Do you guys remember Book Fairs? I still remember bringing these flyers home from school, pouring over them and wanting ALL THE BOOKS when I was a kid. Books and comics and kitten posters.
I kind of felt the same way tonight. My awesome mother-in-law sent me an Amazon Gift Card for my birthday, and tonight I finally spent it getting a whole bunch of used books. I love getting used books on Amazon because they’re cheaper than brand new books, it makes the Earth happy, and come on… who really needs a brand new book anyway? As long as they’ve still got all the words in them, they still work, right?
Here are the books I ordered tonight:
Disclosure: clicking the links above and buying books or anything else on Amazon will put a few cents in my Amazon account…which I will likely spend later, on more books.
There were a lot more that I wanted, but I figured this was a pretty good birthday haul. Looking forward to reading Palahniuk’s new one (as well as two others that I’ve never read, though these three will make my collection nearly complete.) and re-reading Murakami’s Kafka on the Shore, which I read a few years back at a friend’s recommendation and loved. I’ve never read Vonnegut and always meant to, so I’m starting with these two. I’m pretty sure I read Dan Ariely’s other book, and have been dying to get my hands on the Introvert book for a while now.
What are your favorite books? What have you read lately?
