Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
I bought several books in December as Christmas gifts and I only ended up buying a book for myself on the 31st. I didn’t get any books for Christmas so I’ve been itching to buy some for the past few days. Book hungry! Good thing I met up with my friend Celina and she brought the books that I asked her to order for me – most of these are from BookCloseOuts. Here’s a shot of the books:
Sorry the flash bounced off the plastic cover of that bright yellow smiley face. Can you guess the titles of the books just by looking at those covers? Okay, let me help you out with this next shot:
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (in glorious hardcover! I missed out on the illustrations when I read the NetGalley edition)
A Field Guide to Burying Your Parents by Liza Palmer
Elfland by Freda Warrington
Slacker Girl by Alexandra Koslow
Happyface by Stephen Edmond
Leaving Unknown by Kerry Reichs
Also got these two other titles because it’s always nice to have duplicates of favorites:
Yay, I have new books! Thank you, Celina, for getting these for me. All of these are bargain copies except for A Monster Calls. It’s always nice to get affordable copies of books, right? I’m looking forward to reading these soon. Have you read any of these titles? Also, what’s your first book purchase in 2012?
