Friday Buys - The Everything's Extra 5% Off, Must Buy Whole Store! Edition

So....first, let's start with what I bought used.

Promise Me This by Cathy Gohlke - $2
It's in perfect condition!  Annnnd just the synopsis alone gave me butterflies!!  Ahhhh I can't wait to read it!!

Wake by Amanda Hocking - $3
Brand spanking new, guys.  I'm just cracking up.  Every time I go into this bookstore there's a brand new Amanda Hocking book, in order of publication, just waiting to be bought for really cheap.  I'm guessing Lullaby will be next?  And I'll be there to snatch it up! ;) 

Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones - $2
I can't wait to read her books!

A Darkness Forged in Fire by Chris Evans - $1
I NEVER buy adult fantasy....but here it is.  I bought this one, because IRON ELVES just sounds way too cool for me to pass up.

OUT OF REACH by Carrie Arcos - gifted
Ashley from Ashley Loves Books...she's just...wayyyy too cool for her own good.  I love her.  And she bought me this for Christmas, AT a Carrie Arcos signing, SO I GOT TO GET IT SIGNED!  I'm so happy.  Really and truly.  THANK YOU ASHLEY!!!!

Some swag...
You know you want it! (Come back another time for a chance to win some of this goodness!) ;)

('Cause there's bound to be more than one...)

Scent of Magic by Maria V. Snyder
When this amazingness came in the mail the other day, I about died.  I AM SO EXCITED!!!  It's beautiful, a finished copy, and brand new, and just soooo lovable!!  AND...

It came with BOOKMARKS.


Tempest by Julie Cross - $8
If you've read my review (read it here!), then you know how much I LOVE this book.  And Jackson.  And Holly.  And Julie.  So, you know, I'm happy.  $8 was a steal on Amazon and I'm just way too excited!! :DDDD


And NOW.
The Barnes and Noble purchases.  Because I'm a teacher, I get 20% off all B&N purchases.  Because it was December 1st, and B&N is cool like that, I received an EXTRA 5% off of everything I bought.  I bought 2 things and then went back in and bought 6 more.  3 ended up being Christmas presents, so here are the 5 for me, plus one I bought used.

The Canterbury Tales by Chaucer - $.50
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens (Because I'm addicted to Dickens...)
Notes from the Underground and other short stories by Fyodor Dostoevsky (Because I'm also addicted to Dostoevsky.)
Complete works of Edgar Allen Poe


So, there you go.

The moral of the story:  Don't tell me when there's a deal going on.  I will empty my wallet. ;)

What have YOU bought this week or last few weeks?  Link me up!! :D

    Wow Sierra! What a great haul! I can't wait to read Wake, I haven't read a single Amanda Hocking book, can you believe it? It's a travesty. Wake has such a gorgeous cover, I need a copy just so it can sit and look stunning on my shelf:) Enjoy all your goodies!

  2. What a fantastic haul! And LOVE the signed MVS! Congrats!

  3. Where do you get all your used books (besides from amazon)?
    And how do you have so much time to read? xD

  4. <3 <3 <3 Dark Lord of Derkholm! I actually need to buy a new copy - mine's all busted now. If you've never read her before, you really should. She's wonderful.

  5. Wow. I am insanely jealous right now. I haven't bought anything sadly, but I've been wanting to read most of these books! Congrats and have happy reading ;)
