Happy New Year everyone! So since I didn't buy many books this month due to me trying to save money for gift shopping- I know six people who all have birthdays in the same week of December- and not many book releases that I was excited for in the past two months, I decided to do a collective post on books and bookish things I either bought or received as gifts. So, before I can ramble on like I always do, here is my little haul for you guys!
Library Of Souls by Ransom Riggs- Birthday Gift- Barnes & Noble
Slated by Teri Terry- Birthday Gift
Classic Tales of Horror- Birthday Gift
Isn't my book haul for the month just adorable? ;)
Les Miserables Original Broadway Cast Recording- Thrift Shop- $1 (gift for a friend)
School Of Rock Original Broadway Cast Recording- Amazon- $7 (gift for a friend)
Star Wars Original Motion Picture Soundtrack- Wal-Mart- $12
25 by Adele- Wal-Mart- $14
The High Road by JoJo- Amazon- $3
JoJo by JoJo- Amazon- $4
So as you can clearly see, I own two copies of The High Road because of two reasons: (1) when I received the CD, the wrong album was in the case, the CD inside was the first album and (2) I was sent a replacement copy by the seller which was really nice of them! So, I own two copies of both albums even though I only have one copy of The High Road . . . yeah it's weird. MOVING ON.
I also received the Paper Towns movie from my brother for my birthday and recently bought The Scorch Trails movie from Wal-Mart just the other day . . . which leads me to my second story.
So I bought two CD's, a candy bar and The Scorch Trails from Wal-Mart all together, when I got home from the store a few hours later, I was checking the receipt so I could write the amount down in my ledger. I noticed that the receipt said I had purchased three items and showed the amounts for each item. Upon further inspection, it turns out that I wasn't charged for the movie which pretty much made me like "WHAT?!" It also doesn't make any sense since I saw the cashier scan the movie and the amount showed up on the screen as $19.98. I felt pretty guilty about it since, you know, I like to pay for the things I want.
SO, that's my weird book/CD haul for you guys. I had a couple of pretty strange purchases happen this month which I hope don't end up happening again.
Read on bookworms! See you in the next chapter! (check your receipts!)
