Book Buying January 6, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michelle @ 1:00 am

I did lots of book buying today.  I'll start with the first purchases because the first outing was pleasant and inexpensive.  I bought all of these books for $5 at my library.

I was hoping to score some more kid's lit like last month, but it was pretty picked through already (got to get there at 9 and beat those little kids).  But I did hit the short story jackpot.

My second outing was painful and expensive.  I bought 5 books for 3 classes (still have one more class to buy for) and spent $390.  But…it is my last semester so that helps ease the financial sting a little bit.

In other news, Ben left this morning.  :(  We celebrated our anniversary a few days early last night and it was a lot of fun.  We saw Juno – fantastic movie!  Everyone should go see it.  I'll see Ben again in 5 weeks when he comes here for a long weekend.

Also, I'm reading Middlesex right now and really enjoying it.  It is so interesting to see Detroit in its better days rather than the way I see it now.  The story is fascinating and the writing is wonderful.
