I just bought a book off of Amazon. It is "Lily and the Octopus" by Steven Rowley. This seems to be written a little unusually, but I think it will be a good reading challenge for me, and it looks like a touching story.

A Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child. I really shouldn't since I just bought 6 others, but I saw it and it was on sale. I'm down to 1 shelf of TBR on my last bookcase. I should get to it soon.

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I get most of my books out of the library. If I love it, I'll buy a copy. This is the last book I loved enough to buy--hardcover!

I just bought Shelia Walsh's It's Okay Not to be Okay from Amazon. It's still lying on my dresser waiting to be opened. I've been too obsessed with my e-books for OnlineBookClub! :lol:

The last hard copy book I bought was a knitting book, I love to knit. Now I am lucky enough to get all of my reading books free for doing the reviews and BOTDs!

I just bought 2 new books via Amazon.
"A Map of Days", by Ransom Riggs.
"An Olive Grove at the Edge of the World", by Jared Gulian.

These are a present to myself. What better way to start the new year, than with 2 new books? :) Happy Reading!
