Have you ever...

pulled out a purchase you made a couple of weeks ago, and been like, "What the eff was I thinking?"

I went to the used bookstore a couple of weeks ago, sans kiddies, and I don't know if I was just heady with freedom or what, but I went hog-wild. I know that I wanted to get some Harlequin lines that I have never read before, and I was picking up and putting a lot of stuff down. I also know that I had meant to grab a Harlequin Intrigue and didn't, so I must've put down the wrong book. Or two. But apparently that day, I had a real fascination for the works of Christine Rimmer, secret babies, accidental pregnancies, and most inexplicably, a boss/secretary story. Called "The Boss and his Secretary." I never like those. Nothing against the works of Christine Rimmer, I'm just not sure why I was compelled to buy three books by an author I am completely unfamiliar with. Perhaps she will become an auto-buy.

Oh well, with trade-ins, the whole she-bang was about 4 dollars. I think some are going back unread.

Thus my TBR mountain was born.

I had some Christine Rimmer's once ~ I think I donated them somewhere without ever reading them. I'm not sure how I ever got them, but the storylines just don't appeal to me.

I'm glad it's not just me...

Of course, my friends don't take them back to the bookstore. We mail them to each other as gag gifts. And then you start getting back titles you KNOW you originally sent out into the world. Hmm... that's when they go to the UBS.

Kate, that's awesome. Unfortunately, none of my friends read romance, and these aren't the books I'd send to try to change their minds about it, hee.

Need any accidental pregnancy books to give out?

Devon said...

QB--Hah! So true.

Dev--Good to see ya around. I'm just not why I'm bought ones with such similar storylines, too.
