Literary Lust: Books I want NOW.

March 2, 2011

Stupid, stupid 30 Day No-Shopping Challenge.  It’s nowhere near my birthday and I have done nothing notable worth gifting (aside from posting on this blog begging for some biblio-esque goodness).

Here my “Books Worth Swooning Over” (and then purchasing!):

I adore me some  Jen Lancaster- she is like a far more articulate version of myself (you know, with like a smart-ass opinion about everything).  She has written of her love of pugs and has excellent taste in handbags- what is there not to love?  I read her first book, Bitter is the New Black and was hooked.

If you need a good laugh but want it coupled with witty commentary and a vocabulary that is expansive and still hilarious- this is the author for you.  You will not go wrong with any of her books- and when I am off this damn challenge I am buying pre-ordering her book and demanding the rest of them for my shelf.  This will happen.

Jen’s sure-to-be-fabulous new book comes out May 3rd and is a stupendous deal at $13.64 for hardcover.

Pre-order If You Were Here on Amazon or other fine booksellers.

Jenny Blake is a popular person in the blogosphere. I adore posts, and her personal journey to getting this published is nothing short of notable and inspiring.   I have already pre-ordered her book- it was available on Amazon for $9.10 with free Prime Shipping.  It’s coming out later this month, but dude, that is a fabulous deal- $9.10??!

Ms. Blake’s book comes out March 29th and you can buy it here (or somewhere else if you are so inclined).

This little gem by Gretchen Rubin just came out in paperback for the fabulous price of $7.72 with free Super Saver shipping on Amazon (By it with Wish You Were Here perhaps, or you can always buy a copy for both of us?).

The Happiness Project just makes me happy- I have heard great things about this book and have totally enjoyed Gretchen’s vlogs and posts online so this is bound to be a great read.
