I can't believe I did this!

I went to Costco tonight with a neighbour. Now they don't have that good a romance section there - not for the hard core romance fan I am.
But they did have one book I wasn't planning on getting. But it was such a good price, half the cover price, I couldn't turn it down. And I have met the author now.

Justification - thy name is book addict.

High Noon by Nora Roberts has been added to my own personal pile.

'til later

Costco doesn't have a great selection (usually best sellers) but their prices are fantastic. Makes it hard to resist.

Yeah, I get in trouble every time I walk that book aisle in Costco.

you know, you should really enjoy it when it's at such a good price... think of me who can't buy any books at Costco, because there's nothing!

C2: I'm learning to justify anything. For instance - all the books I picked up in Dallas - most I didn't pay for so the book budget isn't really over it's limit (*snort* as if I HAD a book budget)

It is hard to resist! In fact it was impossible. Thankfully that was the only one I saw that I was interested in.

Ames: *g* but then you didn't just pick up over 90 books a couple of weeks ago. And you are so good at sticking to your no books until you read a certain number - unless of course you're in a different city *LOL*

Rosie: One wonders how they can sell them at such low prices doesn't one?

Nath: My sympathies on not having it near you. That was the first time I've been to Costco in quite some time. And the last time I didn't buy a book - so it was OK. And I'll enjoy it alright. I loved Rosie's post on how much it 'spoke' to her

I rarely by at Costco unless I need a bestseller. Recently bought HP7 on audio (only $40! - cheapest I've seen anywhere), and I usually buy Tess Gerritsen there - her new hard covers, and I've picked up some 2-in-1 reprints as well.
