Weekend Finds

Used book store finds from this weekend. I know I haven't been posting much, but I am just kinda swamped in life right now. Not so swamped that I didn't have time to run down to the used bookstore and use all my store credit.
Sadly, only one of these books is for me. The other three are Christmas presents. I picked up Full Bloom for $1 and the main reason that two friends on Goodreads gave it high ratings. I have never read anything by Jayne Ann Krentz/Stephanie Laurens, but I know she is popular. I am currently reading it and for it being over 20 years old, it isn't dated at all. Whether or not it is good remains to be seen.
Bitter is the New Black is a standby Christmas present for me. I really think one of the volunteers at my library will love it. I read Cutting for Stone for my book group and LOVED it. Love, love, love! So I thought my sister would appreciate it. Quest for Justice is for my dad, because he loves anything legal and this is a local author/lawyer.

I will try to get back to posting regularly. I have a couple of picture book reviews saved up that needed to be posted for the world to see.

The mystery of the stolen charger....

One of my part-time people asked me to come help with a situation with a patron regarding a charger of some form. I didn't know anything about the situation when I approached the patron.

Patron: Hi, the daytime security officer said I could plug my charger into the outlet next to the drink machine, but he said it might get stolen.

Me: Ok, was it stolen?

Patron: No, no one would want it. It cost $5 and it was very tattered.

Me: Ok, so what's going on?

Patron: Well, has anyone turned a charger in recently? Mine is gone.

Me: No, it was probably stolen.

Patron: Well, it was hidden between the coke machine. No one could see it.

Me: But obviously someone found because it isn't there.

Patron: But no one would want that charger.

Me: Obviously someone did. The security officer did warn you that it might be stolen.

Patron: He did, but no one would want that and it was hidden out of sight.

We had this conversation for like 10 more minutes until I handed it over to the security guard, who went on the same merry-go-around for 10 more minutes.
