What happens when you leave me in a bookstore for over two hours? I go crazy buying books, that's what. And what happens when I receive a $10 voucher from my online magazine shop - Zinio? I go crazy hauling some mags, obviously. And if both of these situations happen in same the time? I end up extremely happy.
That's basically the highlight of my week - hauling on several reads and reading until the sun shows up the next day. Since a couple of months ago I stopped reading novels and magazines completely in order to focus on my university entrance exams. But now that that's over and done with I thought what better way to spend your free time than to get new books to read? Nothing, really - considering it's ramadan (which for me means the activities I can do are limited by my inability to eat nor drink during daytime) and all my friends are busy with either uni things or getting into uni...
So yeah, I hauled.
My bookstore haul consisted of two magazines, a novel, a biography, a true-story compilation and a motivational book. Talk about variety, huh? The Originals by Cat Patrick was a book I got a week earlier from book depository but I thought I'd include it here as well.
As for my Zinio haul, I had to search for a while for several magazines so I could make the best of my $10 voucher, so imagine my happiness when I found that Cosmopolitan UK magazines were sold for 99 cents each! I don't usually buy Cosmo but for under a dollar each how could I resist? In the end I bought four issues of Cosmo UK - consisting of the current issue and three pasts issues, along with the latest issue of Women's Health (not shown).
With the exception of the July edition of Cosmo being $1.99 for some reason (but still a major bargain), the grand total of my Zinio haul came to just a few cents off of $10. That's an efficient use of a ten dollar voucher, if I do say so myself...
And thus my whole week consisted of reading, reading, tweeting (mostly about my reads), and more reading. I was in bookworm heaven.
