Buying Books Without the Guilt!

Today my mom and I were out shopping for Christmas presents (and for ourselves!). It was a blast. We even went out of towna nd everything so that made it all the more exciting! PLUS, there was this great bargain book shop that I never knew about and they had an entire wall of $1.00 books! So, of course, I scanned through almost them all. Lots of older stuff, and tons that I had never heard of, but that made it more interesting.

I ended up with two books for a whopping $2.12!!!

Here's what I got...

"Countdown" by Michelle Maddox
"The Warrior" by Kinley MacGregor

I know nothing about them, but it looks like they will be fun and quick reads.

Anyone else heard of them? What did you think?

Anyone else find some good deals?


  1. The guy on the cover of The Warrior looks familiar...

  2. Matt...He looks like an actor or something. I can't put my finger on it.

  3. Hey Aubrie - forgive my absence - still in UK visiting. Just popping in. I love getting a bargain and when its books - well - bonus! The Warrior guy reminds me of a couple of actors but I don't think he's any of them. Isn't is great though how a face can lure you into the book? Thats happened to me a few times - well many times actually - the cover of a book is so important. Perhaps too important really. Shah. X

  4. Shah...Yeah, I just had an interesting discussion about how important covers were. I think for a lot of people, that is the first thing they look at. I know it's the first thing that gets me to pick up a book.

  5. "Judging a book by its cover" often has a negative connotation, but it is certainly an important facet in being drawn to a text.

  6. Aubrie...Yep! It's the first thing I look at, then I read the title, then the back, and maybe a bit of the text. Then, after I read the book, I look at the author and decide if I would ever read anything from them ever again. :)

  7. FYI!: I don't know why I put my name at the beginning there. The above message was for Matt or in general.
