I am always on the look-out for a shelved copy of New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. The street date is allegedly September 6, 2006 according to the bookseller at Barnes and Noble. However, the author says that she has it on good authority that the book will be out the last week in August. Anyone who has seen a copy or bought a copy, give a yell. I will be green with envy but alas it would give me hope of seeing my own copy soon, too.
UPDATE: Just got a tip that New Moon has been spotted on the shelves at Barnes and Noble and at Borders. I am going to Barnes and Noble today to see if I can find it, too.
I rarely visit the bookstore much these days but I did purchase a couple of non-romance novels like The Night Gardner by George Pelecanos. Pelecanos writes for one of the best TV series on television today: The Wire (3rd season releases tomorrow, 8/8/06). Both Pelecanos and Dennis Lehane write for the show which in part is presented in a novelization format. If you enjoy Lehane you’d enjoy Pelecanos for those who read mystery. I love reading them both.
I also bought Philip Pullman’s Sally Lockhart Trilogy and His Dark Materials Trilogy. Both are classified as YA novels and I’ve been lucky of late of enjoying these types of books. I’ve heard great things about this author.
What are you planning to get? What are you anticipating this month?
