An unexpected find

— feeling happy

Well, my book shopping trip to Tucson proved a little disappointing. The book I hoped to reacquire was gone, and the works on the War of 1812 that I somehow thought I would magically discover while I was there weren't on the shelves. Still, I found a few desirable titles that I purchased, so it wasn't a waste of time by any stretch. Best of all, though, was an unexpected discovery at our third stop.

 

 

This little collection of Ace Doubles was sitting in a bin of free items. The opportunity was too good to pass up, so I snapped them all up and added them to my haul.

 

Perhaps noting them as the highlight of my trip is a little sad, but I'm looking forward to systematically working my way through them. I often like to take a few days at the end of the semester to indulge myself with some fun fiction. I think I just found my reading for the next month, and you can count on seeing some reviews coming out of it, too.
