What's in a Bookstore?

I went to my local Barnes and Nobles today to get a gift certificate for a family member and I spent most of the time leafing thru the new arrivals. I love the Christmas themed books put out for the holiday season and the cutesy ones for the whole family. One was about a cat and why they feel the way they do, another was a whole list of favorite YouTube links to the best of the best videos. I mean who wouldn't be interested in checking that out? And Donna VanLiere has a new one out that is suppose to be another book turned into holiday classic....I wanted to purchase so many of the books that I almost forgot why I went in there....sheesh.....I love book stores, theres no doubt about it...I just cannot wait to see if anyone bought me any of the ones I was googling over....but of course we all know unless we list them on our "wish list" that the ones chosen for us may not be the ones we wanted, but then that could be a good thing, as we may find a new author just that way....
As you all know I am a Mary Higgins Clark fan and absolutely love her books and she has not disappointed us and has come out with a new one for the holidays that I sure hope I find under my tree...and it is written with her daughter Carol Higgins...
It is about a group of employees who go in together to purchase a lotto ticket that wins, but them find out the person who was suppose to but it never did..or did he? Mary Higgins Clark's favorite characters Alvirah Meehan, the amateur sleuth, and private investigator Regan Reilly are visiting the town where the mystery is at....its a fast-paced holiday caper that will keep you glued to your chair in front of the fireplace on these cold winter nights....I sure plan on doing that as soon as I get the book! :)
Now back to what's in a book store? Well books of course.......now you already knew that one didn't you???
