I had no intention of procuring any new books, aside from the pending requests I have still lingering on NetGalley, which I hopefully will be approved for soon.
I had a couple coupons to one of my favorite bookstores, Divine Truth. And since I am trying to be an adult, I thought it would be a good idea to go get this book:
...to help further my progress in being a better money-manager. The book and workbook were on sale, so it was perfect timing. Until ten other books demanded to be purchased as well...
Clearly, I am Ramsey's target audience but so help me if he tries to cure me of this compulsion to buy books constantly, we will have a problem.
And then when I was at the register, the owner of the store, Mr Rod Mackrill, made a comment about me liking to read and asked if I had read his wife's book. I said I didn't know and asked who she was; he said, "Hold on a minute", then returned about a minute later and gave me a copy of her book.
I am pretty pleased with this unexpected haul, and so touched by the generosity of Mr Mackrill for the gift of his wife Susan's book. Let me know what gems you found this week and what you think of mine.
