Book hauls

Spring ’14 book haul

AAAAH I MISSED A MONTHLY BLOG POST. Curse you, extremely busy final month of college!

So though I’ve not been blogging, I have still kept up my super human ability to obtain mountains of books that will now be used to decorate my new apartment in Quincy…more on that later.

Like I’ve said before, I’m ok with having mounds of unread books. It’s like having a room (or an apartment) full of possibility. Without further ado, my epic spring semester book haul (before you freak out, most of these were bought for a dollar or less at my favorite used book sale at which I tend to go crazy):
