How NOT to Shop For Books...

Based on Emma's Book Depository shopping spree yesterday.

So everyone only has so much money, yeah? And balancing horses and books with that can be...erm, difficult!

So I filled up my shopping basket with a few "must haves". Total - $80.

Then, not being particularly happy with the total...I decided I'd cull a few.

Not a good idea!

First, I tried the "What books can I live without?"


None got culled. Which meant I promptly tried the "Okay, what do I have to absolutely have or I'll stop breathing?".

It ended with "That one, that one, that one, that one..." for all the books in the cart.

In other words, epic fail. Do not try and cull books from your online shopping basket! They will haunt your dreams if you do! Just accept fate and buy the dang things!

Haha! Love it, emma_kate! It's easy to fill your shopping cut and so darn hard to trim it down. So for me, why bother, you'll buy it later on anyways. :p
