Today's trip to Barnes & Noble

Today I made another masterful buying trip to Barnes & Noble. Note that I categorize this as a buying trip and not a shopping trip. I didn't have time to shop—to leisurely walk up and down the rows seeing what might catch my interest. Instead, I went into the store with a mission. My objective was to find the 4th and 5th books in Aimée and David Thurlo's series starring Ella Clah. Jaime just started reading the series and I decided to re-read from the beginning, so we need to locate copies of Enemy Way and Shooting Chant. As luck would have it, neither of those books were in the store, but that didn't prevent me from picking up Mourning Dove, one of the more recent in the series. While I was in the store, I saw a featured display on books by Alexander McCall Smith, so I picked up The Good Husband of Zebra Drive, The Right Attitude to Rain, and the unabridged audio on CD of Espresso Tales. I had purchased Espresso Tales in print a while back, but was not enjoying the reading of it. I had listened to the first book in that series (44 Scotland Street, so decided I'd do the same thing this time. In addition to these books, I bought Jaime the beginning books in Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas series. It's so neat that she enjoys reading many of the same books that I do. I hope she'll enjoy these series, too.
