I hope you enjoy all of your new books and the music :D.

 

Thank you. :D I just wanted the Coldplay CD, but then in order to get free p&p, I was ` forced` to order some books too. :blush::lol:

I think this is the best book-buying excuse I've seen :giggle2: hope you enjoy your new books!

And once I`d got enough books to qualify for the free P&P, I kept buying, cos then it was ` buy more books with free postage ! Yay ! ` :blush::lol:

I laughed out loud when I read this :lol::rolol::giggle2:.

I'm totally guilty of thinking similar things though :).

I must stop thinking of these loopholes ! There will always be books to buy and I don`t need to buy them all in one go. However.... :lol:

 

Another loophole I favour, is ` That`s a really good price and it`s out of print, so I should get it now while it`s still available`. :mrgreen:

That's true.. it's just hard.. when you want to buy all the books :D.

 

I also think sometimes 'Am I likely to encounter it again at a good price like that?'. And in quite a few cases, the answer is genuinely no. Sometimes it's yes, but.. I must still have it :giggle2:.

She's lovely, and yes I agree with Athena about the temptation of a book not being available at such a good price another time!

Gorgeous kitty!  She looks very content :smile2:

 

Loopholes and book-buying go hand in hand!  And absolutely acceptable ;)

Yes , she's a tortie princess ! :)

 

She got admired again yesterday ; a couple of neighbours came over for coffee and cake, which was really nice. One of them brought some cat treats too ! :)

 

I haven't been reading much lately ; I've had a string of migraines, and either haven't read at all or just feel I can concentrate enough to read the papers. We, not that this has stopped me buying - I did read the first Sigrid Something book by Margaret Maron, and got a couple more in the series. Written in the 80s, it's a series about a female nypd detective in New York. Not perfect, but still v. enjoyable. :)

Sorry to hear about your migraines :(. I hope you can concentrate more on reading soon :). I hadn't read a book in over 2 weeks but yesterday managed to read a children's book (a library loan). I'm glad you enjoyed the book about the detective in New York :). I hope you enjoy the others in the series too.

Poor Xiao-Xiao`s off to the Vet on Wednesday for surgery; she had her jabs and check-up last week , and has something called ` neck lesions` in her teeth. She needs at least two teeth out, poor little girl. :(
