How could I not resist buying books on Black Friday?
I am a member to both Barnes & Nobles and Books-A-Million. Unfortunately, both of them are about an hour from where I live so I don’t get to go there very often. I did have a B&N near my family when we visited for Thanksgiving (obviously couldn’t pass it up).
One of the benefits of having a member card is the extra discounts plus the coupons they send a few times a year. I entered the local B&N armed with my member card, a gift card from my birthday, and a skeleton of a plan.
I had one coupon for 20% off a history book, two coupons for 20% off one item, and one coupon for buy one get one tea tins.
Here’s my haul:
- The Radium Girls by Kate Moore
I’ve been seeing this one a lot on Goodreads lately. It almost has the same buzz as Hidden Figures (haven’t read that one yet either). I picked up with an extra 20% with my coupon.
2. A Certain Age by Beatriz Williams
I love historical fiction, especially anything from the 20s and 30s. This one looked interesting and was only about $6 in the bargain section.
3. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
I’ve seen several other bloggers read this book and absolutely love it. I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. I got an extra 20% off with my coupon.
4. Harvey & Sons Tea Tins
I’ve been trying to become more of a tea drinker (I still love my coffee). But I really really enjoy the routine and ritual of making tea. And some of the flavors are absolutely amazing. I haven’t tried The White Christmas blend yet, but it smells amazing. I am drinking the Holiday Spice blend and it just SMELLS like Christmas!
5. A Gift for My Sister
My other 20% off coupon went toward something for my sister for Christmas. I’m not going to elaborate on what it is for obvious reasons.
