I am an avid reader and book blogger who enjoys engaging in meaningful discussions. Much of my reading involves literary and contemporary fiction, but I love a well-written nonfiction or memoir. This blog is my attempt to reflect, record, and connect.
Today is my first full day back home after my trip to NYC. I finished 3 books over the trip that need to be reviewed, so that's what I'll be working on today. In the meantime, I thought I'd share with you some of my not so thrifty book finds for the last month and a half. The first batch came from the Borders near me that is closing soon, and the other batch is from Strand Book Store near Union Square. The mug in the second photo was an impulse buy, but I just couldn't pass up such a cute design! Also, Eating Animals and 31 Bond Street are both upcoming reads for my book club, so I justify those by saying I'm planning ahead.
While all these books were half-off the list price, they are still more than my usual $1-3 finds. However, it's nice to get to read some newer books that I've had my eye on recently.
Have you read any of these? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
