Broke & Bookish Book Haul for 9/23 - 9/29


Lori's Book Haul

I acquired two books this week.  In a quest to do homemade Christmas presents this year, but to not churn out several versions of the same few projects, I bought The Crafter's Devotional:  365 Days of Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for Unlocking Your Creative Spirit by Barbara R. Call.  It has several projects in it that I can do.  Plus maybe it will help me unlock the right side of my brain.

I also purchased The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling.  I talked Zach into foregoing his afternoon nap to go pick it up with me.  I thought I'd have to go to all of the places to get books in this town.  Alas, no.  The first place we went had it.  I can't wait to read it!
