I placed a BookOutlet.com order again! It was because they had a deal for this weekend only, get $10 off any purchase of $30 or more. And I’ve made it through several books since I placed my last order, so I figured it was an okay thing for me to do. I’ve read half of the books that I last bought from BookOutlet, bought 5 other books since then, and read one of those. I definitely make plans on continuing the Gone series, so those will be dealt with before I get this order in. Yay, books!
I’ve been devouring books lately…
I just need to slow down long enough to actually write blog posts about them. I have notes written down, I just need to get it down on my blog! :-( sorry…
BookOutlet.com book haul!
My shipment came in just in time for me to take my books to the beach for the day. I was so, super excited to open the box, because I haven’t gotten any new books for more than 6 months, and even then, I got them from thrift stores. Nonetheless, I’m really happy with my order from book outlet and can’t wait to order from them again.
What I got:
1) Flame of Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier- $5.99
She is easily my favorite author, and the Sevenwaters series is my favorite series. I even love it more than Harry Potter, which is an amazing feat. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but I adore Irish folk lore and mythology.
2) Hunger by Michael Grant- $2.49 (scratch and dent)
Book 2 if his Gone series. I read book one more than a year ago, and I really enjoyed it and found it very intriguing. It made me wasn’t too know more, so I’ll be continuing the series soon, I hope.
3) Lies by Michael Grant- $2.49 (scratch and dent)
Book three of his Gone series.
4) Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs- $2.99
I like to pick up a random book sometimes, or at least a book I don’t know much about and am not sure I will for sure like. This was that book for me. All I know is that it’s about mermaids.
5) Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon- $3.49
Again, I love all things Irish. This book sounds so to my tastes, it’s not even funny, so I’m really looking forward to reading this series.
6) Shadow of the Mark by Leigh Fallon- 2.49 (scratch and dent)
Book two of her Marked series.
7) Incarnate by Jodi Meadows- $3.99
A book about souls and reincarnation, so also right up my line of interests. Hopefully it’s as good as I’m hoping it will be.
Shipping for my order was $6.49, and was a mix of UPS (not ground) and USPS (just once it was in Houston, probably because I had it delivered to a PO BOX ), so it was pretty fast, even if it hadn’t been coming from outside the country, much less so the way from Thorold, Ontario, CA. The scratch & dent books aren’t all that bad, Lies is the in the worst condition with the crease all the way down the front cover, but otherwise, I barely even notice the problems, but that is the risk you take with scratch and dent. It will bother some people, but I’m not one of those people. I prefer my books a little bit beat up, because I don’t like to break a book. If it’s already beat up, then I don’t have to worry as much about it when I accidentally mess it up, too.
All in all, I’m very very happy with my order from BookOutlet.com
Have a nice day, and happy reading!
I either finish a book and have the next one propped over and ready to go or I wait 27 years and two wars before I start the next one. There is no in between.
That is a 100% accurate description of my reading methods
And it’s not always because the book wasn’t great, but sometimes I’m just not ready, or I’m afraid to be disappointed.
Writing is something that you don’t know how to do. You sit down and it’s something that happens, or it may not happen. So, how can you teach anybody how to write? It’s beyond me, because you yourself don’t even know if you’re going to be able to. I’m always worried, well, you know, every time I go upstairs with my wine bottle. Sometimes I’ll sit at that typewriter for fifteen minutes, you know. I don’t go up there to write. The typewriter’s up there. If it doesn’t start moving, I say, well this could be the night that I hit the dust.
