Once December rolls around, I'm pretty good about only making purchases for others instead of myself. I love thinking about and planning the perfect gift for someone. There's nothing better than watching the recipient's face light up with recognition that the gift he or she holds is actually something they like.
However, there is one thing that manages to slip under the radar this time a year: a book. Now, I do limit myself to only frugal finds so as not to completely negate my policy. Here is a stack of my recent acquisitions. There is a pretty good mix of books here from YA to Pulitzer Prize winning. I'm really excited about Had a Good Time by Robert Olen Butler. He is a new-to-me author who takes vintage postcards from the early twentieth century and crafts short stories based on the messages found on the backs of the cards. How awesome is that?!
What are some of your most recent book finds? I'm always looking for great recommendations!
