Friday Buys 12/2-16/11

Friday Buys here again!

I've been holding back...not going to thrift stores and cheap book stores and the like - I'm trying not to repeat last Friday Buys...HA!  So far I'm doing ok...shockingly, I haven't bought anything.  WOW.

However, I did realize that last week I forgot to include a book that I bought about a month ago, $2.00, almost brand new:

The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas
Pretty copy, never read it before, but if you've read my thoughts on the newest movie, you'll understand why I could not pass this up. ;)



Besides this great buy, I discovered about two weeks ago that I WON A GIVEAWAY!!!  So, I've decided that winning giveaways never gets old, and there's a rush that comes only from winning a book and having it come in the mail and you holding it knowing that all you did was put your name out there.  WHAT?!  I mean, come on, best feeling EVER.

So, I won this wonderful hardcover copy of Eve by Anna Carey:


And, *ahem*  IT'S SIGNED!!!!  WHOOOHOOO!



From by best friend for my birthday I received these AMAZING vintage beauties -


I love the pages...

  1. I love vintage books. I think I have that same edition of The Robe. I read the book in high school and found the old book in a used bookstore somewhere a few years back. Now I want to re-read it! I remember being swept away by the story.

  2. I love old books! It's a shame that most publishers just don't make books like that anymore. :?
