Wednesday, August 31
Borders is having a big going-out-of-business sale and although I am sad to see any book store go, Roy and I did get some great deals the other day.
Taking advantage of Grandparents offering to watch the little man, we went, knowing that if we had him with us we would only be able to look for about 7 minutes.
Everything was 60% off or more so I spent a little more than I should have from the budget but that's ok, I will just cut back on eating this week.
My scores included:
The Day of Battle: The War in Sicily and Italy 1943-1944 by Rick Atkinson(great reference book from the time and place my Grandfather was in the War)
Made From Scratch by Jenna Woginrich (OK, I already have this one in hard cover but I just could NOT pass it up. It is one of my all-time favorites)
A Company of Heroes: Personal Memories About the Real Band of Brothers by Marcus Brotherton (I enjoy all things WWII and Band of Brothers related)
Up Tunket Road by Philip Ackerman-Leist (was on my to-read list and I got it for $6)
Slow Death By Rubber Duck: The Secret Danger of Everyday Things by Rick Smith (I will save this for a rainy day when I want to get paranoid about something)
The Ultimate Guide to Homesteading by Nicole Faires (I could not believe I found this one! I have wanted this for a long time, just never got around to buying it)
One Man's Wilderness: An Alaska Odyssey by Sam Keith (All about Richard Proenneke!!)
