This picture actually has nothing to do with the bookshop or haul.  I just liked the way the light was hitting my carpet this morning.

This weekend Half Price Books is having a nationwide sale in honor of Memorial Day.  Everything in the store is 20% off.  Which meant that my friend Emily and I were booking (oh yes, booking) it over to our local Indianapolis branch at 11am to put a gash in our summer budgets.

I had been eyeing this Salinger boxset for weeks. On Amazon it goes for around $60 and Half Price had it for $10+ under that. Tack on the promised 20% discount, really I didn't stand a chance.
