Back to the B&N for some purchases. All of the overstock variety.
I picked up Ace Atkins latest book, White Shadow. This I actually bought used. I have been reading Ace all the way back to his first, Crossroad Blues. This book is non-series and concerns events in 1950's Florida. I think. Ace is tops in my book, so I don't need much reason to buy anything he writes. Nick Travers is Ace's series character. Nick is a Blues Historian by day and righter of wrongs at night. These novels usually begin with Nick trying to dig up some facts on a long forgotten blues musician and in the process he discovers evil deeds. Murder, graft, the usual.
Next...... about a decade ago there was this crazy fascination with the Hypermodern novel. Instantly collectible books that were virtually impossible to buy for a reasonable price just weeks after release. I have a larger piece I want to write about that topic, but long story short I bought Julia Spencer-Fleming's Out of the Deep I Cry. Her first book is In the Bleak Midwinter and it will set you back about $150. Steep for a five year old book, but also understandable given the proven talent of her later books.
T. Jefferson Parker's, The Fallen was my penultimate purchase. I own a bunch of his books at this point. I should actually try reading one of them.
Last and most importantly, Scotts Lawns: Your Guide to a Beautiful Yard. I'm a man and I'm from the mid-west. Lawn, wife, and country.... in that order.
Total cost: $23.26.
