But first, let me show you some of my latest purchases.
As you can see, I've bought lots of magazines and weird stuff such as a sticker album (with lots of stickers that can still be used!) and Japanese notebooks to practice writing kanji (both in the pic below). Oh, and the opened one to the right is not a book either, but an old schedule book. The reason I got it is because it has lots of pictures of flowers I thought I could use for crafts.
I usually see books about unbelievable topics, but when I saw this one, I couldn't believe my eyes! I didn't buy it at first, but after a couple of days, I felt I had to, haha.
Yes, they're comparing cats to actual artists! I could scan the whole book, it's a blast, but I don't want to bore you too much.
Keeping up with the kitties (one of my favorite topics, hehe), these are some that called my eye but didn't make it home.
There are many books that are not just books and bring an extra something, like these two:
For a buck per book, I could be bringing even more stuff home, but I can't keep buying things that I just might read or use. I almost bought this one, though. It looks good for kids, very entertaining, I guess.
Here are some covers I found clever and/or eye appealing.
I hate books by authors who try to sell people "recipes for life". I wonder if such books have worked for anybody ... I don't know, maybe I'm just being too judgemental, but what can I say? I'm not a Deepak Chopra fan (like at all).
We can usually tell when a whole bundle belonged to one same person when we see many books by same writer or about the same topic. Last week, we received about twenty medical books, for instance; and today, I found all these about art.
Oh, boy! I totally regret not having purchased at least one of these :/. Let's see if they're still there on Monday ...
I totally hate this picture, by the way. It's an art gallery guide that was inside one of these books above.
I guess I should read this one before ranting on that pic, though, hehe.
Anyway, my favorite bundles are those obviously owned by old people; they're little treasures! There are lots of classics, first editions and antiques.
So, check all the books really well before you decide to donate them to the library. You don't want to accidentally get rid of relic or a signed copy! ;) And also check the boxes if someone else packed them with books for you; it's not unusual to find stuff like this among them:
Yes, you guessed right; it's an Ipod case, haha.
I apologize for the pic overload and their bad quality; they were taken with my phone in a poorly lit room :/.
I wish you all a great weekend! :D Have fun!
