Why I Limit My Visits to the Poisoned Pen
I know how much the reading obsessed love to check out the book towers of others, so click on the photo to avoid eye strain. Please notice how carefully I stacked them to prevent Pisa Syndrome.
Yes, that was what I brought home from my recent visit to the Poisoned Pen-- THE best mystery bookstore in the U.S. of A. (Not that I'd ever show bias.) Three of the books were freebies given to me by the kind folks who work there. They knew I needed a good cardio-vascular workout carrying these from place to place! (And it worked, although I'd swear my right arm is now longer than my left.)
This photo also answers the question I posed last week in Which Stack Is Mine? For the true sleuth, there were clues. One stack contained a book (Inger Ash Wolfe's The Calling) that I'd already read and reviewed. Plus... I'd also mentioned several of the books in my stack in my New Mystery Releases posts as ones that I'd added to my wish list.
Now they're off my wish list and included in my LibraryThing inventory.
So... are you a good sleuth??? I know that those who answered correctly are in the running for a prize from Kay on My Random Acts of Reading!
Kay has drawn the name of the lucky winner. Congratulations, Nise'!

- Hi! I'm addicted to books (especially crime fiction), laughter and traveling off the beaten path. In my free time, when my eyes aren't glued to the printed page, one of them is usually pressed against the viewfinder of my camera. Let's see... books, laughter, travel, photography. Anything else? Oh yeah-- my dream house wouldn't have a kitchen!
