This Week In Books Or *SHAME* Now I've Really Done It!

Er... yeah, bought some books as you can see!

Monday: nothing

Tuesday: According to my sister I didn't get anything and then hiding on the stairs I found two books from bookmooch! How It's Done and Pug Hill!

Wednesday: Holidays on Ice and The Smart One and the Pretty One came in the mail. Thanks Miriam!

Thursday: Popped over to the library and hit the jackpot! They had a whole cart of "new" paperbacks. No idea where they came from but there was some good stuff! I rode home on the overflowing 15+ extra people bus with two bags of books!

I got (gonna do a list!):
Shopaholic Ties the Knot
All About Vee
On Beauty
English As A Second Language
Going Home
The Hindi Bindi Club
If You Could See Me Now
The Autobiography of Vivian

Friday: nothing

Saturday: Before I hit the jackpot at the library me and my sister had decided to go to two of our favorite used bookstores this weekend. We went anyways, i had coupons!

At Half Price Books I picked up:
Lipstick Jihad
Inner Circle
Flash Fiction Forward
Secrets of My Hollywood Life: On Location
The Truth About Forever
The Cinderella Pact
The Late Bloomer's Revolution
Sheer Abandon
Andy Warhol: Fashion
(most of these were under 4 dollars, how do you say no!)

At the other used bookstore:
Family Sold Separately
This Year's Model
Tales From the Teachers' Lounge

So that was embarrassing... what did you get/buy/find this week?


  1. Well, the good news is you made me feel like I restrained myself in the book acquiring department:)

    -The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread(amazon gift cert)
    -Sky Burial (amazon gift cert)
    -True Story of the Kelly Gang(used book store)
    -Fifth Business (used book store)
    -The Night Country (library)

  2. I love reading your book stashes for the week!!!

    You are sooooo lucky! Our used bookstores are just full of Harlequin romances!

    I am soo jealous - Tales from the Teachers lounge sounds really great!!!
    Also, sounds like you got some good YA stuff.

    When I was in Vermont last week, I picked up two 2008 YA chick lits for $1.00 each!!!!

  3. WOW, that's a lot. I only just got Prep today, nothing else this week.

  4. Wow, good for you :-) I got Holidays on Ice as well, and The White Tiger, and a cookbook. :)

  7. Wow! You had a crazy week.

    I hit a book sale at my college held by one of the honor societies on Wednesday and got four books (for 2 dollars): If Only They Could Talk by James Herriot, The Fiancee and Other Stories by Anton Chekhov, The Optimist's Daughter by Eudora Welty, and Can You Forgive Her? by Anthony Trollope.

    I also got Identical by Ellen Hopkins from Pulse It on Thursday.

  8. You have totally outdone me in books this week! I think I acquired about 5 or 6.

  9. That is a fantastic stack!! I've actually been pretty good so far this month, which is good, since I have to atone for book buying binges the past few months.

  10. Wow, many books, eh Alea! I am very jealous. You got some nice stuff in there - are we gonna see those reviews sometime??


  11. Well, you know that my pile is even more shameful this week....

    I would totally love to get my hands on All About Vee and Family Sold Separately though.

    I've wanted to read "The Late Bloomer's Revolution" for a long time, just can't seem to make the time available.

  13. raidergirl3- Haha! I'm glad! Looks like you were getting some good buys in though! I heart Amazon gift certificates!

    tina- Thank you! Yeah the closest used book store is full of romances too but I'll go in every once in a while and find something good! I need to go about 20-30 minutes to the really good store! What 2008 YA Chick Lit did you get???

    Kelsey- I hope you enjoy Prep!!

    Marie- Ahhh I'm so excited about Holidays on Ice. I read the original version several years ago so I'm excited about the new stories!

    bermudaonion- It definitely was!

    veens- Aww thanks! My sister actually didn't know they came, I think my mom put them there. I'm waiting for the day when she hides them though!

    amee- I miss college sales!!! What is Pulse It? I'll have to look into that!

    alabama book worm- 5 or 6 is still a lot, almost a book for everyday of the week! I'm hoping my number will be closer to that this week, we will see!

    fyrefly- LOL! I atone for about 2-3 days that's usually all i can take before falling off the wagon!

    naida- Thank you! You too!

    steph- LOL! Some sooner than others but that's definitely the goal!!

    lenore- Every place I went book hunting this week I found some really exciting things! I'm crossing my fingers for about 1 awesome book at the library this thursday! I loved your book fair post!
