This weeks BTT:
Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.
Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?
(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)
While I don’t live in the U.S, I am supposed to receive some money as part of the government’s economic stimulus package as part of their effort to stimulate the economy. Unsurprisingly, I’m planning to stock up on some books because a) it stimulates the economy like the money is meant for, and b) since I’ve stopped studying English I miss buying up a mountain of books for each semester, and, c) because books are reusable entertaining which is good in these hard times. Oh, it was ever so blissful to buy up big in bookstores and justify the cost because they were my ‘textbooks’ – the best kind of textbooks in my opinion!
I don’t have a set list of the books I want to buy but I do want to get these soon:
- Let the right one in – John Ajvid Lindqvist
- The Master and Margarita – Mikhail Bulgakov
- The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath
- The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Whether second-hand and brand new, I hope to go buy a copy of these some time soon so I can add them to my frighteningly high TBR piles that is threatening to topple over and bury me alive soon.
