This post is my weekly update about the shiny new books I have bought (I know I need to stop buying them), won (I love to enter giveaways) or received from authors or others. As well as purses I buy or receive, of course!

From the Bookstore
This week I found (by complete accident) a $1.00 bookstore were a Border's bookstore use to be. And I really, really, really tried to walk out of there with nothing in my hands. But two bags and $16.00 (plus tax) later, this is what I got. I know I said I was going to stop buying books for awhile but I couldn't help myself. They were $1.00!

Book Markers. Thank you Jessica! I love the one I can insert a photo into. I just need to find the perfect picture to go in it. I was thinking about finding a photo of an actor who could play in the book I am currently reading. Take it out when the book is done and insert a new one for the new book. Maybe?
