Hoarders, Episode 80: Barnes & Noble, OKC

So a few weeks ago, my husband and I went to Oklahoma for a benefit concert to help raise funds for the victims of the Spring tornadoes that levelled much of Moore and other parts of Oklahoma. We had a great time exploring Oklahoma City despite the almost unbearable heat. It was like a blast of hot air when you open an oven door. Seriously.  Anyway, every time we go somewhere, a bookshop stop is always on our itinerary.

Barnes & Noble on North May Avenue was where we ended up;  a twenty minute cab ride from downtown Oklahoma City where our hotel was. I found a few books but am admittedly disappointed that I didn’t get much. I did, however, find a very cool book bag to go along with my loot.

It has cats dressed as literary greats: Austen, Dickens, and the Brontë sisters. It’s perfect for when I go on my bookshop jaunts.

And here are the books that I found:

Quarantine #2 by Lex Thomas

I haven’t read the first book yet but this series comes highly recommended. It’s one of those adrenaline rush type of read that I need to psych myself up

Mortal Fire by Elizabeth Knox 
I know nothing about this book. It sounds good though. 
Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Grahah
I’m expecting some rapid-fire convos and quips. 
Belladonna by Fiona Paul

I also could not ever, ever resist buying a book from an airport bookstore. This one, I bought at a place called Author’s Bookstore in Minneapolis International Airport. Well, it turns out, this book is actually book number 5 of a series I haven’t read (story of my life). So now, I’m hunting for book number one. Le sigh.

The White Princess by Philippa Gregory

That’s all I’ve got. It’s surprising to me that I only found four books on my jaunt. I usually spend sometime in the bookstore and peruse as studiously as I can. They’re good picks anyway because I didn’t see them in my local bookshop. 

So…show me what you got?
