What is the best book you ever bought for yourself?
I bought The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon for myself - brand new in hardcover.
And, why? What made it the best? What made it so special?
I don't often buy brand new (prefer used) and almost never hardcover fiction. I had read the first four books in the series and had to run out and buy the new one as soon as it came out. Made a special trip, paid full price. Enjoyed the book immensely!
