message 23: by Alondra (new)

Alondra | 3965 comments I have bought at least 25 books from UBSs within the past 3 weeks. Many are not on my TBR; which is a shame; but they were books I was interested in. There are entirely too many to list.

I do remember picking up the Thirst No. 1: The Last Vampire, Black Dice, and Red Dice series, and a few more horror writers.

I have also downloaded at least 15 freebies from Amazon. Its free sooooo....

Veronica (VeraJ121) | 2618 comments I went to B&N during lunch last week and purchased Atlas Shrugged. For my e-reader, I purchased The Great Gatsby, Fifty Shades Freed, and Fall of Giants

Alondra I hope you enjoy Thirst, that is by far, my favorite Vampire series. He did an incredible job with it.

i have heard that quite a bit with this series, and looked at my books again, and am missing #2. So back to The Book Rack for it. I love that store; nice selection and little chairs to hover around in. plus they hold books for you.. :)

also picked up a John LeCarre book called The Russia House; The Last Vampire, which looked intersting, considering whitley strieber writes about alien abductions and stuff. :O

message 30: by Kit★ (new)

Kit★ (xkittyxlzt) | 794 comments I had an itch to do a quick Goodwill book hunt this afternoon... must've picked the wrong Goodwill, or the wrong day I guess, because the shelves were half bare, when usually they're overflowing. But I did find Un Lun Dun and Mistress of the Art of Death, both of which had been on my to-ponder list, so it wasn't a total fail. :)

Janie Johnson | 13471 comments Mod
I never even thought about looking for book at goodwill. Hmmm? Maybe I should check it out. I have just been spoiled with our UBS I guess.


message 32: by Kit★ (new)

Kit★ (xkittyxlzt) | 794 comments Lol Goodwill is my UBS. We don't have any other bookstores around here, used or new (unless you buy a new book at Wal-Mart or the dollar store), so the Goodwills are my hunting grounds. There's a couple of 'em all within a 15-20 minute drive, so I switch 'em up. I've found so many good things there :)


message 33: by Janie, Group Owner & Book Addict (new)

Janie Johnson | 13471 comments Mod
That's awesome Kit! I will have to look for books the next time we go in there.

I really liked TWTTK a lot, too, Chuck. I'm glad you did, as well. And that's awesome that yours has an excerpt from Doctor Sleep!

Goodwill prices are anywhere from 50c per hardback, up to as much as 1.99. LA had 99c per hardback, and 39c per paperback!! i cleaned house when i was there... :D

hit goodwill often... nothing like an armful of books.

Thanks Tracy. He just said to me "Your books will be here in about a week" I was like what books, and then he told me. So it is pretty exciting!

Most of the ones I go to are from 50cents to $1 for a paperback and $1-$2 for a hardback, but the one I go to that's in a college town has higher prices. Every book is priced individually, from $1-$5, whether hard or paperback. A lot depends on what books are popular at the moment, or continually popular, like Stephen Kings and Twilight and the other YA vampire series, and James Patterson, etc, those ones are always higher priced. That's the one I chose to go to the other day, I usually find lots of good stuff there, but the prices aren't as good as at the other few I go to. :)

Veronica (VeraJ121) | 2618 comments I've read most of his books. I usually would read them as soon as they come out. But I stopped after Dreamcatchers. I wasn't happy with his stories.


message 47: by Alondra (new)

Alondra | 3965 comments Bought Night Shivers; Ready Player One; The Talented Mr. Ripley; Mistress of the Art of Death and 30 Days of Night, Vol. 1; all from Amazon. I am so excited. Nothing like a box waiting for you after a hard day at work :D
