Tasty Treats (8)

Hello everyone!

It’s Sunday (a kind of dreary, potentially going to rain Sunday) and I’m actually posting today! I rarely post on Sunday so it’s kind of exciting when I do! :)

I am officially on Spring Break (WHOOT!)  which is awesome because although I love my students and my school, I was in need of some time off. Spring Break affords me time to lounge, read, visit the library and spend time with my friends (and my cousin Audrey who is coming to visit!).

Friday was a teacher work day so we got to go home much earlier than we normally would, so with my extra free time I decided it was time to check out my local public library. I picked up a few audiobooks, but I also poked around the Friends of the Library Used Bookstore and found some fun treats! Now I don’t know about you but when I visit a new book store like Barnes & Noble I get a little crazy. I get a massive case of book lust. The problem is that I can’t AFFORD to BUY all of the books I want (which is ALL of them). I feel a lot like this little guy.

Book Lust

So close, yet so far.

It’s just not possible for me to buy every book I want! So when I find a deal like I did at the used bookstore I get so excited! I have to say that I purchased 6 books (3 paperback, 3 hardcover) for $16.oo.  YUP! I think that’s a pretty good steal for SIX books!

So, let’s see what I snagged:

The three paperbacks are:

Paperbacks

Halo by Alexandra Adornetto

Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han*

The three hardcovers (for only $3.50 each!):

hardcovers

Princess Academy by Shannon Hale*

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher*

Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy by Ally Carter*

I’m so proud of myself for finding these at such good prices and in such good condition! This does however, mean that I need to do some book shelf rearranging to make some room for these new additions…but hey! It’s Spring Break right?! I’ll have time for it!

What tasty treats have you acquired recently?

*= I’ve already read this one but who cares!

  1. I’ve been wanting to read The Summer I Turned Pretty for some time. I need to do that soon. Maybe this summer, actually. Thirteen Reasons Why was good. Enjoy your books! (:
