Books I Could Not Buy

I was off to Borders this morning, gift certificates in hand, ready to buy. I was surprised at the books I didn't find.

No Penderwicks (had the second but not first in series)
No Elegance of the Hedgehog (based on library waiting list, a popular book)
No Diary of A Wimpy Kid, The Last Straw (we already have it, but someone else was trying to find it and couldn't.)
No Airborn or Skybreaker (well, they did have a mass market copy of Airborn, but I want a book that can be read over and over, not a cheap little paperback.)

I have a little money at Barnes and Noble, so I'll check there for the books I didn't get. Then it's on to for the rest.

Here are the books I could buy:

The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
Howl's Moving Castle, by Diana Wynne Jones
The Sea of Trolls, by Nancy Farmer
The Warrior Heir, by Cinda Chima Williams
The Wizard Heir, by Cinda Chima Willimas

I feel a trip to Powell's coming on too! Woo hoo!

I do know about, but I've never participated. I guess I just like going to Powell's and browsing.
