That uh oh is for two reasons. First, my lack of posting or reading any blogs. Second, because Half Price Books is forcing more books upon me.
When I started working there last month I saw that other workers had a bunch of books on their stash shelves (they’re basically a holding shelf.) It’s where we put books/movies/games we may want to buy in the future. Some of the shelves are overflowing with things. Of course they aren’t all new, but they’re from the store.
I was of the opinion that I wouldn’t hardly use mine at all. Then I saw Mockingjay for $3. Then I saw The Perks of Being a Wallflower for the same price. And Gone Girl. These aren’t necessarily books I was planning on getting soon, but when you see that price you gotta act. I’ve since added several more. And it’s essentially become a weekly thing. Finding some book that I’m interested in or have known about for a long time and then putting it on my shelf.
Half Price Books is forcing me to buy more books when I’m not even reading any. I hate it. And love it at the same time. Ha. No question today because none of y’all are going to see this anyway. Just a slight update.
