Borders lured me back again. After my tirade against the store's policy to hold fewer titles on their shelves so they could face more books out, I've felt a bit hypocritical returning again and again to purchase additional books from them. My only concession is that I've only purchased books when I have a coupon.
Today was no exception.
I have been wanting Jacqueline Carey's Santa Olivia since I learned of its existence (about three weeks ago). While Carey's Kushiel series are my all-time favorite novels, I've read only one non-Kushiel novel and didn't even make it all the way through it, it was so bad. So this is my second attempt to see if Carey is a one-world author for me or not.
This is also the last book I should need for a while. A long while. At least until next year, though I know it's too optimistic to say I won't buy another novel until 2010. I am curious, however, to see how long I last.
So as of June 26, I'm on a no-book-buying mission. I'll be sure to let you know how long I last. I predict three months, though I'm tempted to say only one month. Feel free to share your predictions. I promise not to be offended.
