-1 The Painted Lady, this was apart of December’s haul and she somehow snuck her way in to this pic, attention whore.  I don’t have time to retake this picture as I’m headed to work and this is the 2nd month in a row I’ve snuck in an extra book 😛

I also acquired another version of The Host by Stephenie Meyer BECAUSE I had the paperback/movie cover version and I couldn’t resist when I saw the original hardcover edition for only $1.75!  I’m a sucker for hardcovers!

As well, I use to own a paperback of Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer but a friend (no longer a friend) once borrowed it and due to previous statement, I clearly never got it back.  I was very sad about this loss as I am a fan of Twilight and am very anal about my belongings.  This was AT LEAST 6/7 years ago.  I’m still mad, I still want my book back, hmph.

Hope everyone had a great month buying books!  How many did you acquire this haul?

I literally bought 0 books this month and somehow I still acquired a decent amount.  Unfortunately, most of them were ebooks which sucks because I really dislike reading ebooks (although I’m still grateful) so it’s gonna be hard getting through some of them and I might end up pushing them to the side for a bit for that reason alone 😦
