Just the other day, I went into Books A Million. You see, after fighting tooth and nail with Hampton University, I just got fed up. At first, I didn't even feel like going. I was just like, man I spent over a hundred dollars just because . . . You know, I'm not even going to go into all that now. Anyway, let's just say, I've had it up to here with Hampton. I wanted to just go home but I decided to drop by my fav book store, Books A Million. And man, am I super glad I did. I got such great prices, I thought I would share them with y'all.
Time to go shopping!
I know! :) Can you BELIEVE this book was on discount!? As soon as I saw it, I grabbed it and smiled. I was SUPER shocked to see it still on the rack for a discount no less! :O Shocker of the century. And the price was fabulous.
Now I know there's been A LOT of buzz around this book. So there's no need to go into introductions about it and whatnot. I'll just skip to the price. Oh, but just to let you know, I'll probably review this for y'all. When I have the time, which since school is FINALLY letting out soon, it should be . . . well soon. And it's a monster falling love with a human type story. You know I couldn't resist that! :)
List Price: $9.99
Discounted Price: $3.97
*does a happy jig!* I can't WAIT to read it and be all obsessed over it too. *does a high five kick*
Maybe you've heard of it?
Yeah, I thought not. It's not really that famous. I haven't heard a lot of buzz about this series, but it's pretty good for teens. It's very easy to read, it explores the thought of studying abroad (which I will heavily encourage my students to do) and it's just plain ol' fun. The only problem I have with this series is, you guessed it, no minorities. All of these teenagers in this collection are white or some mix of another minority with white. God forbid someone be just pure blood Spanish instead of a mix of the two cultures. Ugh.
Sorry, back to the point.
List Price for Heart and Salsa: $6.99 List Price for Westmin. Abbey: $6.99
Dicounted Price: $1.00 Discounted Price: $2.97
Awesome deal, right? :) And the good news about Books A Million: Every time I go there, I can ALWAYS find this series on discount. So Yippee! Onto the next few!
Yes, I was a fan until Season Three. Then I wanted to chop off people's fingers and toes for ruining such a great show. Anyway, getting past the past. I got Elixir for a GREAT price. Here's the prices:
List Price: $17.99
Discounted Price: $5.97
I know! And it's a hard back, hence the twenty dollar list price. *sighs* I just love looking at the cover. Now if it was a contest between this cover and my cover, well, I don't know who would win. :) Hopefully I'll review this too. There's been some interesting reviews of this book. Some good. Some not so good. So I'll put the record straight. And supposedly this is a series?? Well, I'll do some research and fill you guys in. This is certainly not the only book Hilary Duff has written. So to speak.
Now onto the last book of the day.
