I love books…. But I’ve literally never, EVER bought a book for myself. Like, ever. Until now.
I’ve always just read my family’s books, and have never lacked another book to read, and still don’t. (We have the equivalent of 10 bookshelves…) But there’s just something about OWNING a book…. It’s awesome.
Books are just to expensive to buy new, and I wasn’t willing to spend my life savings on one book. So I never did.
(That “however” is a very important part of this post.)
I recently found an online book store called ThriftBooks. There, I found a bunch of great books, many for only $4-5!!!!
*queue shocked gasps*
Of course, there were some more expensive then that. But the main books I wanted were around that price. And WOWWW, I’m just like…. I CAN FINALLY AFFORD BOOKS!!!!!!!
And I bought 7 books. For $26 dollars!! A pretty awesome deal for a little over a month’s “income”, if I do say so myself! 😂 😄
I really had to restrain myself to not buy more than 7. Talk about self-control, folks! LOL 😂
Anyway, now that that rant is over, here are the books that I got. 😀
First, I got this little series by Jeri Massi. Some Through the Fire, and All Through the Blood. I’ve read several other good books by this author, so I’m excite for these! Plus, look how THICK they are!! 😍
Next, I’ve always wanted to read Little Women, but I haven’t yet. (Although I’m very familiar with the story.) However, it ended up being a condensed version for kids, which was a bit disappointing, but I’ll still enjoy reading it, lol! And it only cost like 3 dollars, so I’m not mad about it. 😉 I’ll probably buy the real one later though!
The last 4 books are ALL by Leslie and/or Eric Ludy. I love their books, and these were actually the original books I was going to buy. Her books are very encouraging and I’ve learned a lot from the ones I’ve read.
I am looking forward to reading this one the most probably. 😀
So yeah, those were the books I bought right there! I haven’t read any of them yet actually. They just came in the mail yesterday! (I was over the moon excited when I was opening them! XD) I can’t decide which to read first!!!!! #bookloverproblems 🤣
Ok, now, I wasn’t planning on buying any more books after having just bought those. But when I went to find the original Little Women (on another site similar to Thriftbooks) they gave me $5…. HOW CAN I PASS THAT UP?!?! So I bought the Little Women book, and then I threw in 2 Anne of Green Gables books. So I spent another $10. But for 3 books!!!!
My wallet is still recovering.
BUT I’M SO EXCITED!!!
I can’t show you pictures of the actual books, because I uh, just bought them literally MINUTES ago, and for some reason, they haven’t come in the mail yet. But here’s the closest to a picture I have – a screenshot of the cart! 😂
(And yes, I know that those Anne books are not in order…. My sister said it would OK to not read them in order, and these are the ones she thought I’d like best. I’ve only read the first one so far. 😉 )
So yeah. I’m more than a little excited to read these books!!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

P.S. Have you guys read any of these? Have you ever bought from ThriftBooks?
Disclaimer: I can’t fully recommend these books as I haven’t read them yet, however all of these books I am either very familiar with, or trust the author. 🙂
