What was the last book you bought?

Recommended Posts

Oh gosh. The question for me is what were the last books I bought, as in plural. XD The last day I went to buy books (just this past Saturday, actually), I ended up buying a lot. It's because I went to a book sale at my local library, and we were allowed to bring our own bag, fill it up to capacity, and pay only $3.50 for whatever was in that bag. So I went crazy! I bought a ton of literary classics and ended up finding an additional gem: this huge medical dictionary that I've been eying. I'm trying to build up a great book collection, including all the classics I can find, because I dream of having a room reserved for books in my own home someday. That same weekend, I went out and bought The Arabian Nights and Charles Dickens: 5 Novels, which are from the bound classics collection at Barnes and Noble. I can't wait to start on those. I love books and I love reading! :)

Paradise Lost, by John Milton. But I haven't got around to reading more than the first few pages (which is alot more than it sounds, the print is so small!) because of school work.

I just bought "The Complete Sherlock Holmes," one of the bound leather classics in the Barnes and Noble collection.

I have bought my very own copy of 'Bluestar's Prophecy, Warriors, special addition'. I have borrowed this book at my school library a few times and at last I have my own copy!

So today was Jane Austen's 235th birthday and Barnes and Noble was offering up one of the books in the leather-bound classics collection with 7 of her major works in it for 50% off online. Normally, they sell for about $20, but I was able to get it for about $9 after the promotion, signing up for a free trial membership (got free express shipping from that), and applying another coupon I recently received via e-mail. I was very happy. Collecting and reading literary classics is my guilty pleasure. :D

The last books I bought weren't exactly for my reading pleasure, but I enjoyed them either way. A class I was enrolled in was going to be reading Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Bram Stoker's Dracula. A few months ago, for my own personal enjoyment, I bought Anne McCaffrey's Moreta: Dragon Lady of Pern because I'm a sci-fi nerd! :wacko:

Arrgh, all the books I've read recently are borrowed. I believe The Hobbit, though.

I bought The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini at my library for 35 cents. :) I've always heard about how great this book is and now I get to read it for myself!
