Ok so I was at Costco Yesterday and I totally love that store because they have great prices on books. They usually have a small selection but good books and prices. So yeah now I have two new books :D
Life of Pi
By Yann Martel
Summary: After the Sinking of a cargo ship, a solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild blue Pacific. The only survivors from the wreak are a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi, a hyena, a wounded zebra, an orangutan -- and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger. The scene is set for on of the most extraordinary and beloved works in recent years.
Reason for Getting: Ok so I first heard of this book only a few weeks ago because the movie for it is coming out. I looked it up and it sounded amazing so when I was at the store I was like oh I have heard of this. So I really look foreword to reading this. I probably won't get to it for a while because I have a ton of other books on my To Be Read list before this one, but I will definitely read it eventually.

Reason for Getting: Ok so I have had this book on my To Be Read list for quite a while, so yea now I have it so I can read it. So everything I have heard about this book was good so I can't wait to read it, even if it might be a while.
Hope everyone is having a superb weekend :D
