Friday Buys 11/25 -12/2/11

For about a week or two I was seriously considering a book buying ban.  And during that time I wasn't buying books, so I felt good.  But then on Wednesday I went to a thrift store. know the rest of the story.

DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul - $3.00
Funny thing is, I've always wanted to read these.  And yet, I had only seen them once at the store, and people told me, "Oh, those dragon books, they're really good, but I can't remember the names..."  So I was stuck without being able to add them to Goodreads or find them at the bookstore because I couldn't remember names.  And then, I found them - at the thrift store in Escondido, hilariously.  I recognized the covers and the names and it clicked and I held them in my arms until I had paid and the lady put them into a bag and handed them to me - and now they're mine!!  They're all practically brand new, too!  But the only problem is that I don't have the 2nd book.  But, oh well, knowing me, I'll end up with it somehow...

DragonFire - $3.00

DragonKnight - $3.00

The books together! :D  $9.00 total and I'm three books richer.  I guess that's the best way to look at it. ;) 

And from NetGalley I received:

I couldn't believe that I was accepted - this is one of the top requested books on NetGalley in the Teen & YA section and I wasn't expecting it...  And then, BAM!!  Man, I can't wait to get into it.  I hope it's as good as I want it to be. :)

Anyways...  As you can tell, I have tons and tons of reading to do.  I went a little NetGalley crazy.  But I'm soooo excited about all these. :)

What have you bought recently? :)
