Today is payday (in my non-writing world) which means a visit to Borders to pick up some new reading.
Having made a number of new friends (if you can use the term so loosely) online via Twitter, many of whom have recently published new books, it seems right to support them and buy their books, even though some are not exactly my usual reading material. That's not a problem, though, as the couple I picked up today have received good reviews.
Of course, finding the books is not always easy. Of the three I went looking for, I found one. The second required a visit to 3 stores, and had to be dug out of a box in the back (it had only just arrived). The third only seems to be available online, so I'll have to wait a couple of weeks for that one.
I'm looking forward to reading all three, knowing that I have a connection with the authors is going to make them a little more special, I think.
I'll share my thoughts when I've finished them.
