You have a way cooler library system than I. Great buys and awesome price. I just did the three and a half day read for Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and the Omen Machine by Terry Goodkind before that. Still, what bums me out is that some of my favorite fantasy/romance/women with swirds authors are doing digital exclusives. I am torn. I must one day save money and get a digital reader. *sniff* I don't want to betray paper.....

Thank you for your blog. You do a great job for people like me who loves books as well.
