Paula's Book Haul
For Christmas, my parent's friends gave me a Barnes & Noble gift card. SO that night I got onto the marketplace and ordered lots of used books. So far only two have gotten here. I am anxiously awaiting them all.
1. Everything Matters! by Ron Currie Jr.
2. Animals by Don LePan
3. The Light by DJ MacHale
4. The Clockwork Man by William Jablonsky
5. How to Buy A Love of Reading by Tanya Egan Gibson
All of these books have been on my to-read list for quite sometime. So I am excited to get a chance to finally read them :D
Julia's Book Haul
Well. There is definitely back story to this haul. I bought my sister a gift card for Christmas to Half-Priced Books with the intent of going with her to spend it. Saturday, we walk in the story by my house and I see a small sign that says the store is closing for good the next day (!) Thus they were having a $1 special on all paper backs. Well, I went a little crazy with the romance selection of TBR... this was the result. (I do have to mention that these were books for my sister (16), cousin (3) and me (28). I have bought so many other books that I haven't listed in the haul... maybe some other time.
