When I was not being lured by the call on the blogs or internets I went shopping. I am a bit of a crap shopper, I go in, I get, I go. Not into too much browsing around, unless it is a bookstore. Now there I could happily spend an hour or so.
Todays mission was to find two books suggested by Jenb after posting here. Book shops here can be pretty crap here but the beloved and I hiked around several blocks and through a whole 3 book stores today in the city. The man has stamina!
I finally found a good GLBT section in the last store and was thrilled to find Longhorns by Victor J. Banis. I don’t have many of my m/m in print really, most are in ebook format. So, to have something in print is kinda great as I have serious coveting issues only another true bibliophile would understand!
Then I had a pretty cool time at the counter. I took the book up and handed it over and this gorgeous young guy (glasses, curly hair, about 1000 yrs younger than me, glasses) said, Hey, this is a really cool book, AND then the girl next to him said, Yeah it is, I loved it. It was so cool and I felt less of a geek than I usually do buying yaoi manga or mooching in the GLBT section. He then took me back over to the table and suggested another couple of books I might like and we then talked about books. He was so passionate about his reading and I am so going back! He gave me good book! The beloved watched on with eyebrow raised, he is such a god, and he did not tell me once to get my ass into gear. A god I tell you!
So, happy with my purchases and settling in for a good weekend of reading and anticipating my online order arriving of this and this. Thanks Jenb! Anyone read The Back Passage? Think I saw that, so might have to whip into the city next weekend and pick it up… ) Good night for rain on the roof reading.
