A clearance and a cameo
I had heard this book shop in my local shopping centre was shutting down; in fact I was already planning on visiting to see whether there would be some sort of clearance about the place.
Well it turns out they’ve given up trying to sell everything individually, instead it is simply fill a bag for: £10
The first time I was with my boyfriend and we somehow managed to fill the bag with 21 books between us! Yes 21. So much so that the bag split by the time we got out of the shop! I was literally laughing so much it was just one of those moments, and we had walked up to the shops that day, so we didn’t even have the car to help us (and the books) get home.
I then went back again a few days later and filled a bag for £5! A smaller one admittedly, but I still managed to cram 11 books into it!
So here are some of my favourites from the bag(s)...
I got these two lovely scrapbooking books, it’s no secret scrapbooking is one of my favourite pastimes, and these books may just give me a little spur of inspiration in the craft department.
I also stumbled across this wrapping paper, Peter Rabbit of course! I was so pleased with this, I am already planning to create a collage.
Also coincidently this Miss Potter book of the film. I have seen this film so many times and really do love Renee Zellweger as Beatrix.
I am always fascinated to learn more about cats, and saw this as an opportunity, so picked these two factual cats books out. And then I saw Jim- The Nine Lives Of A Dysfunctional Cat, and the cover completely had me.
Dear Me A Letter To My Sixteen-Year-Old Self, one I’ve wanted for absolutely ages.
Two more that have been on my to read list, Girl With A Pearl Earring recommended by my wonderful friend and Toast, having watched the drama on TV a couple of weeks a go, I am intrigued to read the book it was based on.
And inevitably some children’s books, I love children’s fiction so very much so and completely fell for these. I already have one of Julia Golding's books so these nicely add to the series. And I did always have a bit of a thing for dolphins when I was younger, so this was tugging at my heart strings. (I may not be 12 anymore, but still very much appreciate a shiny glittery book cover)
I know I own far too many books, but I just couldn’t resist such a clearance and know I won’t need to buy a new book for quite a while now.
All in all if you were to sit down and do the maths the books work out roughly around 50p each, which for a brand new book is quite the bargain in my eyes.
Happy reading springs to mind!
p.s I don’t consider myself to be much of a lucky person; in fact I can’t even seem to win rock, paper, scissors. But I somehow managed to win Jennie from Sailboats giveaway!
I don’t ever buy jewellery for myself so this was such a lovely little package to receive today. I do love a cameo and my I am so enchanted by the intricate design. Thank you so very much Miss Jennie! xxx
