In the spirit of full disclosure, I must confess to you fellow readers- almost IMMEDIATELY after posting my March Book Haul and announcing that I NEED.TO.STOP! with all the book buying… my sister in law called to talk about her Easter visit and we made a plan to check out my local used book store, Books & Co.
(Not my photo)
We decided it was our duty to go and rescue books that have already been abandoned once, poor things, and give them nice forever homes.
I ended up buying four books there:
- Wires and Nerves by Marissa Meyer
- The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, by Jeanne Birdsall
- The Titan’s Curse, by Rick Riordan
- Incantation, by Alice Hoffman
So, yes, while I had said I was putting myself on a book buying ban… I never said when I would start it. This was technically still March (it was the 31st) and it just makes sense to finish off the month with a bang before starting fresh in April. Right? Right.
From there we went to Barnes and Noble and I didn’t buy anything. I kept to caressing the books and swooning and whispering promises to return for them someday. Oh that was hard!
Wish me luck sticking to my guns in April.
I will not buy books.I will not buy books.I will not buy books……
