don't. :) Since my birthday landed on a Saturday I did my birthday book trip a few days early.

My non-book presents. Not pictured are two BN gift cards, which I used on my
shopping trip. Thank you to my Mom and sister and also a big Thank you to

  1. Woot!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Love your B-day presents and I hope you enjoy your day - each year just gets better and better!

  2. Thank you Michelle! Thanks for the birthday wishes on your blog too. :)

  3. Happy Birthday Anna. Looks like you got a lot of books this week. Come visit me as well over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

  4. First of all Happy Birthday. I got Retribution this week two. Actually I got two copies because apparently I won one I didn't know about and I had one preordered. I have the two Anne Bishop novels in my library two, it's a really good series.

  5. Happy, happy birthday--I went through some years when I didn't acknowledge birthdays, but found that they kept coming anyway so began to celebrate. After all, birthdays don't just mean advancing age, they also mean acquiring wisdom and good judgment about living--well, hopefully that's so if we do it right. I have gotten mostly ebooks lately but did get a few print books lately. Love receiving books in the mail most of all. Have a wonderful day and a terrific year to come!

  6. Retribution may be my summer vaction gift to myself. We go to the beach every year and I tend to splurge on one book I want that is new and costs more than I would usually spend.

    Happy birthday! Hope you enjoyed a great day.

  7. Happy Birthday! Hope you're birthday was a great one.

  8. Grace,
    Thank you! I'll definitely check out your blog.

    Thank you for the bday wishes. I loved the Black Jewels series and have read the books... I'm just getting around to adding them to my library.

    Thank You!

    Dr. J,
    Thank you for the wise words and birthday wishes. I haven't really tried to hide my age. I don't look 35. I was quite excited when I got carded the other. LOL!

    Thank you for the wishes.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes. I'm really looking forward to reading Retribution. Usually I would have gobbled it up by now, but I will very soon. :)

  9. Happy Birthday Anna! Bookstore gift cards are my favorite gifts, and it looks like you put yours to good use! Enjoy!

  10. happy birthday to you!

    and for the record, i LOVE that 'Dark Kiss' smell or whatever it is from B&BW. so yummy.

  11. Happy Birthday! I can't wait to see what you think of Primal Law... I had it in my hand, but put it back at the last minute because I didn't want to spend to much. And I'm a tiny bit jealous of Darker Still. I can't wait for it to come out.

  12. Happy Belated Birthday!!!!!
