I brought home a load of books. I had two Chapters gift cards worth a total of $100 dollars to spend. And spend I did. In fact, 50 over. I hope that will not bite me in the ass with my rather tight budget. But I got 7 books. Canadian prices are pretty ridiculous these days.
There were so many good books out there I Needed. Needed with intense desire. Visceral need. I got what I could. Then tore away before more beckoned to me.
A lot of them are new authors which are always a great exploration. You can find some great new series that way. The one I read through half way the moment I got home is awesome! I am quite enjoying the style and story. It is four stories in one. Even better. I get the whole series all at once!
Anyway, best gift ever for someone like me. No purses or shoes or makeup or designed clothes. Books! That is the way to my heart.
