TRIPLE Book Haul

So this weekend, I went to another city to see a graduation! The city I live in does not have a single decent bookstore (besides the one in the church only open on Sundays) so I had high hopes that going to this new city would allow me a chance to look into some new bookstores.

1st Stop: Books A Million

This store had a huge bargain books section and I just went crazy. I got a ton of books I had just been waiting forever to get or I had literally just found then, and so here are the books I bought.

WARNING: I want to get at least a stock photo for every single book, but for space I will be making them as small as possible. This will still probably be an extravagantly long post.

Then I went to the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet. I heard that they had some books, but I did not know just how many. Then I just walked into the store and to my right were just books upon books. I went to the Teen Fiction Shelf, saw the City of Lost Souls in Paperback, and looked at the back. 3 dollars. I just went crazy and started snatching up all the books I wanted.

The Infinite Sea $2 (Hardcover)

In the past week between the church book sale, those book stores, and bookoutlet I have a grand total of 58 new books! This is absolutely crazy, I haven’t gotten this many at one time since me and my family used to hit a bunch of Goodwills on the way home from vacations and just buy tons of chapter books. Definitely not in the past 3-4 years. So I won’t be buying any books for awhile, but it will take me ages to read through all of these. Thanks for reading! Reviews to come!






BookOutlet is AMAZING (Book Haul)

Okay so when I went to bookoutlet I wasn’t really sure what I would be expecting. I thought that I could possibly be getting some pretty okay books, and then I worried that the books would be so damaged that I would not be able to read them. However all of them were in perfect condition (for the non scratch and dent copies) and in near-perfect condition for the ones that happened to be scratch and dent. For the sake of visual proof I will be taking a picture of all the books I bought, just excuse the poor lighting. I will definitely be going here for the books I cannot find on my amazing book sale spot in my city.

Oz The Complete Collection Volume 4 (Scratch and Dent)



This is supposed to be a scratch and dent copy. This was the only scratch/dent that I found on the entire book. $3.79

The Unwanteds Island of Silence (Scratch and Dent)



Again, hunting for the one issue with the book. $2.19

Pegasus Olympus at War



Zeroes (Scratch and Dent)


SO this had a bit more damage than the others, but I only paid $2.69 for it so its still not so bad.

The Novice (Scratch and Dent)


There was a tiny bend in the pages at the top by the spine, but I couldn’t get it to come into focus well. Otherwise nothing was wrong. $2.69




Four (Scratch and Dent)


Nothing was wrong with this book. $2.69

The Rule of Thoughts (Scratch and Dent)


Slight page bending. $2.69

The Girl on the Train


$5.89 (Most expensive book)

CHERUB: The Killing



Is it Night Or Day? (Scratch and Dent)


Nothing was wrong with this copy. $1.59 (Cheapest book)

The Secret War



The End of Infinity (Scratch and Dent)


This was probably the worst copy damage-wise. However the pages were in perfect condition so it won’t affect reading at all as this is a hardcover. $3.79

So all in all I should have paid $42.47 for these books in amazing condition plus shipping right? WRONG! The shipping is free for orders over $35, and there is a code for the first purchase for 15% off. So all in all I paid only $36.10 for these books. They only took a week to deliver, and I am loving how every one looks. For those like me, reading on a budget, this is a great site. Especially if you, like me, have no large used book stores within walking or even 5-10 minute driving distance from your house. It also has many new books that used bookstores often lack. I advise everyone to use this site when possible so that they will be supported and continue to offer this amazing service.

Random Book Sale Book Haul

So as I was out with my family, we were headed to the mall for some shopping. I was slightly dreading the trip because I just knew that it would be extra crowded for Mother’s Day, but I wanted to go anyways  simply because I needed some stuff from said mall. Then on the way there, we saw a sign on a church saying that there was a book sale happening there every Sunday after church indefinitely. We decided to stop there just to see if they had anything good simply because the items were only a dollar for paperbacks, 2 for hardcover, and select ones for free. Boy was I glad that I stopped by. I ended up spending 15 dollars, and I got 17 books.

Free Books

I could not BELIEVE my eyes when I saw Scarlet on the free table. It looked in a bit of a rough condition, but its still a fairly new book and popular at that. I picked up the second one randomly because, well it was free and I was looking for a few new book reading ideas. Then I went onto the rest of the sale.

Outlander Series


Out of these, the only books I don’t own now are Outlander and Written In My Own Heart’s Blood. The rest of the books were there, in near-perfect condition, for a dollar apiece! I almost died. Even on Amazon 1 book is about 9 dollars on kindle and in paper. This was probably the best deal, but I still got more.



Breaking Dawn must have been bought already but I snagged the first 3 books of the series for 3 dollars. This will be sitting on the shelf looking nice and shiny with my new copy of Life and Death, the genderswapped retelling.

Random Books

All of these books were in perfect condition, and I got about every book I could find there. There may have been more, particularly some small paperback series’ that I had to overlook simply because I didn’t have the money to buy it all. But since this place wants to do it every Sunday, I will be able to definitely go there again sometime to see if they will have more.
