Todays Haul (3)

OK I think that this whole second hand shopping might have taken a nasty turn. Not only do I wonder if maybe I am going a bit to often but the prices seems to be a whole lot more expensive at the moment. Although I picked up 12 books, 2 groovy T-shirts, and a new pot. I spent far more than I had expected. Is a bargain still a bargain when it goes over budget? sure each piece was cheap for what it is but still ...

Ok for the record, todays haul (in words not pictures because I can't be bothered taking photos and loading them up)

- 2 T-Shirts, 1 one from Deus Ex Machina, 1 new individually printed black chest bonds.
- 1 big pot, needed because I accidently burnt my other big pot trying to make popcorn and since then everything I have been trying to cook has started sticking to the bottom.
- 12 books: (listed for Treena and my records lol)
Gateway - Frederik Pohl
Here there be Dragons - James A Owen (the cover sold me)
Witch Week, Charmed Life, Wild Robert - Diana Wynne Jones
The Magic Finger - Roald Dahl
Tashi and the Genie - Anna Fienberg
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell - Susanna Clark (on dads recommendation)
Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone - JK Rowling (for a gift)
The Complete Homeopathy Handbook
Insects and Reptiles
Dinotopia - Beautiful hardback picture book

Each in great condition and very much wanted. I guess this is one of those times I need to just say budget be blown.

(I'm fairly sure I recommended Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell as well. If I didn't, I am doing so now, but retroactively, so you will always remember my having recommended it just after I read it in 2004.)

Nice haul of Diana Wynne Jones books, too! You can't go past those when you find them.

YES cause thats how it works lol. Nup pretty sure you didn't recommend it but good to know you would have. I agree DWJ is to good to pass up BUT I got home a realised that I already had a copy of 'Witch Week' so now I am trying to think of who I know that may like it.
