Books: Want, Need, Desire

First off, for those of you who live in the greater Oregon area and would like some cheap books, the Clackamas Town Center Borders Express is being closed as part of Borders 200 store closing initiative. As of Friday all of their stock will go to 40% off.

Now, I can tell you from experience (and the fact that I had a long talk with the manager) that it will go no lower than this, but 40% is a damn good deal. They have a lot of stock left and it looks like they were still receiving shipments up until last week. Here's a chance to go pick up some new books (or old books that you really wanted to read) at a very deep discount, so go spend your money.

Second, I want this book. Not only are they sending out the ARC in an evidence bag with a free DVD tour of the book's setting, but the whole novel happens to take place in my town! Who better than a resident of Portland, Oregon to review a fictional novel about a Portland serial killer? I could give excellent feedback, I tell you.

Anyone close to the nice Publicity folk at Minotaur?

I'd give the book away after I read it. Promise.

Third, I don't know if you care, but my book review on Lisa Kleypas's Sugar Daddy will be up on Paperback Reader tomorrow...despite the fact that the book is not a paperback. The ARC I had was one though, and that's good enough for me.

That's all for now, I've got a temp job to go interview for. Who knows, tomorrow I could be learning the fine art of taking horse racing bets.
