Books Bought #18


Books Bought is a meme that I am hosting here on Cindy’s Love of Books. The purpose of the meme is to list any books you physically have bought either weekly, monthly etc.

Physically bought books can be books you either bought at a friends of the library sale, yard sale, used book store etc. as long as you bought them

As you might have noticed I haven’t bought anything for a little while now and I was doing okay but then this past week I had the urge to go book shopping. I tried to put it off but I couldn’t. I am weak. I hate to admit it but for me book shopping is like an addiction and you need to have your fix and that is my case. I am actually surprised that I managed to go this long without buying anything. I am hoping that the next time will be a month later from today.

Anyways Thursday night Donna/Books Bound, her daughter and myself headed to chapters to do a little shopping. I think a little shopping would be a understatement, not on my part though. The person shall remain nameless. LOL

For Michael I bought:
-Horrid Henry’s Stinkbomb
-Horrid Henry and the Soccer Fiend
-Horrid Henry and the Mummy’s Curse
-Horrid Henry and the Scary Sitter
-Horrid Henry’s Christmas
-Horrid Henry’s Underpants

Horrid Henry’s books are all by Francesca Simon. They are for ages 7-10. Michael loves reading them and we always laugh when we read them.

For myself I bought:
-The Dangerous Days of Daniel X by James Patterson (This is the first book in the series for YA)
-Confessions of a teen nanny #1 by Victoria Ashton
-Confessions of a teen nanny: Rich Girls #2 by Victoria Ashton (this was on sale for $5.39)
-Confessions of a teen nanny: Juicy Secrets #3 by Victoria Ashton (this was on sale for $5.39)
-Love at first click by Elizabeth Chandler
-Company’s Coming: School Days Lunches by Jean Pare. (I was happy when I found this one as these cookbooks are always expensive and I managed to get it for $6.29 CAN)

What books did you buy this week?

  1. I haven’t bought any – yet. I’m like you, though – I fight the urge, so when I go, I buy too many.

  2. I love reading your posts about your shopping expeditions with Donna!

    I received 10 books for review this week (Yikes!) with the new job I am a little behind, but I got 206 Bones by Kathy Reichs and that is the one I am reading now.

    I *did* cave in and order some books from Amazon.uk. All 4 are novels with the main characters involved in yoga somehow 🙂 one track mind and all…. I managed not to go to Chapters or Indigo – this is easier now since I don’t work downtown anymore.

  3. You got some great bargains, Cindy! I see you’ve put how much each cost. I can’t do that since I think I lost my receipt.

    Now, I’m not sure who the nameless person you’re referring to is…not me surely! Unfortunately I went book shopping again today, but it’s not my fault! My husband wanted to go and I had to go too just to make sure he didn’t spend too much.

  4. I bought a whole bunch, but will just limit my list to a few 🙂

  5. Yay! Research and checking on the inventory!! I need to read a James Patterson book to see what it’s all about. I like the titles you’ve bought for Michael. There was a stinkbomb going off every couple of weeks or month or two when I went to high school. lol!

    Oh, and I remember having a scary sitter once, and I guess the Captain Underpants franchise has expanded a little. lol!

    Enjoy your books! =)

  6. I participated in this meme for the first time this week! My post is here: http://shereadsandreads.blogspot.com/2009/08/books-bought-mailbox-monday-august-31.html

    I’m always impressed with how many books you buy!
