Booking Through Thursday: Windfall

Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.

Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)

This is just cruel! Because I did in fact get 1,000 dollars back. And instantly people were like "Think how many books you could buy." But I decided to put it into a Roth IRA, snooze I know.

BUT if I had this money to just do anything I wanted with? I'd probably buy almost everything off of my three amazon wishlists. I would also pre-order TONS and TONS of books. I'd be getting books in the mail left and right!
And that would be AWESOME!


  1. OH yes!!! me too! I want ALLt he books i can get!!

  2. Oh, getting books left & right is fun.
    As for the Roth... you'll get a lot of books in the future to read w/ the Roth $$$.

  3. You're so lucky! My parents got a lot back because of my student loan. I want some of that money! Haha, I guess them giving me a place to live and food to eat is all I can truly ask for. :P

  4. My husband and I bought a sectional sofa that we use to snuggle and read together on!

  5. :O Oh my Goddess Alea! You've just made me temptation to spend all my money on books even greater. Didn't know that was possible. T_T
    Must. Resist. Temptation.
    Getting books left and right would be soo much fun. :(

  6. You already get books left and right, don't you? :)

  7. Snooze? yes, maybe, but very smart. But just in case, maybe you should reward yourself with a new book this weekend. =)

  8. But where would you put them all? I mean—you'd have to buy a new house, wouldn't you?

  9. Reverie- It would definitely make every week special, little surprises in the mail!

    The Book Resort- I hope so :)

    Amee- Yeah, I think my Dad made sure to have them take out a little extra so I wouldn't owe anything!

    Holly- Awww that is so cute! Enjoy!

    Mandy- LOL! I think I would pre-order tons but I don't like paying for shipping so I tend to buy stuff in groups so I can get free shipping!

    Michelle- LOL yeah.... but a lot of what I buy are old crapped up library books. :P

    Lorin- I think that's very good advice.... I might have to do it!

    Beth Kephart- Yeah, you are right! It's true!
