In My Bag (32)

In My Bag is my version of the weekly meme, In My Mailbox. IMM was started by Kristi over at The Story Siren, and it explores the contents of my mailbox or shopping bag on a weekly basis.

I finally got around to using my BN giftcards from Christmas, and I was able to get a few titles I've been looking forward to reading along with some favorites that have been missing from my personal shelves.

This past Thursday, Friday, Saturday was the LSU Friends of the Library sale which is one of the highlights of my year. It's huge - like, it's an actual barn full of books. Heaven! My mom and I were a little bummed that we weren't able to get there until the last day, but just after arriving they announced everything was 1/2 off. So, we made off like bandits and had a lot of fun browsing the shelves.

Overall, it was a fantastic week for books!
Thanks Grandma, Aunt Sandi and Britt for the giftcards! As you can see, I put them to good use. It feels good to be filling up my shelves :)
My mom wouldn't let me pay for my loot at the book sale (moms are awesome), but she only paid $19.25 for $212.66 worth of books. Score!

What'd you guys get this week?


  1. Nice! I'm so jealous of that book sale.... My library just has a room or two of books, not a barn! Haha! It looks like you made off with some great books!

    Here's my mailbox.

    Have a great week!
