Book binge

At work we have a book sale where all the books and things that publishers send us are up for sale super cheap and all the money goes to charity. I've got a CRATE full of new books! I picked up a few mom and baby books that I think would be nice gifts for a friend who is preggo. BTW, one of them is full of lines like we used in the mom's advice challenge. Can't believe I didn't find this one sooner! I picked up a few books by Sophie Kinsella, who I've been wanting to read, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Night Elie Wiesel as well as his Day, which I didn't know about. Then there's a book called Enrique's Journey, which I actually already read on the LA Times web site, but I just love it. It's a journalist's report about a boy and how he traveled on the tops of trained, almost died several times, etc., all to find his mom in the U.S. It was so sad and it one all kinds of awards. Then I also got a cool color book and two nonfiction things I had read about, The Year of Yes (about a girl who says yes to every date in 1 year) and Self Made Man (about a woman who spends a year living as a man). Also got a little box of teas that sound so yummy. So you see I buy books the way I buy digikits. Have way more than I know what to do with, but I love them. I spent way less today than on NSD and I tell myself - at least it's for charity! LOL!

Books- I remember those, I think?! I am seriously feeling a lack in that department lately. I usually read so voraciously, but I spend just about all of my spare time on the computer these days. Have fun reading!

Sophie Kinsella is awesome. Those shopaholic books are laugh-out-loud funny. Yeah, I'm a chick lit sort of a gal...
