I have bought more books in the last week than in the last ten years. And I'm worried it is becoming an addiction. In preparation for the arrival of The Grandparents, I cleaned our house from the top of the cheese-and-BBQ covered microwave we keep on top of our fridge, to the toybox bottom we haven't seen since two moves ago, and stumbled across a coupon for BookCloseouts.com. As mentioned a few posts ago, I've been reading the library's "Little House" series. When I saw how cheap their prices are, and realized the coupon expired that very day (kind of weird, huh?) I went nuts and got as many books in the series as they had available.
Then they started this $1 sale, and I went nuts again. Of course we need this book about Australia! Cultural awareness for $1!! And I want to buy The New International Webster's Pocket Medical and First Aid Dictionary of the English Language just to see how they fit the title on the cover. One dollar!!
There are coupons all over the place online. (Enter the coupon number ultimatecoupons-5 and password bookcloseouts.com to get $5 off an order of $35- that's five free books if you get them out of the promotion list!)
Ooh- I'm awful in bookstores. I'm like a kid in a candy store, while my kids are like... really bored.
I'm going to have to get some new-fangled filter for my computer now. Forget about porn, I'm in danger of bookstore exposure.
