Booking Through Thursday - Windfall

btt button

Here is this week's Booking Through Thursday question:

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.)

Well I am one of the lucky ones and we are getting a refund. If I could do whatever I wanted with it, I would spend my money on books. I would first go to my local indie bookstore and buy and then I would go and walk around BAM for awhile. I would be looking for:

  • Sleeping in Daylight by Elizabeth Flock
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
  • The Help by Kathryn Stockett
  • Life Without Summer by Lynne Griffin
  • Terminal Freeze by Lincoln Child
  • Honolulu by Alan Brennert
  • Tomato Girl by Jayne Popek
  • Need by Carrie Jones
  • Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas
  • Second Opinion by Michael Palmer
I would also just look around and buy whatever I found interesting. It would be so fun and so relaxing! I would also look at sewing books (I love to sew) and cook books (they are so fun) and cool book/reading gadgets (might get some of those cover things I saw the other day on another blog).

But alas, we will have insurance and property taxes and a new water softener to buy, so there will be very little to spend. But I think we will have a little to spend and I will be buying books!

Tomato Girl and P&P&Z are two books I'd love to get hold of, too.
