I know what you’re thinking. National Treasure, right?
Well, that’s about how good I feel after my finds. 🙂
No gold for me. Just books & music. And I’m quite pleased with them. (Many thanks to my good friend, D!)
Check out my newly acquired trove below:
I’ve been a Food Network/TV Chef fan for as long as I can remember. I even remember Julia reruns from when I was growing up.
1. Mastering the Art of French Cooking: After watching Julie & Julia, I knew I had to get this book. I’m not the biggest fan of French cuisine…but I attribute that mostly to the fact that I haven’t dabbled much with it.
2. Joy of Cooking: I’ve been hunting this book for similar reasons to #1. But to find a copy for under $7? It definitely made my day!
I’ve often heard that people become more successful, generally speaking, when they read works and biographies of successful people.
3. Steve Jobs: One word – Apple.
4. Who Moved My Cheese?: I’ve heard several great things about this one. Plus, it looks like a short read. That’s a bonus in my book. (Pun intended.)
5. Onward: Starbucks. Global win. Thank you, Howard. (This could definitely be a Babs reference for my fellow What’s Up, Doc? fans.)
The main reason for visiting half price books was to check out the music clearance section. Needless to say, I think I scored big.
6. Moulin Rouge: I bought this mostly because it has a KILLER tango track…and the whole disc was the price of one song on iTunes.
7. Chris Cagle – Play it Loud: It’s Chris Cagle. C’mon. Duh.
8. George Strait: King George. Classic country.
9. Five for Fighting: I have the 100 Years track. I like the sound. I figured it would be a good experiment for $2.
10. Reba McEntire’s Greatest Hits: The big red hair says it all. It’s Reba. Again…duh.
I’m still in the market for a good record player. But I don’t think it hurts to increase my vinyl collection a little bit at a time until the right player comes along. Especially for $1. That’s better than the value menu selections at fast food chains.
11. Barbra Streisand – Stoney End: One can almost never go wrong with an “older” version of Babs. And it was cheap vinyl. (Not the flooring.)
