I Caved...(A Bookish Haul)

I swear that I always have the best intentions when it comes to book buying bans but then something happens and my plans go awry.  This time I feel compelled to tell you that it wasn't my fault.  We went school shopping for the kids in a city that we don't usually go to that has another branch of my favorite used bookstore.  And while I was able to resist going into Barnes and Noble without bringing anything home, the temptation was too great when I walked into the used bookstore.  It is always fun to see what different books they have and I'm always looking to add to my collection of vintage mysteries.  Here are the books that I managed to bring home with me:

Whee!  I love me some old vintage covers like The Wall has!  I also brought home another book with an equally fabulous cover but soon found out that I already had it on my shelves.  Ugh!  This is the exact reason that I put myself on a book buying ban in the first place.  LOL!  I obviously have too many books if I'm buying duplicates without realizing it.  I'm super excited about G is for Gumshoe though because I was just whining in my last book haul post that my used bookstore didn't have it.  Now I shall continue on with my reading of the Alphabet mystery series! 

There you have it folks!  I am weak with no self control when it comes to books :)  I'm restarting my book buying ban although I'm not sure how long it will last with my birthday coming up next month.  I AM planning on getting a new Kindle but until then I'm NOT buying any more books.  For least I think.  What books have you bought lately???


  1. Hmmm mmmm, I belive you, NOT :-)

    I love how when we go off the ban we don't buy 1 or 2 but always a few, lol

    Enjoy them all.

  2. It's hard to keep track when you have so many books! Enjoy your new goodies, guilt free!

  3. Ha! Yea, I always break book bans too. I definitely do not ever remember going into Barnes and Noble and coming out empty handed.
    Happy reading! I just bought Fifty Shades (again because I lent my copy out and never got it back). I've been wanting to read the whole series. As if I need another book to read! lol

  4. Lol. Isn't it funny how we can always manage to blame our book buying on someone or something else. I've been bad lately picking up audiobooks. I must put a ban on myself!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
