Book Haul!! (+Vlogmas Weeks 3 and 4)

Hey everyone!! 😀

I have a really fun post for today. I recently bought several books from Thriftbooks, and I’m going to do a book haul, and show you guys what I got!!

Thriftbooks is my favorite place to buy books, as you can often get them for an incredibly cheap price. They are used, but are generally in good condition. 🙂

As you can see, I was pretty excited to get the packages! Getting books in the mail is one of the bestest and funnest feelings ever…!!! 😀 📚

I bought 9 books altogether, for around 35 dollars. To me, that seems like an awful lot of money, but when you consider that it’s only a little over 3 dollars per book…. Super good deal!! Anyways, here’s what I got, and what I spent on them!! (And believe me, I spent a long time very carefully contemplating which books to get!) 😂


Roses for Mama by Jannette Oke ($4.67)

I haven’t read this one yet, but my mom really loved it when she was younger, so I’m excited to read it!

A Gown of Spanish Lace by Jannette Oke ($4.19)

Another one by the same author, because I love her books!

A Father’s Promise by Donna Lynn Hess ($3.99)

Several of my siblings love this book, so I had to get it. Plus, I love WWII stories. I have a feeling this book is going to make it into my list of favorites. 🙂

Through the Fire by Diane Noble ($4.39)

The first books of the Mysteries and the Minister’s Wife series.

A State of Grace by Traci Depree ($3.99)

And the second book! I read these a long time ago, and loved them. I’m excited to read them again!!

Deepest Roots of the Heart by Chautona Havig ($4.39)

Another WWII story!!! I’m just starting to read this author’s books. 🙂

Emma by Jane Austen ($3.99)

Been wanting to read this one for quite awhile! So far the only Jane Austen books I’ve read is Pride and Prejudice, which I loved. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Emma. 😀

Joni – And Unforgettable Story by Joni Earekson Tada ($4.79)

An autobiography by a very inspiring lady! I’ve watched a movie about her, but haven’t yet read any of her books. 🙂

Calico Captive by Elizabeth George Speare ($3.99)

The is another one my siblings have read and liked. I’ve wanted to read it for a long time, and I also love the other books by this author!

And there you go! I’m SO excited to read these books!! I had some credit from past orders, so one of these books was free, but I don’t remember which. Also, since I spent over $10, shipping was free, which was awesome! I would totally recommend Thriftbooks to anyone who loves books, but doesn’t have a lot of money to spend on them. (Also, if you don’t mind your books being a little worn, if you choose the cheapest option) 🙂 It’s awesome!!

Book Haul!

Standard
Book Haul!

Hey everyone!

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.

HOWEVER.

(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 😂

This is a picture representing my excitement, before I calmed down enough to take decent pictures…

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!
