Valorie FYI to everyone, I was a very bad girl and just spent $60 on books over at betterworldbooks.com - they are having a labor day sale, 4 used books for $10 and free shipping. I guess I got a little carried away!

Absolutely right. In fact, I just got back from there, again. I went on Saturday as well, but this time I brought in some old magazines and a couple of books to sell. I thought I'd only get a buck or two and was pleasantly surprised they gave me $10! So of course I had to go and spend some of it. :-) I picked up two more books,

One Bite With A Stranger (The Others, #6) by Christine Warren & Naked Once More by Elizabeth Peters , for four dollars. That brings me to a total of 15 new books so far this month.

Unapologetic_Bookaholic Bi-annual FOL Buck a Bag Sale Update

Hehe. Ok so I have worked at the Friends BS a year and have avoided 3 major Buck a bag sales. I went to this one only b/c I had an order on hold waiting for me at the BS. I am in a reading challenge to read books to movies. I choose all S.King books b/c I:

a] never read his books
b] know about all his books are movies

Here is my take:
Night's Kiss (My Night, #1) by Amanda Ashley Mystic River by Dennis Lehane Gone South by Robert R. McCammon Shadow Game (GhostWalkers, #1) by Christine Feehan Black Blood (The Last Vampire, #2) by Christopher Pike Chain Letter 2 The Ancient Evil by Christopher Pike The Lost Mind by Christopher Pike Hanging Time (April Woo Suspense Novels) by Leslie Glass The Presence by Heather Graham The Immortal by Christopher Pike The Dead Room (Harrison Investigation series) by Heather Graham The Ruins by Scott B. Smith The Green Mile The Complete Serial Novel by Stephen King Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King The Dead Zone by Stephen King Salem's Lot by Stephen King Carrie by Stephen King The Stand by Stephen King Needful Things by Stephen King Dreamcatcher by Stephen King 1000 Dreams Interpreted by Michael Powell Naughty or Nice by Eric Jerome Dickey The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger American Gods by Neil Gaiman Cujo by Stephen King

All for $4.00
