Booking Through Thursday

btt button

Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.

Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)

I would spend $50 on a couple of graphic novels or a short stack of paperbacks. But probably the graphic novels- they tend to be expensive and I have a hard time justifying buying them most of the time. Most the graphic novels I review are gifts or come from the library! $500 would not go towards books- that's too much to blow on luxuries in my opinion. I would put it towards attending a national library conference, which I can't afford to do this year, and which would be good for my career and my bookshelf!

I have never read a graphic novel either...in fact I had to google it just the other day to see what someone was talking about. Great answer BTW.

Our tax refunds usually go toward college tuition.

Using the $500 for attending a conference is a great idea. Practical and fun at the same time. Good choice.

No doubt about it I would spend it on books. Or maybe make a payment on my credit card which is all books.

If I got an unexpected $50, I would probably spend half on books, and half on supplies for my crocheting projects.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I too have never read a graphic novel, though I have been tempted by Neil Gaiman's graphic novels!

I don't think I could spend $500 on books. Well, let me clarify, I could EASILY spend $500 on books, but wouldn't choose to. (Unless, of course, some lovely person wants to give me a $500 gift card for my favorite bookstore? Anyone?? I thought not.)

$50 would definitely go towards books. I'd probably try to fill out some of my series. I have several book series that I need the next book (or two) for so I can catch up.
