I need to stop! I'm out of control! It all started the Christmas of 1989 when I got the ENTIRE set of Babysitters Club Books 1-67 (I was 7 years old). I spent the next 3 months reading ALL of them! I would hide in my bathroom at night so my parents wouldn't know I was awake. This was the beginning of my serious book addiction!
Today, this love for books has turned into binge buying and spending tons of time browsing WHEREVER books are sold. The grocery store, the Drug Store, Christian Gift STore, ANYWHERE!! I even have a Barnes and Noble Memebership card that has paid for itself 4 times over. Here are some of my recent blunders:
For school, I had to read a book called One Child by Torey Hayden. I bought it....
It was SO good that I went back to Barnes and Noble and bought.......3 more!?
Have I read them? Yeah, NO, I haven't. Why did I buy 3??
A few summers ago I read Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs. AWESOME Book! You should SERIOUSLY read it! I loved it so much....do you see where this is going?
...that I bought 2 more by him and have yet to read them.
Oooh!! Oprah has James Frey on her show! I MUST have A Million Little Pieces!
And THANK YOU Barnes and Noble marketing exec for displaying Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris right next to it!
Started both. Finished neither.
My FAVORITE place to browse for books is definitely Target!
They have a their "Bookmarked Club" and it has AWESOME selections. But what I've been doing, is looking for the books there, and heading over to 1/2 Price Books WELLL.......
I did just that the other day and came out with these two awesome books!...
Both for awesomely low prices! But I COULDN'T stop there!
I'm OUT OF CONTROL! I'm telling you! I haven't finished ANY of them!?
When I went shopping for new work shoes, I strolled into Waldon Books for a peak...Hey! I saw red stickers! It was buy 3 get the 4th free! SLAM!
And look what I got for NOTHING!...
Shall I seriously continue??
After I sold my books back last semester I decided to treat myself to a fun book....or two. And I needed a book for the plane!
I got half-way through Pledged before I spotted this book with my mom when i was home....
It's awesome so far and I asure you i will finish it!!
So, book addiction runs on both sides of the family. My grandma gave me these to read while I was home....
And my mom gave me this one...
Now that I've been home for less then a week, I went out on another excursion. I needed a book for MW and me to read together... (ooooooooohhhh!! :))
ONE BOOK, HG! ONE BOOK!!!!!!
Store numero Uno...maybe this one'll work...
and cha-ching!! Gift with Purchase, baby!!
Store numero dos...why buy 1 when you can buy the ENTIRE SET!!!!?
And I saw this on my way to the register... HEY! He was on Oprah!?
PLEASE!! FORGET ABOUT ME!!! SAVE YOURSELVES!!
