i love a good page turner..


this is what i picked up at the book store yesterday during my walk around the city. i started off at an underground mall nearby, and on my way home i decided to stop at indigo to get my dad his birthday card. then i got to looking around and could have easily walked out having spent $100, but i didn't-just the card. then i realized, i'm off until i start school on may 10 and i need some books! and also a good read for the bus ride next week. seeing as the books at indigo are expensive/normally priced, i decided to head on over to my favorite book store: BMV Books. they sell new and used books at ridiculously awesome cheap prices. except the book in the top left corner (which was given to my mom by a friend to give to me), i got all 5 books shown for a total of $22. score, right? had i paid the price on the back of the books, my total would have been $56.

as you can see, i definitely like a certain type of book. don't get me wrong, i love a good girly book about a girl finding her way and falling in love in paris, or shopping or..you get the point..every once in a while, but true crimes are fascinating to me. i literally just cannot put them down. i think i read about 12 of them last summer. some people don't get it, like "how can you read about murders, doesn't it make you depressed, don't you have nightmares, are you a freak?" lol but you like what you like, right?

Love love love book stores, especially discount/used ones. I don't read much true crime, but I think I may have to check out the Manson book.One of my favorite books is Capote's "In Cold Blood".

I'm a true crime reader myself, among other things. Crime Scene is very good. I think you'll enjoy it a lot.
