I just was on this web site and they have tons of books el-cheapo, including bunches of chick lit. I was playing around the cart and found 6 books from my WL for $21 total (shipping is media and would be about $4, unlike other sites that charge $4 PER BOOK). If you're on MyPoints, it's also on there, 3 points per dollar spent. You can also google some coupon codes for $5 off a $35 purchase. I know we are on PBS so we don't have to BUY BOOKS, but it's tempting when books from your WL are only $2.99 and $3.99 on this site and you KNOW they are coming to you brand new (even with remainder marks and stickers). Just thought I'd pass it along.

Eh, I looked and found more books, so that I could get 9 of my WL books for $36 shipped. That's only $4 per book! I am so tempted. But when does it become "hoarding"? I have SIX ENTIRE shelves of TBR books. Seriously. They are stacked on their ends so more fit. I don't know if this is a sickness or what (I know it's not bad like taking drugs or anything), but it makes me happy to obtain books that are on my list. $4 per WL book is ridonk. So good. So tempting. I've been selling credits off anyway (10 for $28.50) and technically could use that, but that $$ was supposed to be saved for a trip. It doesn't seem right to order NINE MORE BOOKS when I have 6 whole shelves, does it?

OK, I ordered. At first I was going to get 9 for $36 (that includes shipping- I love how they actually charge REAL media rates, it was $5 for 9 books, not EACH BOOK). Instead, I decided to just get 4, which added up to $21 TOTAL. I saw they had "Beautiful Boy" (talked about on the "What are you reading" thread and that clinched it. For $4.99 I could get that and free up 8 spaces on my WL. I also got "Fate and Ms. Fortune" ($3.99), "American Nerd" ($3.99), and "Hollywood Girls Club" ($3.99). All on the WL! I am *sure* I'll be back on there though.

Especially when they're WL books and NEW. Yeah, they may have remainder marks or something, but you (a) know you're getting them and (b) are the first reader. Can't beat that!
