A bookworms hard decisions

This morning I had to be up and out of the house bright and early to drop of Little Cat at the vets to have certain parts removed, if you know what I mean..Poor boy! Anyway, by a quarter past 9 in the morning, we had already dropped him off and had proceeded to wander a few thrift stores. I found a few cool cards, postcards and some random paper ephemera to use in swaps as well as a nice fat stack of books. Unfortunately, no matter how much cheaper they are in a thrift store vs a book store, if you buy enough it will cost a pretty little fortune and with little man racking up a bill with the vet, I had to make some cuts. I finally settled on 3 books; The secret life of bees, Snow Flower, and The Hunger Games. It wasn’t without much regret that I put back Water for Elephants, a book about Jules Verne, a book about happiness written by a monk and a couple of others I have forgotten about by now (Thankfully!). I’m mainly regretting putting down the Jules Verne book. And Water for Elephants. In fact, I’m kind of hoping they will still be there next time I’m there. Perhaps i’ll go in the morning, alone, with plenty of time for some serious browsing? A little birdy also made the mistake of telling me about a big book and houseplant sale one of the schools hosts in may to raise funds…Two of my favourite things to buy, being put on sale under the same roof for affordable prices! I’d best start saving up now! Oh the hardships of being a bookworm! 😛

      Thanks for the comment! 🙂 I don’t typically read reviews about books until I’ve either started or even completely finished a book..But i’ll be sure to check it out nonetheless 🙂
