Oh the temptations.. And Evil Bookstores!


I'm sad. Hence the crying bunny. WHY DO BOOKSTORES ARE SO EVIL!!! Don't they understand that college students are broke and they have to put pretty covers up front so you have to look them in the eyes and hear them say: "Buuuuuuuuuuyyyyy meeeeeeeeee!!!" Definitely reminds me of Gollum but much, MUCH better looking. 

No but seriously. I went to Barnes & Nobles during the lunch just to buy my sister a gift for her birthday and this is the first thing that I see that catches my eye:


WHY YOU GOTTA ME LIKE THAT MATE???


John freaking Green has a Deluxe Box with all of his best selling books! I didn't see a price tag but I'm pretty sure that's exactly what I would have spend on food for 2 weeks (Hello Ramen Noodles. Again) I have to be in the mood to buy something but when it comes to books, this is what happens when I walk into the store:


So now I'm back at work because I didn't buy the set. And I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to. I should feel proud but just knowing that those pretty books won't be a part of my bookshelf, makes me cry. Hence the crying bunny :(

Oh yeah and one more thing. This is what really put me over the edge to be sad. So while you read this, I will be in the corner, crying. Because I'm broke and can't buy pretty books :P

  1. OH, That's so pretty! I saw an entire collection of Louise Rennison books this week for just £10 but I was strong and walked away. I'm so proud of myself.

  2. I feel your pain. I am broke as can be and whenever I go to the bookstore there are just so many books!! I can only afford to buy to, at most, but there are just so many beautiful books that are screaming at me to buy them. Why do the books have to be so pretty!! Why!!!!

  4. OMG Dorothy Must Die and the John Green box set look freaking AMAZING~! I find the best way to stay away from the temptation is not to look, because you can't think about what you don't know about ;)

  5. JOHN GREEN BOXSET *hyperventilates*. Jeez, this is why I have to get people to steer me away from bookstores, because I'd leave with no money in my purse and my debit card swiped to death.
