Since I didn't receive any books for Christmas, again, I had to rectify the situation myself. I was on the fence about the sequel to The Andromeda Strain, but for 50% off I couldn't pass it up.

How can I not love my local Goodwill? Today they were having a buy one get one free on paperbacks, so I got 5 books for the meager sum of $3.73 The Second City book even came with two CDs of great comedy performed by the legends of SC like John Belushi, John Candy and Martin Short.

Look @audraelizabeth more books!!! Lol

RamsFan1963 @britt_brooke Right? It's not like my TBR is going anywhere, it will still be looming over me, giving me dirty looks, waiting for their turn. 5mo

Today's book haul from BAM and Goodwill. I'm really excited to read Wolf Hall, I've heard great things about it. I love Mindy Kaling so I'm sure her book will be lots of fun.

I had to have dental surgery this morning, so I just wanted to go home with my swollen face and read. Of course I have nothing to read, yeah right, so a stop at the used book store and BAM was required.

Some trips to Goodwill I come away with nothing, other times, like today I find many choices (too many really, I left a couple because I wasn't sure I'd like them). I'm going to need another bookcase soon, I'm running out of space and creative ways to set them.

TheReadingMermaid Got some good reads in there 😍 12mo
RamsFan1963 @TheReadingMermaid I'm looking forward to reading Stiff. I haven't read any of Roach's books, but I've heard she's an excellent science writer. 12mo
TheReadingMermaid Ooooo 😗 yaaaasss! 🤩 12mo

TNbookworm I really enjoyed Stiff, Mary Roach is excellent! I need to read more of her books. 12mo
rwmg Have you seen the very dark TV adaptation of the ABC Murders with John Malkovich as Poirot? 12mo
RamsFan1963 @rwmg I don't believe so, I think that's a performance I'd remember. 12mo
rwmg @RamsFan1963 it was a new production from the BBC over the Christmas/New Year break. Perhaps it hasn't made it over the Atlantic yet 12mo
RamsFan1963 @rwmg Maybe not, but I'll check to see if Netflix has it available. Anyone has to be a better Poirot than Kenneth Branagh, in the recent Murder on The Orient Express adaptation. 12mo

Just wondering how many others do this? For both I have a fancy copy, one to match the rest of my series set, and a paperback to loan-only to very most trusted friends.

TheSpineView Yes. Mainly will have ebook or audio book and the physical book.😊 13mo
PippoRanito Yessss! My wallet disagrees but it stands no match against my desires. I NEED to have EVERY copy of Alice in Wonderland that I see. 😁 13mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes, for the Hobbit I have the original paperback I bought in HS, one with a cool cover I found at a sale, and a fancy leather bound version...plus I have the ebook version now too. 😂🤷‍♀️ (edited) 13mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @TheSpineView Yes, I do that too, especially if it‘s a book I loved. 13mo
TsundokuAleax I feel better about my growing collection of P&P and Kushiel books because of lovely people like you. 13mo
julesG Yep! Three copies of Harry Potter 1, three copies of The Graveyard Book, I have a few Jane Eyre copies, and there are some other books that I own at least two copies off. 13mo
sammisho I collect Pride and Prejudice, I have 40 copies! Which is nothing compared to @CrowCAH 13mo
sammisho I have a couple editions of Harry Potter too! 13mo
Librarybelle 🙋🏻‍♀️ I have many of my favorite classics in multiple editions. 13mo
Desha Yup same as everyone I have more than one hard copy for some books and also sometimes the audible version too 📚📚❤️#nevertoomanybooks 13mo
CoffeeNBooks Yes! I have a few copies of my most favorite books! 📚 13mo
TheBookHippie YES. Many. 📖📖📖📖❤️❤️❤️ 13mo
Kalalalatja I do this with Jane Austen‘s books 🙌 13mo
CrowCAH @sammisho very true 🥰 it‘s up to 172 on Litsy #PnPCovers but I got two more over Christmas which I‘ll be posting soon! Yay @TsundokuAleax and @Kalalalatja represent the Jane Austen!!! 13mo
BookishTrish Yup 13mo
Felso I have many copies of each Jane Austen‘s books. 13mo
Patchshank Yep. Some I get based on the art. For instance, I have several copies of Alice in Wonderland because I liked the different art styles. 13mo
DGRachel Oh yes. For some, I collect both US and UK covers, I have multiple editions of Persuasion, Jane Eyre, & The Three Musketeers. Oh, and I have two copies of the same edition of Les Mis-one to read the text and one to have open to the endnotes so I don‘t have to flip back and forth. And that doesn‘t count the books I have in multiple formats (print, ebook, and/or audiobook) 13mo
DGRachel Oh, and we won‘t discuss my Harry Potter “problem”. 😂 13mo
Gissy Here is one!!! I can have more than one copy because I NEED those U.K. Or limited editions! I really need them in my life! 😳📚📚📚😍❤️❤️❤️ 13mo
Daisey This is really interesting me because I‘ve never collected different editions of the same book. I have multiple copies of some for students to read, but the only book I have a few versions of is the Bible. Recently I have started getting duplicates of a few books to have another format, either ebook or audio to go with print, but I still have no plans to just collect editions. 13mo
LokiDokey In our house its the Harry Potter series. We have a hard cover, paperback, audiobook and digital copy of all 7 books. 😜 13mo
GlassAsDiamonds Yes actually...and of the Kushiels books particularly! 😂😂😂😂 (Hardcover signed, hard cover and soft cover and since those are all in storage in Oz .... another set of soft covers here!! 😂😂😂😂 I‘d have that illustrated edition as well if I could find it!). @TsundokuAleax - we‘re in good company here! 13mo
Soubhiville @GlassAsDiamonds and @TsundokuAleax I wish I‘d had the money for the Chosen illustrated when it came out 😢. I‘ll be looking for it down the road, when the price has gone way up I‘m sure! Lol. 13mo
TsundokuAleax @Soubhiville and @GlassAsDiamonds I did not know the illustrated existed until recently and it will probably be life goals now. 13mo
GlassAsDiamonds @TsundokuAleax & @Soubhiville - oh yeah. That (I didn‘t even realise they‘d done released an illustrated edition until a few months ago either! 😭😭😭😭) and Earth Begotten - goals!!!! But then, they do say it‘s good to have goals in life... 😜 Wonder who has the 26 leather bound versions???!!!?? 13mo

It's nice when payday and my day off fall in together. A trip to BAM and Goodwill definitely made going out in the cold dampness worthwhile.
