Friday Buys 6/25/11 - 7/22/11

I've had to slow down and not buy any books.  I just got my driver's license and now have to pay insurance now I've been out of work.  So what I've bought has been SUPER cheap...which is fine by me, as usual. ;)

Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
I'd heard of this book before, and definitely of this author (I bought her two books, Wildwood Dancing and Cybelle's Secret used as well).  This book showed up for 50 cents at my library bookstore, and I kept seeing it every time I was in there. So then, when I read an awesome post by Small Review, I decided I was going to just buy it.  50 cents can't hurt me. ;)

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
This one was about $4.00 at this awesome bookstore I found about a mile from my house.  The store is used paperbacks, but honestly, this one looks brand new.  I actually got it for $1.00 because I traded in another book for it.

Magyk by Angie Sage
LOVE these books!  This one's a bit beat up but it's still readable....and it was only 50 cents!! :D  I only spent $2.00 on books this month and I'm proud of it!!  (Read my review for Magyk.)

Sorry the picture's are dark...didn't have time to edit.  It's the photographer in me that's being!

Happy reading!!! :D


  1. I have been trying to read the books I have and not buy any new ones lately too, but I am such a book addict that it is very hard. You got some great deals thought congrats

  2. I love how thrifty you are! You're a book buyer after my own heart. We must be extra connected this week because I just picked up a copy of Daughter of the Forest too!

  3. Small... Thats so funny, my fellow thrifty book shopper :) i cant wait to get around to it!
    Jan - its so hard but books will always be my financial downfall...haha!
