book shopping!!

So on the first of the month, employees at Books-A-Million get to enjoy a 30% discount on all items in the store, an upgrade from the normal 20% discount given... So I've gotten into the habit of just buying on the first of the month, rather than throughout the month, as I might otherwise do, and save an extra 10%... it also gives me the second chance to consider the buy... so I bought today!!!
anyhoo, my list of newly acquired books/etc:
1. The Chronicles of Narnia C.S. Lewis (Unabridged Audiobook on 31 CDs)
2. General Howe's Dog Caroline Tiger (History) (My uncle traced back our family history to the sibling of General William Howe and Admiral Robert Howe of the US Revolutionary War-Both were very influential and among the highest of the commanders, and if you go through most History 101 American History Texts you will find their names... The only thing is, they fought for the Crown.)
3. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Roald Dahl (The particular edition I chose to purchase actually matches a set that was released earlier this year, to include The Witches, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. It was the first time in months we recieved a non-movie poster covered book, so I took the opportunity when I could!)
4. Democracy in America Alexis De Tocqueville
5. Mastering Digital SLR Photography David D. Busch (Because you can't learn everything just by tinkering with it!)
6. The Mammoth Book of King Arthur Mike Ashley
7. Le Morte d'Arthur Sir Thomas Malory
8. Irish Fairy and Folk Tales Edited by William Butler Yeats
9. The Phantom of the Opera Gaston Leroux
I also picked up a few nonbooks, of which I might put a post up later with my creations from them!
