September Book Buys

I decided to put in a new section about what books I purchase and from where. Depending on how many books I've bought, well, that's how many I'll be putting into each post. So, I hope you enjoy.

This month, I promised myself that I would buy only one book; and that would be 'Boundaries - Say Yes, Say No' by Dr Henry Cloud and Dr John Townsend. My GP recommended this one to me to help with personal issues. I haven't read that far into it as yet, but if I keep skipping over the parts taken from the Bible, I should be fine. I bought this from QBD at Garden City ( or you can purchase it online.

My next book was an impulse buy. I had heard a lot about 'The Graveyard
Book' by Neil Gaiman; and I saw it sitting out the front of Angus & Robertson with the sticker on the front as the '50 Books You Can't Put Down for 2009'... well, how could I dispute that? And as it said in the booklet containing this little book, once I've purchase it, I got to receive a free book as well. There was a choice between 'Grug' or '10 Short Stories You Must Read This Year' by a variety of Australian authors; and I chose the latter.

So, there are my September book purchases. Until next month, Happy Reading!


  1. I think it's adorable that the short stories book has a bunch of shorts on it. :P


  2. Yeah. Aren't they cute? I love them all hanging out there!
