I’M ABOUT TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER, BOOK NERDS

Do you like books!?
OF COURSE YOU DO

Do you like reading books?
DUUUUUH!

Do you collect books and let them sit on your shelf!?
WHAT IS THIS!? AMATEUR hOUR? OF FUCKING COURSE!

Do you spend WAAAAAAY too much money on books even though they’re totally worth it but holy fucking shit fifteen dollars is the median and why is the world so effortlessly cruel?
Who’s got two thumbs and an empty wallet! Yes yes and yes!

WELL HAVE I GOT A SOLUTION FOR YOU

Thriftbooks is an amazing online site that sells used books! These books are, for the most part, in great condition. I’ve used this website for everything from textbooks to fiction to everything else in between! It has a wide selection with an even wider selection of options per book!
You want softcover? They’ve got it! Hardcover? Of course! Audio? Why not!
Hell! They even sell the books in other languages!
You might say to me, humanity, why are you telling us this? We already have barnes and noble!
Because, my poor, naive friend, thriftbooks sells the majority of it’s books for under four dollars.
That’s right. You heard me. Under. Four. Dollars.
And right now, they’re having a huge deal!
2 books for $7
3 books for $10
4 books for $12

But wait! There’s more!

If you leave a book in your cart for long enough, chances are you’ll be alerted when a seller nearby, for a cheaper price, has the same book! You’ll get it cheaper and faster, with less waste of paper and time!
And prices change! That book that would have cost you $3.79 one day might be $3.45 the next, and man oh man isn’t that the best thing to see when you check up on your cart.
So what are you waiting for, book lovers! Go! Go shop!
Go and rule the world!
Be the book lovers I know you can be!



I just ordered my first batch of books from this site. I was astounded by how cheap I could get hardbacks. Yes, they're used, but that doesn't matter to me. And by shopping with them you're supporting a good cause.
The free shipping reward is only open for Americans, but with the discount codes and other bonuses you're able to get that won't really be much of a problem in the long run.

Finished reading the DaVinci Code yesterday.

Seriously? It isn't that good. It took me about 2 months to read! I see how it can be a fun movie, but it didn't keep me very engaged when I was reading it... it is a kind of 'National Treasure' or 'Sahara' kind of adventure. I'm curious about the film, but the book did not answer to all the hype, not for me anyway.

Meh...

Had a good day, not that I've done much. Just put out the icons for you guys, hope you like them, are in the previous post.

Have gotten positive reactions to the christmas presents I gave this year, which is very nice. :) Isen and [livejournal.com profile] beluga  loved their signed copies of "There and Back Again, an actors Tale" by Sean Astin. Knew Isen would love it, as she wanted the book, the sell for [livejournal.com profile] beluga  would be the signature. They were both really happy.

Still waiting for some other feedback, but that might have to wait until morning.

I got a lot of cool stuff this year. My parents got me a editing program and a web-camera for the computer, which rocks! So now I'll be editing my films like mad when I'm done with my exams in January, and get the moth off. :)

Got a headset with a microphone for the computer from aunt and uncle in Poland, also much needed.

Aunt in Germany got me a cute sweater, mittens and really soft scarf.

My cousin cave me a funky rock, that you put on this thingy, and it changes color. Very pretty, I like stuff like that.

[livejournal.com profile] beluga  got me a very nice top and the first two books in the LiveShip trilogy, muchly appreciated. Love Robin Hobb's writing, and need something to do in London after christmas since I only have one day of school a week. She also gave me some X2 clippings

Ivy got me the Keane - Hopes and Fears CD, very nice and calm music. She also gave me a framed picture of me holding her son, when he was only a month old. Really sweet.

Isen gave me a Glitter Lamp and Schindler's List  on DVD, actually never seen the entire film, so am looking forward to it.

Camelia gave me a Toblerone bar and the Van Helsing DVD. Gonna watch it soon.

I also got a fondue set from some acquaintances of my parents, very cool. Will test it out soon.

 

That's it for this year, very pleased. My parents loved the stuff I'd gotten them. I gave them two pressies each, my mom was worried that I'd spent too much. Silly. Might write more tomorrow, shold actually be focusing all my energy on the second essay this week, so we'll see how far I'll get tomorrow. :)

HAVE A NICE WEEK!

Well, I’m done with the Tawny man series. Finished on Tuesday.

 

That book was really tugging at my emotions. Hell, the whole series did that. Now, as you may or may not know I haven’t read the LiveShips, so I might not have gotten all the clues, but anyway, here is what I think about what I have read.

 

Go through the Skill Pillar )



 

It’s kind of weird to think back that I wanted to give up half way through the first one. I am really happy I didn’t and kept with it Will probably re-read it sometime later.

 

Now, lets get the discussions started.

Got back from the camping trip about an hour ago. I'm rather tired, even tho we got to sleep this morning and I went to bed rather early yesterday compared to the other nights.
Belgua and my aunt have got the cold, my mom and I are starting to get it. Might be why I'm tired... don't know.

Anyways we had a nice time yesterday. Left early and drove for a while. Stopped in a little town and had a look in the shops. I just bought two tapes for my video camera, and a 5 pack of mini-disks. I was a nice day, the sun was shining and the temperature was at a comfortable level.
When we eventually arrived at the camp site we just took it easy. Beluga and I watched a little tv, there was an "Osbournes" marathon, so that was on much of the time. We also read our books.
In the eventing we went to a restaurant, but they didn't really have any food that Beluga and I liked, so after a discussion we went up to a diner at the other end of the grounds. Chicken and fries, always good. :)
After we'd eaten we returned to the camper van and watched some more TV, and read. Eventually Beluga and I went to look for the parental-units who were by the camp-fire. (It's a tradition in Germany to have camp fires at easter.) Found them, had a look at the fire, and returned to the camper van.
All in all it was a pretty easy-going day. I didn't mind it at all, and Belgua seemed happy reading her "Sharpe" book. (I'm still reading LOTR for the 3rd time.)

Today we got to sleep in, did me good. We just took it easy and got on our way after a while. Now we're back in Hamburg. Don't really have any plans for the rest of the day, might be just as well; give the sick a chance to get better. :)

Another quiet day alone, while Camelia is at school. I really should be reading my books, but am afraid i'll fall asleep in the middle of a sentence. Will read after I'm a little more awake. Yeah, I know it's late, but I didn't get much sleep last night...

On Friday Camelia and I went to see "The Leauge of Extraordianry Gentlemen" or "LXG" as it's also called. it was fun, but far from extraordinary. We were entertained, and some of the cast members weren't that bad looking. Camelia has a thing for Stuard townsend, and I really enjoyed his character, so we were both satisfied. The movie is very simplistic, and runs out of steam before the end, but it has alot of great quotes, and that's always a plus in my book.

Sunday we went to see "Kill Bill, Volume 1." just to see what all the fuzz was about. We were both satisfied, and our bloodthirst quenched for a good month. ;P
It's a very bloody movie, and nothing for the weak of heart. Camelia turned away from the screen more than a couple of times. I'm not a big tarantion fan, just found out that "Reservoir Dogs" was enjoyable a couple of months ago...

Ah, the house staff is gonna have a meeting, gotta finish.
Till next time.
