printed in hardcover, only softcover. And I really wanted a hardcover version. Plus, the movie is coming out in 2009, so I imagine there will be a run on this wonderful novel and I wanted to be SURE to get it just like I wanted it. I finally broke down and ordered it through half.com and now proudly own my very own copy!
Hurray for New Book Day!
