Hey guys! It’s Sunday and I’m lazy, so it’s another Charity shop find for me. I was especially excited by the first two books if I’m going to be honest!
I have The Poppy War on Kindle but I do tend to read better when I have a paper or hardback, and I wanted to get The Bone Season as I’m seeing Samantha Shannon again this month and well, I’ve already asked her to sign my Priory haha, and besides, I want to get into this series now. ❤
I purely got this one because I loved the out there cover, I’ve read both of these books and we own them already but I like having ‘fun’ editions. And I’m obviously a little obsessed with books. Like you probably. It’s cool, I’m not judging.
The ‘Historical Whodunits’ just called to me, how could it not? For a mystery thriller like myself, I had to at least give it a try and my husband had been curious about Tom Hanks and his book, so we nabbed that up as well.
This is where I am probably going to lose most of you lol, we went on another nonfiction binge. Sidney Poitier’s movies always have been some of my faves so I grabbed up the memoirs and the book on the left is a Scotland history but it’s focusing on different aspects and isn’t one ‘speciality’ like a lot of history books are, and obviously 1421 is a dope ass history book about China and all its amazingness.
Nelson Mandela was such an intriguing man, and it’s hard not to want to read more on him so I grabbed this and the one on the right is a book about Chairman Mao.
Somme, Somme everywhere. We are huge history buffs as a couple, and so this was a sort of ‘for both of us’ binge.
A little over 10 quid.
Did you score any good book deals? Doesn’t have to be from a charity shop, what about just buying a book you wanted in general?
I’ve got a busy week of blog tour reviews so today we’re taking it easy with some charity shop finds from yesterday and throughout the last week or so.
[Also, we’ve got around 3 piles of books to take and donate so it’s not just us getting more books haha]
I’ll admit it, I’ve already read this one and loved it, so when I saw it and had a spare pound coin on me, I totally went ahead and grabbed it.
We’ve been doing the summer activities in our library for the spawn, she’s entered the reading challenge and we’ve done some fun things but sometimes I wander off to the for sale shelves. It’s resulted in these two being purchased haha.
Okay so these were two of my fave finds as I’ve stated, the one on the left is ‘The Water Babies’ and I’m a huge fan of the ridiculous film and started reading the book a couple of years back, but it’s a newer version and I’ve really wanted an older version of it, finally my hubs spotted this yesterday and it was my huge splurge. I paid £8.00 for it and £2.00 for the one on the right, ‘Book of Beasts’
Well, that’s all I have to share, I did grab up an Agatha Christie yesterday for another £1 and the hubs got a nonfiction about the fall of the Mughal Empire for another £1.
Total Spent: 13.60
A bit on the high end for it but I really wanted that old Water Babies lol.
So I could do like a combined post of my March Wrap up and Haul but I’m going to split it, mostly to milk it this time around because I’m playing in a fiddle rally right now while you all are reading this.
I want to note something first, all these books because it is an overwhelming amount, only 5 were new that I paid for (Hint; The Famliars was one but I had to steal a pic off my own Instagram cause I forgot it in the gathering lol), 3 unpictured were also new but were gifts to my Husband, and 4 were bought used offline, 2 were free and given by the authors, and the rest? ALL CHARITY Shop and I paid less than like 14/15 quid for them. [that includes 9 other charity shop books that were either too far or were mini me’s so I didn’t include them lol]
This is NOT a normal amount of books for me nor will I ever go this crazy again. So please don’t think I always buy this much, I am shocked at my own lack of self control but I needed the retail therapy this month I guess.
