I Love Sales!

Last night, as I sat clutching my proudly purchased Anna Dressed in Blood, I was in my glory.  The 30% off hardcovers at Chapters (plus my irewards 10%), followed with a little Christmas money had allowed me to finally get that book I've been yearning for!  Then, as I sat texting my friend Natalie (from Browsing Bookshelves), she reminded me that the warehouse near our homes was having its annual 50% off sale.  Last year, I had picked myself up Vampire Academy in hardcover for $5!  So this morning, I got up, got dressed and bolted to the warehouse with a small list of books I would look for. 

My friends, this was like no other book buying spree I have ever had.  I NEVER buy more than 2 or 3 books at once -- too expensive for me.  But this!  Super discounted, remaindered books PLUS 50% off?!  I walked out with some amazing titles for a grand total of $26.50!  Now, I officially own enough books to fill my entire apartment.  I'm so excited to dive in -- let the reading begin!

After seeing Alice Hoffman speak about her books, I read a bunch of synopsis and decided that I HAD to read The Ice QueenThe Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova is a gothic historical romance that I have been eyeing for some time.  Wicked is ... well, WickedDivergent comes HIGHLY recommended from all the bloggers I follow.  Kelley Armstrong's The Reckoning completes my Darkest Powers series and Anna and the French Kiss has got stunning reviews!  So excited =).

Oh wow !! Look at all the fabulous books you got from the Book Depot (right?? 50% off sale? lol) I wish I had the money to spend on some more books, God knows I don't need anymore books but my addiction is just too strong, lol!! I definitely want Anna Dressed in Blood, and Anna and the French Kiss - Great selection Chelsey!

I didn't see Anna and the French Kiss at Book Depot!? Where did you find it!? And I saw Divergent there! Glad you managed to pick up a copy! It was such an amazing deal! I thought about getting The Reckoning but figured I should probably try to cut down on the amount of books I'm buying... I ended up picking up the 2nd and 3rd books in the vampire academy series for 2.50 each, The Tiger's Curse, and Paranormalcy :) It was so busy there I didn't really get a good look at the adult section...so I'm trying to fight the urge to go back there tomorrow haha

You're going to love The Historian, it's amazing!!! This book sale place sounds great though, well jealous that you could get so many books and for such a great price. I've just done the same (will be posting my Christmas haul shortly too!)
