I just recently found the book bazaar and have ordered quite a few books.  I have nearly 100 in my TBR pile and still can't resist coming here for a "deal!!"  My DH says I need another book like I need another hole in my head.  He does not get it that I need to be in a certain mood to read certain books...  He said, "You are definitely moody"  Now what do you think he meant by that?  Ha.   Wende, I'd recognize that jumping frog... I got books in the mail today from you! LOL.

My 5-year old daughter said to me last night, "Mommy, Daddy and I think you need to stop getting books.  They're all over and we think you need to stop."  I laughed and said "Yeah, sure, that'll happen."  And she said, "Really Mommy, we think you need to stop."  Now, here's where I digress and stoop to the level of a 5-year old in defense of my book addiction: "Well, sweetie, you have stuffed animals all over -- maybe YOU need to stop getting those??"

Okay, so the immature side of me crept up!  Oh, how I need help! Hi Wende, my name is Denise, and I am a Book Buying, Deal Grabbing addict.  LOL

Thank goodness my husband doesn't care. Sometimes he'll look at the books and say, We need another bookcase. LOL! We just bought 3 (2 for me and 1 for the kiddo) and they're almost full with books. I've been holding on sending some WL'd books cause of postage.

Saturday I mailed out 7 boxes of books.  Today I mailed out another 6.  Two were regular FIFO requests, while the others were all box swaps.  Plus I have a "deal" package coming.  What fun!!!
