As you can see above, my trip to the thrift store was all too successful this last week. I walked out with 8 books for about $13, which is an amazing and horrible thing. I love thrifted books because they’re super cheap, but I hate thrift books because they’re super cheap. My shelves are filled to the max and I have piles of books lying around on the floor. So, at this point, I guess this new pile won’t be too noticeable, but I need to stop hoarding books or I’m going to end up turning into a dragon. Instead of gold, I will be guarding and sleeping on/in piles of books.
Also in book news this week. I’m super excited about a trip one of my closest friends and I are planning. I haven’t seen her since last October, since she is out in Oklahoma for Grad School and I am still in Wisconsin trying to make my writing dreams come to life, which definitely does not involve Grad School. Anyway, last year I flew out to visit, and boy was Oklahoma a culture shock; anyhow, this year we’re planning a trip to Orlando for a reunion at Harry Potter World! I am beyond excited. We’ve been talking about it for so long, but now we’re finally starting to do it. We just booked our hotel room, and I bought my flight tickets! This October cannot come quickly enough!
Well, I think that about sums up this last week in books for me pretty well. What has your book week been like? Anything cool to report? Read anything good? Let me know in the comments!
