I really shouldn't be allowed out of the house

Today I had to run a few errands. I had uploaded our vacation pictures to Ritz to be printed (I'm old-fashioned that way - they're digital, but I NEED the physical prints), along with a couple 10x13 enlargements that I was planning to frame for my husband. Um, lets see if I can show you those... here they are:

My husband is very nostalgic about this vacation spot, so I thought framed enlargements would be a nice gift. They turned out really nice. I'll let you know later if he appreciated them.

Anyway, I also needed to stop by Barnes and Noble for a gift certificate for Meg's friend's birthday tomorrow. I came out with the gift certificate PLUS:

They're still in the bags, which is the odd background in the shots. The sad thing is that there are a couple that I MAY HAVE read before, but I just can't remember anything about them. I can't help it; the bargain tables SUCK ME IN every time. Hardcovers for less than the price of a paperback. How could I possibly resist? Yes, I am a book junkie.

There is nothing wrong with being a book junkie!

Those books look great! And the pictures are gorgeous. I'm sure your husband will appreciate them.

I love that first photo - the dock looks like it's floating in mid-air.

Ooh! I haven't read that Douglas Preston book yet! (I love his stuff.)

You'll have to do a review of that one and the one by Jeff Povey. Sounds intriguing.

Nice vacation photos. I am a sucker for the bargain book table, too.

I call it being a book whore. And that is sooooo me. :)
