Ok, so this afternoon I had to do some work on the computer for my classes and just thought I’d go have some fun playing on amazon.com. I added all these books to my cart, trying to find the lowest price in combo with the lowest shipping rate. Of course, right now, super saver shipping is free on orders over $25, so this is quite a feat. Sometimes it pays to go with the free shipping; sometimes it’s cheaper to go for the low rate book and pay the shipping. So I was hopping along to see what the cost would be and went to click “Update” and accidentally clicked “Purchase.” Thank goodness I had weeded through the cart significantly. I knew I should not have gone to Barnes & Noble last night and gotten booklust. I really should not be spending money on books, but I am so so so excited I made such a mistake. Freudian slip, I’m sure. Oh well. Since I’m broke, I need reading material. 🙂
So what’s on the list? Thanks to the reviews and recommendations of bookgirl’s nightstand, A Guy’s Moleskine Notebook, and Dolce Belleza, I had quite a few good recommendations. Thankfully, most of the books were $6 and less. Please save the lecture on buying from big, bad corporate Amazon. A. There are no indie booksellers in southeast Texas and B. I can’t afford full-price books right now. C. I will get a library membership as soon as I have time to wait in line at the DMV and get my address changed. Without further ado…
