I never would of chosen The Pillars of the Earth to read. It was given to me and if you haven't had the chance you really should pick it up. A very good read. I was really surprised.
When ever I am in the market for a book I go to half.com.
If you have never been you really should check it out. There is no bidding and you choose from the prices listed which one you want. I hate paying full price. I love to read but haven't really had much of a chance in the last year or so. Life has just been so busy. We will be going on vacation soon so I have a couple of books packed!
