Loot

 I am participating in summer reading this year. As usual. And guess what? I won a prize. :D

Tote bag

The adult summer reading theme this year is Between the Covers. Sounds sexy, doesn't it? I won a tote bag with the theme written above an open book.

Gift card


I also got a gift card to Powell's Bookstore! It's a local bookstore that is well loved.

Books!!!

With the $25 gift card I was able to get four used books and one new book, only having to pay about $3 out of pocket.

Discworld: Small Gods by Terry Pratchett
Discworld: Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett
Discworld: Tiffany Aching: The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett
Ireland's Traditional Crafts by David Shaw-Smith
Tortall and Other Lands by Tamora Pierce

I've been geeking out over the Tortall books lately, so I was particularly happy to get the Tamora Pierce book. And by geeking out, I mean that I've actually got Tortall maps on my bedroom door... It's also the only one that I went ahead and got a new copy of it (they didn't have any used) rather than getting two inexpensive used books in its place.

If you won a $25 gift card for a bookstore, how would you spend it?

Love that tote bag! Very cool. At first glance, I thought that one book's title was "Ireland's Traditional CATS" -- LOL!

That would also be an interesting book. :)

Oooops...I just noticed that I wrote one of the book titles wrong. I wrote "Tortall and Other Tales" instead of "Tortall and Other Lands"...oops.

I started that one today. Superb writing, as usual. :)

Congrats! Look at the loveliness. I can't wait to hear what you say about your Terry Pratchett books. I'm sooo jealous that you get to read them for the first time ;-)

I'm sure I'll have fun with them. Actually I did start listening to the Wee Free Men audio book, but then didn't get a chance to finish it. So I already know most of the story...just not quite the ending.
