I was able to pick up eight new books this week.
I received two books from OwlCrate. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee was the July OwlCrate book. The OwlCrate Jr was The Unicorn in the Barn by Jacqueline K Ogburn. If you’re not already subscribed, I would highly recommend checking them out.
I purchased two books from Book Depository. What I love about Book Depository is that I can purchase UK editions and I get free shipping. This time I bought the 20th Anniversary Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Hufflepuff edition) and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
I was able to visit a Half Price Books yesterday and picked up two books I had been looking for. Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson and Endsinger by Jay Kristoff. I’m pretty picky when buying used books, but both of these were in very good condition with no writing or marks.
My last purchase yesterday was from Barnes & Noble. I had a few 20% off coupons to use and found two books I wanted that were already marked down 20% and I saved an extra 10% with my membership card. I got two books for just over $25. Both books are by Victoria Aveyard. A signed first edition of Glass Sword and the b&n exclusive edition of King’s Cage.
No, I probably didn’t need to buy books since I have so many here to read. But I’m a book addict. I’ll be going to a book signing tomorrow night with Becky Albertalli and Angie Thomas. I already have their books, but I’m sure I will pick up a couple books while I’m at Anderson’s Bookshop.
