dare I admit that there was another trip to Borders

Don't mock Russell. I encouraged him this time.

The Monday-Wednesday special this week was buy six, save an extra 10%, buy 8, save an extra 15%. It seemed like a good deal (provided the liquidator made good on it, unlike the last time) so we decided that Russell should go on a reconnaisssance and possible shopping mission today.

Russell made out pretty well and reported that it wasn't busy at all. He didn't even have to wait in line!

For me:
  • Bumped by Megan McCafferty (I've been dying to read this one)
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver (on my 2011 challenge reading list assigned by Jessica)
  • Encounter by Milan Kundera (to complete my collection; I own everything Kundera's written that's available in English)
  • The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey (because I'm not a fan of Simon & Schuster at the moment; see why)
For Russell:For both of us:Yes, that's a total of eight items. And, yes, we did get an extra 15% off.


  1. A great haul! Perhaps I should drop by our Borders this week and see what they have going on there....

  2. I love book shopping!! one of the greatest pleasures in the world - besides reading that is :D
    I just went on a book buying binge myself, even though I don't NEED to LOL but I couldn't resist a 50 percent off sale at B&N!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, let me know if you read The Woodcutter by Reginald Hill, it's a great book, would love to know your thoughts!
