I splurged on books!

I planned to go to our local independent bookstore, Chaucer's, and purchase two YA books. I buy YA then donate them to our school libraries, which I totally use as a justification to spend the money. At least I'm honest.

Well, I didn't buy two books, I bought 8. Yes, 8. They've all been recommended to me by bloggers that I follow and the only reason I didn't buy more was that the store didn't have the other books that I wanted (and the list is long so it's a good thing they weren't on the shelves).
