Book Buyers Beware!

Oh, I just love www.Bookcloseouts.com.
It is a scary place of happiness for me. I just ordered a bunch of
books at ridiculously low prices. Most of them below half of what they
are normally. I have needed to buy some readers for our man cub for
quite some time since he is out of Bob Books and not quite ready for
Boxcar Children. That sweet little bug is somewhere in between the "I
want to read!" and the "I can read, Mommy!" area of schooling so I want
to encourage him. Well guess what I found on BCO! Some great DK
(Dorling Kindersley) books full of bright pictures, exciting stories,
and general reading fun. I also found a truckload (but did not walk
away with one) of the Eyewitness series. These are two we did buy:


have such great pictures in a very sturdy hardback. We have many of
this series already, but these two we did not own as well as a
World War II
one. I have been super careful with book money recently and have not
made any orders so hopefully when my husband gets this blog entry he
will be a happy camper.

I was also able to order something I did not know existed in audio format. Tolkien's Letters from Father Christmas read by none other than our family favorite, Derek Jacobi!

will save this treasure for next Christmas and enjoy it immensely when
we open it! Unfortunately I think I bought the last one from BCO,
otherwise I would link to it, but the book format is available
elsewhere as probably is the tape format.

Anyway, I just wanted to share the book fever with you - I think I am slowly turning into Desiderius Erasmus who said,

When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.

There's nothing like shopping for good books, especially when they are dirt cheap. Love it!

I, too, am addicted to Book CloseOuts. I just *have* to visit daily to see what's new. Therefore, I create book lists twice weekly and send them to my Yahoo Group. I include info on available coupons, too! I would love to have you join me in the fun of finding great NEW books at USED prices!!

More info is available here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BCOnewbooks

Unfortunately my husband does not share my same addiction. He says if I bring another book in this house then my books and I will be moving.....I don’t think he'd REALLY do that because he'd starve LOL! I love a good book and what makes it even better is when it's cheap!

We really like DK books--they were one of the few publishers of English books we could get when we were overseas.
