Charity Shop Finds!

Hey guys!

It’s Sunday.

I’m lazy.

And I bought some shit.

So we’re doing a Charity Shop Finds for the first September post!

I didn’t get anything too jaw-dropping, just some backs from authors I like or prettier versions of ones I already own so that means I”ll be doing some unhauling this week!

Did you all find any good deals this weekend? Or are you really excited about any September releases?

Charity Shop Finds!

 

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!

img_4797.jpg

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. ❤

 

IMG_4796.jpg

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.

 

img_4795.jpg

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.

 

IMG_4794

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.

 

IMG_4793

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.

 

IMG_4792

Somme, Somme everywhere. We are huge history buffs as a couple, and so this was a sort of ‘for both of us’ binge.

 

Total?

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?

Charity Shop Finds!

It’s that time again!

I know. I have a shopping problem, but after the Friday I had, I needed some retail therapy.

IMG-4723

Got these two beauties for .90P each! So for a total of £1.80, I have two books that between them have 8 Agatha Christie novels. This now means I also have some doubles and will have to go through and donate some while putting books away for our impending move.

IMG-4721

This is a book that’s actually been on my Amazon wishlist, I got it for £2.00 and it’s pretty much brand new. ❤

IMG-4715

These were 2 for .99P so for £1.98 I got all four of these, they’re part of a really neat travellers and explorers series.

 

IMG-4720

This beauty is Moll Flanders, I remember loving the movie and wanting to read the book, it was also part of the 2 for .99P scheme, so I got it with The Journey a book for the spawn, the first in the Guardians of Ga’hoole series.

I’ve been eying this one forever, honestly, ask the hubs, every time we walked into the charity shop this was in, I would immediately go to see if it was there. The reason being that it was a bit more expensive than what I pay in charity shops. In the end, I paid £10.00 for this and put my other 2/3 Sherlock Holmes books in our donation pile. And I’m pretty happy with that decision. ❤

 

Okay guys, for the grand finale…

We weren’t going to go charity shopping today but the library changed hours so we had a few minutes to kill, and well, when we got to the library we found the score of a lifetime for my husband. There are a couple of books in this pile for me, but they’re mostly for him, he loves his nonfiction and he loves Waterloo and Napoleon.

Want to guess how much this stack was?

I’ll give you a few moments to guess

£2.00

Total.

We added up the price of these new and it’s £120.00 worth of books for £2.00

Well, that’s it for this week’s charity shop haul. We get other things and sometimes I show older finds because I was too lazy to post them before. If the pictures look slightly pretty, those are the ones destined for bookstagram lol

Charity Shop Finds!

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]

£1

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.

 

IMG-4650
30P each, so a total of 60P for these two from the library!

 

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.

2 of my fave finds

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’

IMG-4648
I couldn’t help but share a page out of this HIGHLY entertaining book. £2

 

IMG-4649
£8, a prize won in 1894!

 

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.
