>Trøste-shopping.

Nej, det kender du ikke til, vel?

Men altså, i går var jeg i dårligt humør og sådan lidt småtræt af det hele. Og hvad gør man så, når vejret er endnu værre, og sommerferien er slut, prut finale?

Joe, sådan lidt trøsteshopping er slet ikke det værste, man kan finde på. Jeg fandt min ønskeseddel frem, og krydsrefererede den med Abebooks.
Dvs, jeg fandt bøger til billig pris fra den samme forhandler – på den måde sparer man porto, i modsætning til Amazon, hvor der ikke er noget at spare ved at købe flere bøger fra samme underforhandler.

Her er dagens lækkerier:
Ruth Rendell, Portobello
Laura Wilson, Stratton´s War
Louise Penny, Still Life.

Nå ja, og så ´overtalte´ min datter mig til at købe denne her, fordi hun faldt for omslaget.
Elizabeth Spann Craig, Pretty is as Pretty Dies. Jeg ville egentlig have haft den første i serien, men den er udsolgt fra forlaget, og en pris på 36 dollars + porto for en brugt krimi? – Aldrig i livet.
Kan du finde på at købe bøger for at redde en dårlig dag?

Comfort Shopping.
No, you wouldn´t do that, would you?

Well, but … yesterday I was in a bad mood and just about a bit tired of everything. And one does a person do when the weather is even worse, and the holidays are so much over?

In such a situation a spot of comfort shopping may not be a bad cure. I found my wish list, compared with the prices on Abebooks. (The only secondhand bookshop I have found where you save on the shipping by ordering several books from the same place. Smart!).

Here are my finds:
Ruth Rendell, Portobello
Laura Wilson, Stratton´s War
Louse Penny, Still Life.

Well, and then my daughter ´persuaded´ me to buy this one because she fell for the cover:
Elizabeth Spann Craig, Pretty is as Pretty Dies.
I really wanted the first in the series, but it was out of stock which meant prices from $ 36 + postage for a used copy. – No way.

Have you tried to make an awful day better by buying books?
