    1. Isn't it? I found a lot of stuff that I haven't seen on Half Price clearance before, so I snapped 'em up. You should definitely share your spoils on your blog. lol

  4. I know the feeling! I have no business buying more books to read, but our library sale is this weekend, and it only happens twice a year! Sometimes it feels good to be bad :) My plan for the Spring sale is to save all of my pocket change until then, and that will be my budget. Of course, that will probably only result in me never paying with exact amount so I'll always end up getting change. Maybe I should just stick to a $20 limit after all!

  8. wow, so many goodies. I don't often buy books, for economic reasons and for lack of place, so I rely a lot on my library. I did buy 1 book at a book sale recently, the Nobel Prize Blindness: http://wordsandpeace.com/2013/08/30/blindness-book-review/

    1. Ooh, Blindness! Have had it on my shelves for a scandalously long time. Unread, of course. Argh!

  9. After the Haul of Epicness where I got the 65 books to keep for myself for $6, I haven't been buying any more. Lie, I did buy one more this weekend. Hangs head in shame. It's a sickness. I should be stopped! :-) Love your haul. Awesome books there that I'll have to add to my TBR.

  18. Of course you needed these! :)

    I've bought books here and there but I feel like I haven't had a good book haul in a long time. Hmm, must remedy that!

  20. wow, this is really a bargain!!
    I've been thinking about reading "My Antonia" since always, I have to read this book; I like Willa Cather very much.
    Regarding the rest, I only know the one by Audrey Niffenegger, but I have read that it's not as good as her previous novel (which I loved, by the way).
