I’ve been trying to be good with my book-buying habit, telling myself to save up for my annual Birthday Book Binge in December. But December seems so far away, especially when it’s BOGO at my favorite thrift store!!
It all started when I found The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook, one that’s been on my wish list for a couple of years now. And hey, since it’s buy one get one free, I had to keep looking!
I know, I’m known for my hatred of chick-lit and my vows to avoid anything by Jane Austen. Yeah, well…….
One of my 2020 reading goals is to try out genres that I’ve disliked or avoided in the past. While I couldn’t get past page 5 of Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, I’ve heard Emma is much better so I figured what the hell, I’ll give it a shot. And as for The Devil Wears Prada? I remember liking the movie well enough, so the book is always better, right?! Of course, I’d had a few adult beverages while watching the movie so my memory of this one may be a bit skewed.
As for the others, Shreve and Coehlo have been on my to-read list for some time, and I can never pass up a Carl Hiaasen!!
The rest of my haul, truly a little bit of everything!! All told, I spent a little under $10. Not bad at all. 🙂
Have you bought some great books lately? Feel free to share, I love seeing what you’re reading! And until next time, Happy Reading!
