Since I'm totally magical like that, I emptied my wallet and my pockets this week when I found some extraordinary deals too good to pass up.
Seriously. This week was the glory of all book-buying weeks.
So, my friend has been begging me for two whole years to read these Wheel of Time books...I bought the first one a long time ago but haven't read it. I'm assuming that now that I own the first six, I'll be getting to the first one soon. Yes? I bought these 5 books for a grand total of $2.50...and they're practically brand new.
A Love to Last Forever by Tracie Peterson - $3
This looks so good! I'm looking forward to reading Peterson in the near future! :D
Wings by Aprilynne Pike - $1
Yeah, another hardcover without a jacket, and a book I've been wanting to read!! :D I think someone had a bunch of books they just dropped off at the Friends Bookstore and they all just happen to be practically brand new and books I want to read! :D
Oh! And I'm going to a signing and Pike is going to be there - perfect timing, right?! :D
The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman - $4
Brand spankin' new, gorgeous UK cover (WAYYYY better than the US cover...)... What's not to love?
Inside Out and Outside In by Maria V. Snyder - $2 total
Good condition paperbacks, Snyder - I mean, I could never pass this up!
Shadow Spinner by Susan Fletcher - $.50
Excellent book, I read it a few years ago, and now I can't wait to read it again! :D
The Idiot by Dostoevsky - $2
Already read this book, has been in my top 5 favorite books of all time for almost 5 years...not much can top it. This copy? I'm going to cover my wall with its pages. Literally. ;)
Mary, Bloody Mary by Carolyn Meyer - $.25
Having read The Bad Queen, another Young Royals book, I'm totally ecstatic to read this book! Meyer is a fantastic writer!
See?? I wasn't joking when I said "Tower of Books". So much fun, right?! This is not including the $2 copy of Delirium that I sent to my bestie and the $1 copy of I Am Number Four that I'm going to give to another reader friend.
Calculations conclude that I spent $19 on 15 books. I'd say that's flipping amaaaaazing! :D
