As my TBR list goes on, I still can't help my impulses on buying more books!

My recent one is:

Free For All: Oddballs Geeks and Gangstas in the Public Library

Anyone else wanna share?

Does that include books that you get swapped with others and get given for nowt?


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

I hear you. I can't avoid a) stopping at bookstores and b) buying at least one book. I try to go for used or bargains, though. I got a bargain on an Alice Munro hardcover this weekend at B.Dalton.

The View from Castle Rock Stories by Alice Munro

Jen (nekokitty) | 339 comments I recently bought two Pipi Longstocking books... partly for me and partly for my kids. Awe, the memories!

It's not a recent purchase, but I want to get Coraline.

I've been so good and have been avoiding all of the bookstore (well, avoiding the online Sony ebook store is impossible) - but it's only going to mean hard decisions when I break down and hit up the bookstores. I may just have to stop by some next weekend, assuming I have healthy kids! :)

I just got four free boxes of books from Craigslist but I only kept one. Most were law books and text/guides I did get Hemingway though! I was going to buy it but I got it!

I am going to pick up 11 more free boxes later tonight (rather my husband is) and then I may just calm it down a little since I have no room. I am waiting for my uncle and husband to custom make me one but probably not until after the holidays.

OK so I only kept 4 of the 11 boxes. So I got 130 books off of Cragslist thus far.

In the 11 boxes I got a lot of classics and first editions so...??? I am very happy and am more happy knowing that I didn't have to apy for them!


message 45: by Jen (new)

Jen (nekokitty) | 339 comments Nice! What will you do with the other boxes?
