Books Bought - I Usually Have So Much Self Control!

Books Bought is a meme hosted by Cindy's Love of Books. I've never had to participate in this before because I rarely, rarely buy books for myself. I swap books on paperbackswap and patiently wait until mine become available and that is enough. I get my book buying fill with the myriad of birthdays I buy for each month. Alas, I was in Borders this last weekend and they had some great books on their buy one, get one 50% off table that I've been 'wishing' for on PBS forever so I broke my rule and went for it! Oh well! At least they'll all count for my challenges this year. Ok here's what I got!

1. 'The Female Brain' By Louann Brizendine, M.D.

2. 'The Sugar Queen' by Sarah Addison Allen

3. 'The Botany of Desire' by Michael Pollan

4. 'My Life in France' By Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme

So I shouldn't feel guilty for breaking my ban, right because this was a good deal I think! How about you? Bought some great books recently?


  1. Ok get out of my head. Sugar Queen is quite possibly my favorite book. I looooove it. in fact, I'm reading it again right now.

  2. You did get some great books! I have Female Brain on my shelf but haven't read it yet.

    No guilt about buying books - there are worse vices!

  3. Botany of Desire is on my wish list - really liked Pollan's other books. Also want to read My lIfe in France.

  4. Ooh, those all look fascinating. I love The Sugar Queen's cover! The Botany of Desire has been on my to-read list for a long time.
