Um, I went a little crazy this week, but I actually only spent around $25, so all in all, I've done worse.
I ordered 5 books from Better World Books, which is my absolute way to buy, other than my library book sales. They are always so reasonably priced, shipping is free, and part of the proceeds support literacy campaigns around the world. What's better than a feel-good splurge? I got:
The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
Witch Child by Celia Rees
Big Fish by Daniel Wallace
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
and Teh Book of Dead Days by Marcus Sedgwick
In other venues, I got:
The Way of All Flesh by Samuel Butler
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (I already have this -- two, in fact -- but I loved the binding)
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (same as P&P -- couldn't resist)
Anne's House of Dreams by L. M. Montgomery
Anne of Ingleside by L. M. Montgomery
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson
A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar
Hungry Hill by Daphne du Maurier
The Fairytale Detectives: The Sisters Grimm #1
Here they are all on my wrinkly pink sheet. =D
Since I now have 3 copies of both P&P and Little Women, I may be giving a copy of each away at some point (if I don't bookmooch/PBS them). Maybe I'll have a Classics month. Hmm...
