Can we say "addicted?"

OK, in the last 2 months I have been a very bad girl! lol! Seriously, I don't even know how much money I spent on books here lately. It would be easier for me to just list all the books I've bought. I can't help it! Our used book store is amazing!!!!

Sometimes I just can't fight that crazy all-consuming impulse to buy books! If I find a good deal on a book I've heard about and planned on reading anyway... SOLD! A quote I remember reading from my favorite series ever, Fever - go figure, said that "If I can find something for cheaper than what I would have paid for it at Walmart, then I get to have it!" What a wonderful justification system!! lol!

Well here is my list of damage... And as much as I say in my mind "No More!", I'm sure I will be adding to it all too soon!!

I'm right there with you, since I bought my awesome bookshelf I have been super obsessed with buying books. I have bought probably close to the same amount as you (maybe more, who knows) although I really don't want to find out an exact number, Haha. I will just remain happily unaware!

I don't think I'm completely at fault here either..I am choosing to share the blame! I will blame amazon, Hastings and the used book store less than a block from my house for having good deals. But most of all I blame borders for going out of business! Then again I should be thanking all of these places for helping me build what I now call my library for the fraction of the price!!

Ok I'm done rambling now :-)

lol!! I know what you mean! I blame hastings, ebay and our local bookstore too!! I am a sucker for a good deal. I say, if i can find it cheaper than what I would buy it for at walmart, then I can have it! lol! (I think Mac from Fever said that and it stuck with me as my justification for everything! lol)

LRAtRandom said...

That's a great saying, I may have to borrow it once in a while!

Amber said...

Yeah I had to add that to the original post! lol!

I live out in the middle of nowhere...our closest library is more than 1/2 an hour away and it's not a very good library...So, I, too am addicted to buying books online or at Walmart whenever we make it to the big city! :) Have any of you tried You can find really good deals on there!

Amber said...

Thanks for the heads up! I will definitely have to try that site out! I have been pretty loyal to They have amazing deals and free shipping, but I am always open to new sites with great prices!! Thanks for sharing!!
