March Reads…

I read 6 books this month.  It would have probably been 7 or 8, but The Queen of the Night is a “chunkster” coming in at 561 pages.  I didn’t finish ALL the books on my March TBR list, but I came darn close! I had planned on reading 5 books: Red Queen, Dollbaby, The Queen of the Night, Rebel Queen, and Flawless: Inside the World’s Largest Diamond Heist. Actually, Pretty Baby and Mr. Mercedes were not on my March TBR list at all… You know how that goes 🙂 The Painted Girls was a book I was finishing up from February.   I had to abandon Flawless: Inside the Worlds Largest Diamond Heist because it kept putting me to sleep.  It was a book club choice.. I tried, I really did.  I  am currently reading Rebel Queen.  All and all, not too shabby if I don’t say so myself!

 March Book Haul : Thrift Store Finds!

I am quite proud of my haul this month!  I love to go to thrift stores to pick up used copies of books.  My favorite store to hit up is Goodwill.  Our local Goodwill sells all paperback books for $0.99 and all hardback books for $1.99.  The retail price of my March book haul is $154.74 (if purchased online on Amazon).  What did I pay? $15.84!  Granted my books are used, but I only buy thrift store books if they are in good condition.
