Book Haul from Book Outlet

Last month I saw a Facebook ad from Book Outlet announcing a sale – get 15% off your order and free shipping on orders of $35 or more.  The ad worked and I headed over to the website to see what books looked interesting…well, as a reader, most of the books I clicked on were books I wanted.  It’s like giving beer to an alcoholic or candy to a baby.  There’s no saying, “I’ll just get a book or two.”  Instead I bought 11 books!  Actually, the price for the 11 books wasn’t that bad.  I ended up paying around $47. Woohoo!

After placing the order came the dreaded waiting time.  Since it was free shipping I had to wait 8 days to get my books, but it seemed much loooonger than that!

    • Thanks for sharing the link! I’ll have to order some because I love the covers you used on the books I bought. Makes them feel so much safer from wear and tear.

      I enjoyed filming it, although it’s hard trying to remember what the books are about. Hopefully as I record more, I’ll be more comfortable in front of the camera. And yes, that coffee mug is awesome! I got it from Amanda a few years back and thought it was perfect to use in the video. 🙂
