Does anyone else use any type of magazine to find new books? I read the Advance at my bookstore, which is a monthly publication of new books coming out, being released in all formats. My bookstore lady actually goes through it every order day (once a week) and who ever rights their name next to a book, she orders it for you. Which is nice, because she gives a 20% off discount on all new books she orders.
I also read the Romantic Times Reviews. I love that magazine and thought for the longest time that it was the only thing out there like it, and was sad that it was only romances (though I love them, and it now has a mainstream fiction section!).
But the other day I was at Barnes and Noble looking at magazines (since my vow to no longer buy books unless they are absolutely must haves) and found another magazine for people like me! It's called Bookmarks: For Everyone Who Hasn't Read Everything. It's an awesome magazine and I've only looked at half of it and found 3 books to add to my TBR.
I also use the very small section in Entertainment Weekly to find books. Usually there's at least one I'm interested in, but I'm easily interested LOL.
So, over the last few days I've found a few books in these magazines that I've added to my ever growing TBR mountain. They are titled as follows:
I'm Sorry You Feel That Way: The Astonishing but True story of a Daughter, sister, Slut, Wife, Mother and Friend to Man and Dog by Tina Jordan
Doghead by Morten Ramsland
The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dustbowl by Timothy Egan
Down and Out In the Great Depression:Letters From The Forgotten Man edited by Robert S. McElvaine
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs
I have many more pages to look through and am excited to do so. Finding new books to read is almost as much fun as reading them!
