Buying happiness...

"You can't buy happiness, but you can buy books
and that's kind of the same thing."

So, I splurged and bought a little happiness today in the shape of four new books. Two favorites:










And two books that I've never read:










It didn't cost me a lot of money because I found them used (thank you, Powells!), which makes me even happier. The best part? I now get to curl up in my favorite comfy chair and read them! Any day with a good book in it is a good day. What about you? Bought any happiness lately?

    1. Sounds like you need new bookcases. (I know I do!)

  2. One Second After made me feel like I may not be very useful in an emergency! It definitely made me think. I have not read the others. I hope your new books turn out to be treasures for your collection!

    1. Mmm, sounds wonderful. (Although I'd probably go broke.)

  4. Happiness does come in book form. :)

    I had to pick up a book that we are reading for my praise team and I had some money left over on my gift card so hello new Nick Harkaway book! :)

  5. I'll be interested to see what you make of Oliphant - I've got it on my TBR pile, but I've heard terrible things! Even so, can't wait to read it myself :)

    1. I hope what you've heard isn't true; I haven't started it yet, but my fingers are crossed that it's good.
