So…today after work, I went to the mall to go to the Hallmark store so I can buy some Mother’s Day cards for my mom and my sister. I should have gone straight home…but instead I took a detour to Borders Bookstore…just to check out some books. Big mistake.

Borders was having a “buy four and get the fifth book for free” sale. O, Dios mio. Well, being a card carrying bookaholic I am…of course, I did get five books. But I didn’t get just one book for free…but two because I had a free $5 coupon for being a member! Sweet!
Here were the books that I bought:
1. The Help by Kathyrn Stockett
I have wanted this book from the get-go! The book is about three women living in the 1960’s South. It’s similar in The Secret Life of the Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, and since I loved that book, I got The Help.

2. The Diplomat’s Wife by Pam Jenoff
Y’all know about my WWII obsession right? Well, this was why I bought this book. It’s part romance and part war novel. It should be good.

3. The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle It’s a mystery classic featuring Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick, Dr. Watson. This was my free $5.00 book. Heehee.

4. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Platt
The first time I saw this on the shelf, I just grabbed it and never looked back.

5. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Finally! I got his first novel. Yay!

I can’t wait to read these books. I hope I will not be disappointed although I think they all got pretty good reviews.
