A Testament to Waldens

Jyg and I took a trip to South Padre Island yesterday, staying only for the night. Not the most fabulous vacation, but with Jyg everything is wonderful. On the way home today, we stopped by Valle Vista Mall in Harligen to shop at Forever 21 - Izzy's birthday is tomorrow and purchasing a birthday present is a must. This isn't a fashion blog - and I don't pretend I know a lick of spit about fashion - but there is seriously something wrong with the fashion of Forever 21. Maybe it was the transsexual mannequins.

Because Valle Vista is the only mall I'm aware of that still has a Waldens Bookstore within it, I was pulled into the doors by its gravity. Now there's a good thing that the closest Waldens is in Harligen because there always seems to be a sale going on that makes me spend money I shouldn't spend. Today's deal was buy 4 get the 5th free - a.k.a. the Sucker-Willie-Into-Buying-Books Sale. And because I'm book greedy, I just had to buy the following titles:

  1. Franny and Zooey
  2. The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrun
  3. Whip It
  4. Detour: My Bipolar Road Trip in 4-D
  5. Candy
 Arriving home, I saw that my copy of The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen arrived yesterday. Ahh, today was a nice day to be a book hunter.
