In My Mailbox...aka....where am I going to put it all?!
Um...I can explain...I promise...
I went to two library book sales (maybe three, I don't remember?) this week and I got two bags of books (one for $5 and one for $7!) and I filled them to the brim! Altogether I spent less than $15 on books this week, pretty sweet huh? And I'm graduating in a week and a day so I thought I'd treat myself a little, which is why I bought all those classics, too. I figure if I'm going to be an English teacher I better buff up my classic novel reading ;)
