I’ve never been one to have a spending problem. I don’t splurge-buy clothes, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, or even food, but when it comes to books… new, perfectly pristine books are my kryptonite. In fact, I was that kid who went to the mall with the intention of buying new clothes only to come home with books instead. Needless to say, my mom was a little annoyed about that. Haha! For that reason, though, I try to avoid bookstores to the best of my ability. Unfortunately, this method I’ve designed to stop myself from buying too many books no longer protects me as I have recently discovered BookOutlet.com, which sells brand new books for super, super cheap! Aka: Death for me. >.>
Even so, I held off for some time. I just browsed, made a wishlist, and went back to the numerous books sitting on my nightstand that I still need to read. I avoided the online store. That worked… until I got a coupon, which shot my efforts in the face. That being said, I stocked up my cart with books that were on my TBR and a few that weren’t, and ended up ordering 13, yes 13! books from Bookoulet for about $5 a book and they’re all BRAND NEW! *dies*
There you go! Thirteen books added to the three books I have left over from my October book haul. >.> Yeah, I know. I need to get reading! It’s for this reason that I won’t be having a book haul in December because I really need to read some of these (aka most of them) before I buy more. Plus, these should keep me busy for a while. Hee hee! But what do y’all think? Have you read any of theses? Good? Bad?
