Thrifty Book Finds
Saturday shopping spree... alliteration at it's finest. Actually, I did some early Christmas shopping, and purchased myself a few goodies for being such a smart cookie. Before heading out the door, and before my arms were loaded with shopping bags, I created a pile of old books that I was itching to get rid of. I started my afternoon with a trip to Goodwill and picked up book #1: If We Ever Break Up, This is My Book by Jason Logan. Logan's title is a collection of illustrations of the trials and tribulations of dealing with a breakup. It's absolutely hilarious (don't judge me), and was reasonably priced ($1.50) for a coffee table book.
My second stop was a used book store outside of Atlanta. I was able to swap four books for a trade-in-credit of 12 dollars! Needless to say, I picked up Dave Eggers A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, after reoccurring raves from acquaintances. I'm not quite sure what this title is about, but I'm excited to find out. Plus, for the $7.49 cents that I didn't have to pay, it's worth a risk. AND I still have $4.51 left on credit!
Grand total spent on TWO books: 1 dollar and 50 cents. I'll take it. :)
