Last week...I think...(maybe the week before, but it doesn't really matter) I went to Goodwill and found three books.
Murder Must Advertise ~Dorothy Sayers
Let Me Be A Woman ~Elizabeth Elliot
The Hobbit ~Tolkien
I already have a really cool copy of The Hobbit....this one I believe (lovely green cover and case!), but this one I found was pretty nice too and a very good price so I picked it up. Colin can have it maybe, or if I want to read it but don't want to carry around the super-nice copy I can read this one.
Then on Wednesday this week I went to the used book store, Edward McKay Books and More...I hadn't been there before and it was really cool! Anyway, I found three nice hardcover classics, and two CDs that I'd been wanting for a while:
The House of the Seven Gables ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, A Tale of Two Cities ~Dickens, Jane Eyre ~Bronte, and Paul Simon and CCR CDs.
And finally, I used the points from using this search engine and got two $10 Barnes and Noble gift certificates and with that got myself two books and a calendar. (I always end up getting a calendar so late that I hardly see the January page...)
A nice hardcover copy of Persuasion ~Jane Austen, Commentary on Romans ~Martin Luther (that should be good!), and a Winnie-the-Pooh mini calendar, because I'm all grown-up and sophisticated like that... ;)
I also on two different Goodwill trips found myself two black skirts...one a nice tailored knee-length wool skirt (something I've been wanting for a while), and the other one a long, swishy, black skirt that's five sizes too big for me, but that I'm going to do a little alteration on to make it work. It already had an elastic waist, so it shouldn't be too hard to get it to fit...although I do need to make it shorter too. But yay for cheap skirts from Goodwill, even if they do require sewing! :D
And certainly yay for inexpensive hardcover books!!! :) *grins happily*
And I'm going to a sleepover tonight, so that should be a nice end to the week...and make up for a stressful day at work yesterday.
