Today was my birthday! And...as should be the case for all book-lovers, I got books. My husband let me treat myself to some goodies from Amazon (which arrived this past week) and then today we went on a bookstore trip and I picked up some more. Here's what I got:

1.
The Finishing Stroke by Ellery Queen (Pocket size edition!!)
2. Faro's Daughter by Georgette Heyer (classic edition of her Regency Romance)
3. Powder & Patch by Georgette Heyer (classic edition of her Regency Romance)
4.

Happy Belated Birthday! Sounds like a good one! I love to spend my birthdays in bookstores too (as do many of us, I'm sure). Best wishes for the year to come!

Oh, oh, shame on me!!! Belated happy birthday wishes to you, Bev.

I knew you said it was in July, but somehow I thought it was later in the month.

I hope it was a great celebration!

The best birthday ever! LOVE getting to pick books out - although this year, my older daughter decided that I would do better with a new bookcase (already overflowing) to hold the books I already have! Hope it was great!
