So I'd been putting off popping into the only UBS around here.  I looked around a bit and decided that her prices were a little high.  But I asked her if she had The Windflower by Laura London, expecting her to say no and surprise she had a copy.

I know I'm almost afraid to read it because what if it sucks!  But at least I'm onlly out $2.50.  And now I have 5 more spots on my WL. 

I think the next book that's been on my WL a long time is either Beast Warriors by Autumn Dawn or 24hrs As a Sex Vixen by Lisa Cach.  But I don't want either of thsoe bad enough to really scout them out.  It never occurs to me to look for htem in UBS.

I liked The Windflower. The characters were so interesting.

My latest trip to the UBS produced three trade copies of The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo.  So I am standing in line to check out and the woman who owns the shop says to me, can I take this couple behind you first, I have something I want to show you.  And I say, Sure.  So she says to the lady behind me, What can I help you find.  And the woman points to my pile of GWTDT books and says, That, for my book club!  So I end up with no copies of GWTDT but a brand new copy of Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt, Mr. Impossible and a few other good ones for half price. 

I have never seen a new romance book in that store and now I know why.  She saves them under the counter for her regular customers.  So I gave her a list of WL books.  Maybe she will make our wishes come true.

I found Bliss by Judy Cuevas (Judith Ivory) today for 50 cents.  My eye skimmed over it at first -- when I took in what it was, I literally went breathless.

Willa,

 You lucked out with that find. I got lucky and found Stormfire at the UBS for $2.00 the other day.
