Okay so yeah, the picture is a bit misleading when it comes to just how much I got this week book wise. For months, I'd been saving up Amazon GCs from swagbucks, epoll, and Amazon Associates and at the end of July I had enough to buy: Kindle Wi-Fi with Special Offers; Extended Warranty; Laptop case/bag; Laptop mouse; and all the kindle books listed above, under bought. I know some people say the $25 saved isn't worth the whole annoying offers and stuff but honestly, the offers and screensavers don't bother me at all. Plus, that $25 saved can buy me as many as 25 books and I'm pretty sure I'll come across an offer sooner or later that'll save me even more money. But anyway, totally in love with my kindle and especially the fact that I can use Netgalley now, since reading on the computer for too long bothers my head and eyes. Also a big thanks to Emily, Michelle, Steph, and Cidney for the books! That copy of The Near Witch, yeah, won a pre-order of that sucker back in November! That isn't all I got this week, though. I also got some stuff that I ordered for college. Here's a peek, in case you're curious:

And now you are all aware of my black and white fetish. But no worries, I've got some cute purple and green stuff I'll be getting for accent color. :P In the photo you can see the laptop bag and mouse I got from Amazon. Also some really trendy storage boxes, from Walmart, which I've already started loading with books I'm going to take. Yep, that's right, my books are going to college with me in style!

But enough of all that, hope you are all having a great weekend and got some really awesome stuff in your mailboxes this week!

The Near Witch is so good! I just know you'll love it. Daughter of Smoke and Bones looks great, can't wait to hear your thoughts on it! And congrats on the Kindle and all those ebooks. If you can buy 25 extra books with your money saved, then the ads wouldn't bother me either. :)

What an amazing week for you. I'd never be able to save that much it'd totally burn a hole in my pocket. Thanks for sharing. Here's My IMM. Happy Reading!

Yay for your brand-spanking-new Kindle!! And look at all those books you got too! Awesome.

Enjoy them and good luck with the college packing. Just remember, books are heavy, so pack those boxes lightly :)

Candace said...

Wow! What a week! YAY for the kindle! My ereader broke and I miss NetGalley and Galley Grab, but on the plus side I have less pressure because less review books! And I'm enjoying that part.
I love the stuff you got for college. The black and white is cool and purple for an accent color will look good!
And I'm SO jealous you got Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I WANT WANT WANT!
Enjoy your books and kindle!
