Janice (jamasc) | 49982 comments This thread could also be called, "My Credit Card Was Feeling Lonely". What treasures have you scored?


message 2: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments I grabbed the Audible daily deal yesterday, Midnight.


message 3: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49982 comments I debated on that one Kristie. I hope you enjoy it. :)


message 4: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments I debated too, Janice. I don’t think the $4.95 deals are much of a deal and I wasn’t 100% on wanting the book, but I’ve liked his books in the past.

Saar The Book owl | 1819 comments I've bought:
The Travelling Cat Chronicles. I was supposed to buy another book, but then I saw this one. I have a thing for Japanese writers and a soft spot for cats, so I think this will be a match. Besides that, it has a beautiful cover and the story is really good. (reading it from the cover)

The Fourth Apprentice. I have the other 3 series and this is the first book of the 4the serie. I've read that Erin Hunter is writing the 6th series, but I'm buying them in the Dutch translation, so it will take a while to complete them. The translation of the next 3 books of the 4th series will be this year.

As if my credit card is ever lonely. :)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15384 comments Some nice ebook deals today! I got:

Salt Houses
The Leavers
The House at the Edge of Night


message 9: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments I really want to read The Leavers too. I just went to check and it's on sale here too! Got it! :)


message 10: by Roz (new)

Roz | 3721 comments I bought Oil and Marble: A Novel of Leonardo and Michelangelo, a leftover from the 2017 Yearlong.


message 11: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments I just picked up Practical Magic on sale on Kindle. I read The Rules of Magic recently and really enjoyed it.


message 12: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49982 comments Thanks for mentioning that Kristie. It's been on my wishlist for a while.


message 16: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15384 comments I was meeting with someone today in the city centre, but she was 30 minutes late. So I went to the nearby bookshop, and came out with The Good People.

I have many books on my wishlist that are only available in hardcover when I add them, and then often I sort of forget about them. It's always a nice surprise when I go into a bookshop, recognize a title and it's a paperback!


message 17: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments That one looks good, Peggy. I look forward to seeing what you think of it. I still have Burial Rites from her to read.

I just picked up The Almost Sisters on a Kindle deal.


message 18: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments I feel the need to wander a bookstore coming on. That's going to have to happen soon.


message 19: by Mikaleigh (new)

Mikaleigh Barras | 95 comments I bought three books today, Enchanted August Enchanted August by Brenda Bowen which I got for £1.25, perfect for August title and two books from WHSmiths, they had an offer on buy one get one half price, so I got Caraval Caraval (Caraval, #1) by Stephanie Garber and Good Me, Bad Me Good Me, Bad Me by Ali Land . Then when I got home I realised I had already bought Good Me, Bad Me on Kindle 😅 so I am hoping I can take my paperback copy back and exchange it tomorrow.


message 20: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15384 comments Lol Mikaleigh, I think I once bought a book 3 times! Twice as an ebook and once as a paperback at a book fair. I ended up reading the paperback ;-)


message 21: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15384 comments @Kristie: the main reason I bought it is because I loved Burial Rites. If this new one was her first book I'm not sure I would have bought it. The blurb doesn't wow me.

Lol I'm glad I'm not the only one lol. I once had three copies of the first Harry Potter book. One was my original copy very well read so I bought another at a car boot sale and then my mum had got me the same one as well.


message 23: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments I've double bought books several times, Mikaleigh. I usually end up donating one to the library. I really need to keep better track of what I already own.

I hope you end up loving it as much as Burial Rites!

Yeap, been there, done that


Saar The Book owl | 1819 comments I've bought The Labyrinth of the Spirits. The 4th and last part in the series.

Margo | 10023 comments Woohoo - live book club for next month is La Belle Sauvage

I've been looking for an excuse to buy that one ;-)

Is that a type of cabbage?


message 29: by Margo (new)

Margo | 10023 comments haha yes - a very beautiful cabbage that you're not allowed to eat lol


message 30: by Margo (new)

Margo | 10023 comments Oh, are you thinking of Savoy?

It's pretty blue too, (the cover).


message 33: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20272 comments I bought a couple of books by Australian authors for a challenge I am doing in the Aussie Readers group. They are both first-in-series. in the Science Fiction genre. Hero and Seeing Red. I also bought the last three books in the Akasha series for my Zodiac Challenge. Air, Fire, Earth. I already owned the first one, Water. They have very pretty covers.


message 34: by Margo (new)

Margo | 10023 comments That series sounds like it was designed for our challenge Cherie ;-)

I'm looking forward on your thoughts about the book. It's on my TBR - list too.


message 36: by Rusalka, Moderator (new)

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17557 comments Interesting, Cherie. Never heard of those books or authors before. Let us know what you think!


message 37: by Rusalka, Moderator (new)

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17557 comments I bought
Miguel Street
The Thing Around Your Neck and
Soul Music

I have one more book coming, and then I am not allowed to buy anything for at least 6 months.


message 38: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments 6 months! Good luck, Rusalka. I don’t know if I could do it.


message 39: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49982 comments I can barely make 1 month, let alone 6.


message 40: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 1304 comments I have a copy of Bleak House on the way. A friend recommended it to me, but I have to admit that I'm a bit intimidated by a classic book weighing in at over 1,000 pages.


message 41: by Margo (new)

Margo | 10023 comments I could do 6 months - of course that wouldn't include pre-orders, bargins, deals, book club books, group reads, challenge books, etc etc


message 42: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 14188 comments lol, Margo!


message 43: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49982 comments LOL! Sounds like my kind of book buying abstinence.


message 44: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15384 comments Hahaha Margo!

I got At the Water's Edge. It was in a daily deal email and I knew it was on my wishlist. After buying I read some reviews and now I wonder if it was a wise buy ;-)

I will let you know. ;0)


message 47: by Margo (new)

Margo | 10023 comments I picked up I Found You on audible uk. £1.99 it is the daily deal.


message 48: by Rusalka, Moderator (new)

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17557 comments Lol I love you guys!!!
I may crack and sell some to my book dealer for credit. But I had a bit of a splurge the past month.


message 49: by Margo (new)

Margo | 10023 comments So happy with the audible uk daily deal today - All These Worlds. That's a series I need to get back to!


message 50: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49982 comments I bought The Chalk Man for my 2018 new release challenge.

I had $8.00 left on my coupon with Audible. Since I got the coupon, the daily deals have not been all that exciting. Time is running out, so I decided to pick up the wispersync deals on 4 Kindle books I'd purchased last summer:
In the Blood
To the Grave
The Last Queen of England
The Lost Empress

These four aren't exactly new purchases since I already owned the Kindle editions.
