Sheri | 11 comments I had a fun time today at B&N and you all are the only ones that would probably understand it...LOL. I had a $50 free certificate from a site where I earn points and I have a B&N Membership Card. So...I went and got 5 new books but only paid $7. What cheap fun I had today...LOL.

Anyone else have fun like this recently???

I got:
Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Bauby
The Candy Girl by Diablo Cody
The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls (I already read this book and loved it but had borrowed it originally so I got one for my collection)

Charity (charityross) Yes, Sheri, I had a little book buying fun recently...when don't I? :-)

I had received a $40 gift card to Half Price Books in my stocking over Christmas so I went on a little spree last week. I got:

Little Men by Louisa May Alcott
Emma by Jane Austen
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe
A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writing by
Charles Dickens
Tom Jones by Henry Fielding
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison
Sula by Toni Morrison
I Am No One You Know: Stories by Joyce Carol Oates

So...10 books in new or like new condition...none with broken spines or writing in them of any kind...a few hardback Modern Library editions...and I still have about $0.71 left on my gift card. Now that is what I call a good book day!
