  22. Alysia from Ex Libris

    I would splurge on one book rather than buy many. I would hunt down a copy of the 30th anniversary edition of the Silmarillion that is bound in leather with a slipcase. It’s simply stunning and would lovely with my leather bound copy of the hobbit :) (I have seen this retail anywhere from $75 to $125 so I’m assuming it would eat up most of my $100 budget)

    I tried to make my money stretch but who worries when you are getting the books you want anyway.

    The Strain(Guillermo del Toro) $19.20
    This Burns My Heart(Samuel Park) $13.80
    The Spindlers(Lauren Oliver) $10.10
    The Winter Witch(Paula Brackston) $20.81
    If I should Die(Amy Plum) $17.68
    These Broken Stars(Amie Kaufman) $17.99

    If it were my hard earned dollars,I might have been more frugal with the book prices.But I won the money,so why not get books that I want regardless of price.

    OMG I couldn’t find my number in the master linky anywhere. I looked all over. So I had to put my number in the goal post 181. I am sorry there where just so many names.. I just couldn’t find the one with an x next to my name.

    So my list…. If I had $100 I’d go big. I’d buy Madonna’s Sex book because I have always wanted it 49.95 but they don’t have it and I was going to put the Harry Potter special edition set but for some reason it’s $100?? That is way overpriced. So I’ll pick The Walking Dead Volume 1 and Volume 2 $48.37. These are my choices. Go big or go home right?? I am actually at $108.11 but… I would just pay the 8.11 out of my own pocket is that cheating???
