I have hundreds of unread books but I can never resist Book Outlet’s Black Friday sale…so I ended up buying so much that it was delivered in a 25 pound box bigger than my dog.
Ta-da!! Lots of books, more coloring books to add to my already huge collection, a fun craft project, and some postcard books for Postcrossing. A few of the books I ordered were Scratch & Dent, but they were all still in great condition. I tend to have really great luck with S&D books. Only once have a I received something that was in less than stellar condition, and their customer service replaced it immediately when I contacted them.
Some of these have been on my wish list for a really long time, so I’m excited about the selection I managed to get. Only two hardcovers because I seem to be in the minority in the book community who prefers to buy paperbacks. I read Kiss Cam last year for a blog tour and enjoyed it a lot, so I’m happy to own a physical copy now. Kathryn Ormsbee’s Tash Hearts Tolstoy was one of my favorite reads this year, so I’m interested to check out another book by her as well. I wish I’d known that the Catherine McKenzie book was a mass market paperback, but I do already have her books in a couple different sizes so it isn’t a huge deal. I read the first book in the Enemy series after I placed this order, and unfortunately I didn’t love it, so I’ll be getting rid of The Hunted without reading it
Close ups of the postcard books. The two books on the left are really entertaining.
Coloring books!! I don’t even like cats but the illustrations in the Christmas cats book are so adorable that I couldn’t pass it up. A lot of these were on my Amazon coloring book wish list (yes, I have one) so I’m trying not to feel too guilty about buying them, even though I really need to complete some of the coloring books I already own. I’ve already started on one of the scratch-off mandalas and it’s a lot of fun!
Aren’t these adorable? I’m obsessed with Marvel so this is going to be a fun craft project this winter while I’m having Netflix marathons or listening to audiobooks.
In total, minus the Marvel craft kit and a book that was for a gift, I only spent $2.20/item, which is an amazing deal. The coloring books and postcards were more expensive than the books I bought. Most of the books in my order were $1.50 or less! Did you make any fun purchases on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
