However I cracked today when I was in Shoppers Drugmart, of all places... They had some books on for 25% off! And I couldn't resist.
As a sidenote, do you know what's dumb? Well, first of all, buying books when you have over 1k on your TBR list on Goodreads (hey, that's every book that I've ever encountered on there that I might be interested in reading) and at least fourteen physical books waiting for your attention.
So there's that.
Then there's buying a book that is actually the second in a series when you haven't read the first... But we'll get to that in a minute.
I'll be honest, I wasn't intending on buying The Book Of Negroes. It was a book that I intended on reading, of course! But it wasn't high up there. Still, something about it appealed to me in the store, and it has good reviews from people I trust on GR, so I picked it up. How could I resist $12.99? :)
Now, let's talk about this second book... I'll be honest, I bought this book because it's beautiful.
So, as you may be able to guess, I just couldn't resist how utterly gorgeous this second book is. I've been meaning to read Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children for quite awhile, but somehow never got around to it - that's about to change :) And then I'll be able to move on to this gorgeous copy of the second one!
So those are my two purchases for today, so hopefully this will break the slump that I've been in :) I have quite a pile of ARCs that I need to get to so they are next on my list.
