Maybe I have a book problem
On Monday, Kelsey and Jake worked on painting my scrapbook space for me. As a treat for all of us, we headed out for a late lunch (Mexican food) and stopped in at the Half Price Bookstore. Kelsey had reminded me that this was their 50% off weekend sale, so it seemed wrong to not pay them a visit.
Let's just say I have a bit of a problem. By the time I bought Kelsey and Jake a few goodies and this stack pictured above for myself, I'd spent a grand total of $19.61. That's right. I bought 9 books, Jake chose another, and Kelsey left with 3 books and 3 DVDs. I bought all of that for less than $20! I mean, it's kind of ridiculous. How could I pass up such a good deal though?
You might note from my stack that two books are about drawing/painting, three books are travel writing, and four are novels. Be still my heart! At least I'll have plenty of good reading material if we have a nasty winter as is predicted.
Since I'm still working my way through The Book of Madness and Cures and have checked out The Bourbon Kings from the library, I won't start this stack until I've finished my prior commitments. So many books and so little time - tell me: what are you reading these days?
