This past week I went on two bargain book shopping trips and acquired a total of...one..two...three...fifteen books and two book jackets. It was a good week. The only appropriate thing for any respectable book blogger to do is a I'm-not-bragging-but-really-yes-I-am book haul.
The first trip was to a local bookstore that is closing up. I had been in this store a few times and usually it was pretty dead, so it's no surprise that it went out of business. When I was there this week it was the busiest I'd ever since it, no doubt the business had something to do with the inventory blowout sale. It made me a little sad inside to see that. I guess it is true what they say, online book orders and the bigger department stores are killing the independent book store. Although the closing of any bookstore is a somber day, I scored a couple of cheap books which made me pretty happy.
