So just got home from celebrating Independence Day the way our founding fathers would have - by buying books! Seriously, [personal profile] everchangingmuse and I trekked over the mountain to the Green Valley Book Fair, where once again we both managed to bring home tons of books for (relatively) little money. Here's what I scored (All prices US dollars):

Title Cover Price What I Paid
Hagakure
The Book of the Samurai
$9.00 $3.00
Sputnik Sweetheart $14.00 $3.50
Wizard's Holiday $6.95 $2.50
Wizards at War $6.95 $2.50
DragonArt
Fantasy Characters
$9.99 $4.00
DragonArt
Mythical Monsters
$9.99 $4.00
Not Another Teen
Knitting Book
$14.95 $4.00


Total I would have paid in a normal bookstore: $71.83 + tax
Total I did pay today: $23.50 + tax

I love the Green Valley Book Fair.

I am being constantly amazed by the people over at help_haiti. The outpouring of talent. The outpouring of money being offered up.

The deal is people offer stuff. Fic, art, graphics, random stuff... And they set a starting bid. Then people bid on it. Auctions end at noon (EST) on Jan 20th. Winners then donate the money to one of the listed charities (things like Red Cross, Doctors w/o Borders, etc). They show proof of donation and they get stuff.

I'm offering up a knitted teddy bear HERE if anyone's interested. And hey, Takarazuka fen on my flist - I'm pretty sure I could also do a 'Zuka-esqu tail-coat. Y'know, if anyone wanted to bid. Just saying.

I think it's a wonderful idea, and if even half the transactions go through, there's going to be a ton of money raised.
