I spent a frenzied 30 minutes this afternoon dumping book after book into my shopping cart at Book Close Outs this afternoon. I ended up with 11 books and only paid about $64 including shipping! I got a few NYC tour guides, since I'm hoping to get a trip in next spring, as well as a bunch of other books about NY and its history. I honestly can't even remember all of them. Will post when I get my order. I love shopping online. When the package comes, it's like Christmas! Speaking of Christmas, I started my shopping officially today by buying a book called Sunday Money about Nascar, for my brother. My goal is to finish my shopping by December 1.
I also bought a book at work today called The Grand Tour, which is an architectural tour of the world by country. It has all of the major structures of every style and every time period. I bought one for my parents too since they're going on a trip to Greece, Turkey and Egypt in a few months. I know it'll be a book I pick up constantly, just to browse through. In case anyone's interested, here's the listing on amazon: Amazon.com: The Grand Tour (Taschen 25th Anniversary): Books: Harry Seidler. It's 576 pages and Amazon is only charging $10.39 - definitely a great deal.
