It's a good thing I have a job.
So the haul so far. (I say so far because I'm going to be buying more in the near future... I can't help myself) I've linked the titles to their goodreads page.
|Excuse my cat's tail in this one... he wouldn't budge.|
The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde
Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor(bargain at £4.99)
Specials by Scott Westerfeld
Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire
Extras by Scott Westerfeld (all 3 on offer, 3 for £5)
Tuck by Stephen R Lawhead (my bargain of the day at 99p!!!! =D)
The Works had a ton of books on sale or on offer so the book geek in me just had a field day. Tuck, Extras, Specials, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Mirror Mirror and a book on ghosts all came up to £12. If all that had been in Waterstones it would have probably cost me around £30 or more. So while I felt bad about going on such a spending spree I felt a little better that my buys were from the Primark of book shops.
I do like to pop into The Works or any book stall at the city market and car boot sales. The stalls are all second hand but when you can buy a book for £1.50 that's costing £7.99 at Waterstones it's worth it, especially if you're on a budget or, like me, trying to be good with your spending. I've found books that have recently come out at a bargain price of £1.50 or come away with 5 to 10 books that all come up to about a fiver in total.
So next time you're at a car boot sale or market or if there's a charity book store nearby, pop in and give it a go. You never know what you could find!
But I really have to be good after this haul. I must be good...
