I love a good bargain!

Even though I so rarely find them. Which makes them that much better!

Last night I drug hubby out to Barnes & Noble to spend the gift card that I got for Christmas. Since I immediately got a Kindle for my birthday, I knew it was going to suck buying a book again, but I didn't want it to go to waste. It's not like I wouldn't read them. I've read like 6 books in 3 months.

I picked out 2 books, which I proceeded to buy. But then spotted the "nooks" and their covers. I wondered if the covers would fit my Kindle. Lucky for me I keep it in my purse at all times. (Maybe that's why my purse could double as an anchor?)

Let me just say that I've been eyeing on Amazon the Kate Spade Kindle covers. Tehy are $69.99 + shipping. I just can't bring myself to pay that for them. Even though they are discounted from the original $85, that is still a lot, even for designer. I just couldn't do it.

WELL, B&N had them on sale. For 75% off. AND THEY FIT MY KINDLE!!!!! I stewed over it through the night. And all day. I couldn't stop thinking about it. Guess where I went on my way home from work?!


  1. That is so cute, and for 75% off you really got a bargain. I have an iPad and I was so excited when I saw the cute Vera Bradley iPad covers. I like the cover more than the iPad! LOL.

    It says "Evelyn" since she is my partner at The Bib Shoppe in case you are wondering!

  2. So glad you identified yourself, Patti! I was wondering who "Evelyn" was! :)
