Another blog about books!

I ordered Finnish: An Essential Grammar from Amazon today! This totally made my day, and I will now start counting the days until it comes. I heard it was a very good book that explained Finnish grammar well and really got into the details about things. I was putting a hold on buying it for a couple of months now until I got more familiar with my Beginner's Finnish grammar book I have. Though I haven't had much time to really delve into Beginner's Finnish I think I'm alright enough to start reading a bit of Finnish: An Essential Grammar. Although I doubt I will be able to read the whole thing right now and not be totally confused/discouraged it will make really good reference to the grammar structures covered in my first book.
I also have two other books I want to buy, but these are for leisure purposes. The first one is called La Sombra del Viento, or "The Wind's Shadow," by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Not only have I not read a proper novel in over a year I also desperately need to expand my Spanish vocabulary. It takes place in Barcelona, Spain (does that mean there will be references to Catalan? the language geek in me wonders) and is about love, courage, and magic. I can't wait to read it.
Another one I recently came across due to someone's blog is Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler. This one is about guardian angels, romance, and suspense. Another book I must read!
And the good thing is I have money to buy these!
