In My Mailbox (6)

I took a week off last week for the Oscars, but this week I'm back with The Story Siren's In My Mailbox. This week was another good week for books. I wasn't expecting to have the books but sometime life works in funny ways.

First a friend lent me a copy of Jennifer Weiner's The Guy Not Taken. I do enjoy Jennifer Weiner's books, but the fact that it's a collection of short stories had keep me from picking it up previously.

Then I went with a friend to Goodwill. I know a lot of people are a big fan, but I'm not a big fan of shopping in general, so I can't say I've spent a lot of time here. But once inside I had to check out the books. Five books for $0.99? Sounds like a good deal to me! I probably wouldn't have picked up some of these otherwise, but I needed to fill out my books, otherwise each would have been $0.39, still a good deal though especially when you see that one of the book's bargain price was almost 5 times the cost for all 5.

  6. Wow - 5 books for $.99? What a steal! I have never shopped at a goodwill place but maybe I should start!!

  7. I'd forgotten that Goodwill Stores have a book section. I guess I'm so used to shopping for used books at Half-Price Books and :) I'll have to look into that, especially if mine has titles like those in your mailbox. Happy reading!
