Once again I hit up the Borders closing sale. The selection is starting to thin out, but if you're not completely picky about what you want great deals are easy to find. I have been completely taking advantage and stocking up, and I've told myself once the store if officially closed I'm on a book buying ban, but untill then...
William and Kate by Christopher Andersen
I've been wanting to find a good Will & Kate book for a while now. This one of the most "novel-y" one I found, plus it still has cute color pictures instead.
It's a Book by Lane Smith
I don't normally, fine never would be the better description, buy children's books. But I've had my eye on this one for a while now. It's written by one of my favorite childhood authors (he worked on both The Stinky Cheese Man and Math Curse along with Jon Scieszka for those in the now.) And in my opinion this book pretty much illustrates the reason for Borders' fail. To quote the back cover, "Can it text? Blog? Scroll? Wi-Fi? Tweet? No... it's a book."
The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman
I picked this book up on a whim, and reall it's $2.50 price. (50% off the clearance price) I think it looks like a cute book to read around holiday time. Plus it has cookie recipes inside. What I find interesting, is that there'a a Target sticker on the cover. I'm not quite sure how a book from Target is now at Borders, but if anyone has some insight of the book industry to explain this I'd love to hear!
Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad
I've been wanting to read the sequal to L.A. Candy for a while now, and at $2.00 it's well worth the price.
Mrs. Astor Regrets by Meryl Gordon
This is another one that I might not have normally picked up, but at the price, it's more than worth it. It's a biography of Brooke Astor, who I have read about in the news, but besides that know little about.
Borrowed from a Friend
Pretty in Plaid by Jen Lancaster
I really enjoyed Jen Lancster's first three memiors, and I'm excited to finally read this one. It's been about a year since I last read her, but I'm expecting this to be another laugh-out-loud adventures.
So that's it for me this week! What do you have in your mailbox today?
