Better today after a little shopping

I feel much better today... much more together and happier. I went to Chapters, the nearby bookstore, and I bought some books and magazines. I had to buy magazines; the fall fashion issues are out and I want to see what's new for fall.

I also bought Dark Water, a collection of short stories by Koji Suzuki (who also wrote Ring, the book on which the Ring movies are based). The first story was made into the Japanese and US versions of the movie Dark Water. Adrift was the basis for Open Water 2: Adrift. and I think some of the other stories might have been made into movies as well. It's a good read, so far.

I also bought By Blood We Live, the third collection of stories edited by John Joseph Adams - the other two are The Living Dead and Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse - although they're all listed as being by Stephen King because one of his stories is included in each collection. By Blood We Live, a collection of vampire stories, has a story by Neil Gaiman that I think I've never read. but that isn't why I bought it - I bought it because I have the other two anthologies and I like the stories in them. It looks like Adams has edited a couple of other short story collections; I'll have to see if I can find them, too.

So you see it was a productive trip out for more than one reason :) Tomorrow I'll need to get some groceries so I'll had out at some point and do that.
