School started on the 25th, so I've been really busy, and with internet not always up at the house, I haven't been able to get online much...even at school where I'm there five days a week... and when not in class, working fourteen hours. (not much, but max you can work in workstudy is 15). I haven't even finished my dang short_takes story on LJ, and it's a week late. I feel horrible, but the one thing that's making me feel a TAD bit better is that the person I'm writing for didn't get her one in either. I'm not signing up for the next round. I'm determined to get this one in.

But anyway, last night like the moron I was, I stepped on my phone charger...and totally broke it. I decided to try and get one at dollar general which was where I got the one I broke anyway...walked up there, but decided to go to the library first which was right next to it. I was in there an hour and read about half of AMM's The Doll People. (It's really cute. I recommend it, and there's one other book in the series, and one that's supposed to come out in October)

anyway, getting off track. I had looked on the shelves for any BSC book that I didn't have on my computer and didn't find any. As I was coming out, I noticed two boxes with a ton of YA books... including the BSC books and LS and SVT and SVK that i had seen the one and only time I had been in there. Each book for 10 cents.

Unfortunately, I don't carry ANY cash on me at all... hardly ever. But I dug up a dime and went and paid for Claudia Gets Her Guy. I asked how long hte books were going to be there, and the woman behind the desk asked when i could come back... and I said Wednesday (they're not open on Mondays, and I don't get out until 9:30 on Tuesdays). I picked out 17 books... all BSC and SVK... I think. I don't remember putting any SVT or BSLS up there... and I'll get them all for $1.70

I feel like I won the lottery.

Now I just have to figure out a way to carry them home and figure out where in tarnation I'm going to put them all.
