(FTW) Finds This Week: #2

Finds This Week: #2


"Deals, FTW!"


This is my version of all those "weekly haul" memes. (More Information)

This last week I did some more thrift shopping, while in search of household items and furniture, among those I hit two thrift stores and Target, and found a few things to add to my collections.


Thrift Store #1:

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan $.50
I have been meaning to read this book for the longest time, my mother loves Amy Tan, and while I hate it I can admit I haven't read one of her books. I do however know the story of this one, from seeing the movie as a child. (Yes I can still recall all 4 of the stories.)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J.K. Rowling $.50
I haven't touched a Harry Potter book in years, I always meant to start my own collection. While this isn't my ideal copy, for $.50 it will do for now. Considering the pages are in much better condition than the cover.

Thrift Store #2:

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) by J.K. Rowling $.50
I laughed when I found this in another thrift store on the same day as the Sorcerer's Stone. Like that book, not my ideal copy, but in great condition (minus the cover).

13 Little Blue Envelopes (Little Blue Envelope, #1) by Maureen Johnson $.50
I love this book and I have read this series, however I didn't either of the books.


Lexx: Season 1 & 2 $10
I know this series is sort of.. an acquired taste, to put it simply. I've seen some of the first season and found it interesting. It's a bit more adult in the Sci-fi area than I'd watch, but I'm no stranger to the cult following it has. For $10 I'll give it a try.

Hope everyone had a great week!


  1. Nice haul this week. I loved the Potter series and the joy luck club. enjoy.

  2. Amy Tan is the one I am familiar with! enjoy them all.

  3. Awesome finds! I enjoyed the Joy Luck Club and hope you do too. I haven't heard of Lexx - looks interesting, and that's a great deal. Happy reading and viewing!

  4. Great haul! I loved Harry Potters, and adding my own copies to my collection of books was one of the best thing I ever did as a reader. I often flip through them or re-read my favorite scenes!

  5. You are in for a treat with The Joy Luck Club!!

  6. The Joy Luck Club is a very good read. Have a good week and enjoy all your new books!

  7. Hope you enjoy the Joy Luck Club. I promised myself to reread it and refresh my memory!
