Tomorrow, I'm off to the library book sale--the Metropolitan Library System book sale in Oklahoma City. This must be one big sale because they hold it in one of the buildings at the fairgrounds.

Hmmm, let me look at my checklist: comfy shoes? check! WL and RL? check! hubby's money? check! rolling carry-on luggage? check! Okay, I think I'm ready! :)

Make sure you take one of those little two-wheeled carts with you for book shopping:)  I never go to a library sale without one.

I got quite a few that were on my reminder list but only a few of them are WL books. I was pretty happy to find The Raven Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt. I got a couple of Kinley MacGregor's Brotherhood of the Sword series, a couple of Sabrina Jeffries' Royal Brotherhood books, and a good copy of Julie Garwood's Ransom.

I think I'm going back tomorrow too--with a bigger suitcase!  :)

I came home with 126 books.....OMG, I could have spent all day there!! As it was, I was there at least 3 hours each day (Sat and Sun)....just when I thought I was ready to go, the nice book ladies kept putting new romances on the table.  How could I leave? :)

So, what did I find? I found a like new copy of Duke of Scandal, which I had been wanting, as well as a well-read copy of The Leopard Prince....I found some "cozy" mysteries--new genre for me! Quite a few historicals....some romantic suspense...some paranormals, including Sex and the Immortal Bad Boy. I also found some sci-fi/fantasy books that look really good.  I found some of the books for my 2008 Reading Challenge. All in all, it was a good haul. Most of the books are on my reminder list but I only found one book from my WL. Sorry Willa, Kim, and Dawn--didn't see anything for yall either!   :(

Can't wait til next year!
