My local Border's is closing on Monday, which makes me all sorts of weepy. But the store is also having a grand clearance sale, which makes the penny-pincher in me very happy. As I strolled through the near-empty aisles today, I could have sworn I was suffering from bipolar disorder.
"Oh my goodness, this is the LAST TIME I will ever shop here. *Sobs*"
"But, ZOMG, look at all of the savings! *Grabs books by the fistfuls*"
Most of the store had already been picked through, but I ended up buying five books that only cost me $15. Woot!
|Here I am, showing off some of my bounty.|
I ended up buying the last copy of Jennifer Donnelly's Revolution, which I've been hankering to read for many months. (Total score!) I also bought: The Clone Codes, Inside Out, Plain Kate, and The Mommy Myth: The Idealization of Motherhood and How It Has Undermined All Women. (Hmm, one of these books is not like the others...)
I already own a copy of Plain Kate but I thought I'd buy another one because it was too good of a deal to pass up. This novel is simply beautiful! The prose, the characters, the storyline, the CAT! It's one of my favorite YA novels and I plan on giving away my extra copy on my blog next week. So stay tuned!
So...I tip my hat to you, my beloved Border's. I shall miss sitting in your comfy black chairs. I shall miss perusing through your aisles. And I shall miss stopping by your YA/MG section on my way to shop at H&M. Le sigh.
You shall be sorely missed!
