Linda Finally had a chance to peak into Borders; I was surprised the one near me that is closing had everything reduced by only 25% (I was hoping for better deals). Anyhoo, I picked up:

The Hunger Games (already read it but my daughter wants to read it)
Summer by Edith Wharton
A Christmas Carol
The Importance of Being Earnest
(the last two for the Brit. Lit. class I'm teaching, so my daughter has her own copies.)


Tara Colleen (TaraColleen) | 3 comments So far in MARCH I have bought(at Borders) Await Your Reply, Visit From the Goon Squad, Dog On It, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Mathilda Savitch, Skippy Dies, Diary, and Rant!

Got my first purchase of March, a delivery from Amazon: Where Shadows Dance by C.S. Harris


Erin Germain (Demiguise) | 83 comments Not supposed to be getting anything this month, since I wanted to let the wallet recover a little bit, but I couldn't help checking out the bargain bin at the supermarket the other night and found Third Wish by Robert Fulghum. I couldn't resist, although I'm not sure when I'll actually start reading it. I found one or two others in the bin that looked interesting, and am contemplating going back to get them.

I finally gave in and went to my closing Borders to pick up Change-up  Mystery at the World Series by John Feinstein and Tempest's Legacy (Jane True, #3) by Nicole Peeler for 30% off each. I figured with the way this store was emptying out so quickly, there wouldn't be anything left when they finally got to offering better deals like 40% or more. :-(


Christine | 16 comments I, too, went to my closing Borders and got Simply Suppers  Comfort Food You Can Get on the Table in No Time Flat by Jennifer Chandler I love cook books, although I need to actually start cooking more-I have good intentions. Yesterday I got Jane Eyre (Bantam Classics) by Charlotte Brontë and The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks at a not closing Borders haha. But The Lucky One was in the bargain books so I couldn't resist.
