This will seem like a large book haul, but a month and few days has passed since I last posted one of these so let’s blame the abundance of books on the passing of time.
However, it’s been such a long time since I’ve bought these books, some of which I’ve read or mentioned in blog posts, that I feel as if I’ve already mentioned them in a haul post. So typing this feels like déjà vu.
Books I bought
It’s been a while since the celebration of my birthday and many of these were bought way before it came; but, since no one got me any books, I’ll count all these as my presents. 🙂
National Geographic: Wonders of the World
Scientific American MIND: The Mad Science of Creativity
Grammar Girl: The Ultimate Writing Guide for Students
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
Mad Ship by Robin Hobb
Yeahie!! Here I am with the first official book haul for 2017!! Woohoo!!
I am so proud of myself that I haven’t bought much so far. Let’s hope I keep this up for the rest of the year.
Books I bought:
Remember the last time I posted a bookhaul and said that it would be the last one for the year? I lied.
Well, technically I was telling the truth because that was the last bookhaul I posted last year, but y’all know I meant that I wouldn’t buy any more books. (And technically some of these books were bought before I posted that bookhaul so…)
Anyway, here are the books I got pre- and post-Christmas.
Well, I haven’t been posting much lately. At first it was because I was sick, but then I lost enthusiasm as work got busier and the weather got colder. These days I prefer to laze around the house, read, and stay warm. However, I am trying to perk up and at least get interested in blogging again; but the cold, overcast, sometimes rainy and threatening snow weather is making it so, so hard. Hopefully this book haul will perk me up. They are always fun and sometimes they help to get me out of a blogging rut.
…And I’m back with a book haul post. Here are all the books I’ve acquired recently. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve probably seen them already. Oh well.
I don’t usually buy used books but these were in such great condition that I grabbed them. I picked up The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd because I saw lots of rave reviews for it last year, and I got Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley, with illustrations by Douglas Gorsline, because I heard it’s a book that book lovers will enjoy. I think I first heard of it on the Book Riot Youtube channel.
And now for the second part of my comic book haul. In the first part, I showed the awesome art on the posters, bookmarks, and post cards I picked up at the Small Press Expo. Now I’ll show the comic books and graphic novels I picked up.
