The Happiness $6 Can Bring

Well I'm on my way to making good on my resolution to read more classic novels. Tonight I finished my first one, Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. It was just a quick read but that's one down and many more to go. I've been waiting on some other books to show up in my mailbox that I ordered the day after Christmas but they haven't arrived yet. So tonight around 7 I made a trip to Barnes & Noble to pick up my next bestseller read. I had a hard time finding this particular book so I decided to pick up another book and quicky because I had an appointment at the gym at 7:30. So I hurried and grabbed another book that is on my list to read and went to the front counter. Up at the front, the book series I had been looking for was all there and I just decided to buy both books because I was in a hurry. When the cashier opened my 'second choice' book there was $6 cash just sitting behind the counter!!! How's that for luck???? Things like this never happen to me. . . ever! So my $16 bill ended up being $10. I always knew Thursday were my favorite days becuase it's the beginning to the weekend. This made my night and just added to my love of Thursdays.


  1. Keep posting the good books...I would love to add them to my list. I thought GG night was your favorite day. :)

  2. I also second that I thought Monday was your favorite.

    Okay we so need to go to the library. Think of the money we'd save.

  3. So whatcha readin'? I highly recommend the Library - FREE books that you don't have to keep if you don't like. ! ;) And they have an online service where you can request the book and then they email you when it is ready to pick up. Then you don't have to wander around looking for call numbers.
