Ladybug Loot/Book Haul (32)

I tried not to buy too many books since it is around Christmas time and I should by buying for others and not myself. But... the price of working in a used bookstore and having an employee discount is the fact that every time I work, I end up buying SOMETHING. At least it cut down on my visits to the store since I only go there when I work or have a book club function :) I don't think I did TOO bad this week... you be the judge.

I won a $25 Donation to an Animal Shelter or Sanctuary of my choice from Patricia Rosemoor. I donated to the Humane Society of Marion County. My local no-kill shelter. She also sent me some amazing ornaments:

Definitely a great prize during the holidays. :)
