A Series of Bargains
for another week of bargain books bragging rights!
You know that reasoning that bargains don't really save you money if you end up buying something more than you needed in the first place?
Oh, don't I know it well . . . =P
For this week's Bargain Books Bonanza post, I want to show off books which are part of a series. Now, since I have a rule (which, yes, I occasionally break) about reading a series in order, I could theoretically save lots of money by never buying the first books of series at all. And when they are as ridiculously overpriced as new books are these days, that kind of thrift is easy.
It's when the "bargain" books enter the arena that everything gets interesting . . .
I'm really sorry about the bad lighting. My work schedule and my brother's school schedule meant that we couldn't film this during daylight hours.
If this post were a sandwich, the vlog would be the ham, the cheese and the mayo. (I get to be the Cheese. You may vote on which of my brothers is the bigger Ham.)
Now, I haven't just served you an open-faced sandwich. Here is a nice, slightly-toasted thought to cap your reading . . .
Before filming, when I was laying all the books out on the dining room table (including some which I ultimately chose not to feature) and explaining that the best thing about buying bargain books is that one gets to save a lot of money, Cue Card Boy remarked:
"Do you realise how much more money you would have saved if you hadn't bought any of these?"
ROFL!!! Yes, I do, Cue Card Boy! Series books at bargain prices are always a double-edged sword.
