thrift haul // books

I have been avoiding the book shelves in the thrift store until I can read and move out some of my vast modest collection I currently own. However, I stopped by recently and hit the motherlode! I love baseball books, so Moneyball by Michael Lewis and It's Outta Here by Bill Gutman had to come home with me. At one point I was really into floral arranging and I think I'd like to get back into that, so I snagged a vintage The Art of Flower Arranging by Jan Hall and Sarah Waterkeyn and Designs by Nature by Terence Moore for some inspiration. Insomnia by Stephen King is actually one I haven't read, and I believe this is a first edition. The King pickings are slim since I've read so much of his work.
But my absolute favorite find was The Total Book of Houseplants by Russell C. Mott. The illustrations are gorgeous and I'm excited to glean what knowledge I can from it. Stay tuned!

What great things have you found lately while thrifting?

latest thrift finds // tn

While out in Tennessee, I stopped by a local Goodwill. I'm pretty far from a major city so thrifting can be hit or miss out here, but I did find some neat things! The black checked shirt dress is from Old Navy and will work nicely with a pair of red flats. That little sweater is going to be adorable with dark wash jeans and boots this holiday season, and the full skirt is vintage with such a great print. I can't wait to wear it to the office with black pumps and a blush top. And if you ask Jess, I'm obsessed with tiny things, hence the little nesting baskets. They'll go nicely with my tiny lazy susan.

thrifted: book haul & reading update

lucky bandit blog katelyn carter

I have a problem. I can't stop thrifting books. My TBR pile is overflowing, I have books stashed everywhere, and still I buy cheap books.

Anywho, here's what I picked up in my latest thrift store visit. Let's start with the bad: Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Sigh. I know. I bought it because it had such a cult following, and even though reviews are terrible, I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment. Prey by Michael Crichton is one I've been meaning to read after reading Jurassic Park. I've become quite the little Crichton fan, but I'm still slowly working my way through The Lost World, so I'm not sure when I'll start this. Laughter in the Dark by Nabokov was one I hemmed and hawed over in the aisle. I'm still not sure about it.

Ghost Story by Peter Straub comes highly recommended by Stephen King. We all know I'm a massive Stephen King fan, so I immediately snatched this one off the shelf. He could probably recommend reading boot tracks in dirt and I'd do it.

What am I currently reading? The Lost World by Michael Crichton, which is dragging on and on, The Stand by Stephen King, and The Passage by Justin Cronin. I've not had much time to sit and read, but I get a few pages done here and there.

Are we friends on Goodreads yet?
