I don't splurge very often, well not at all really. But I did this week and I'm so happy with my purchases. From Amazon.ca & of course on sale.

I can't remember the last time I purchased anything full price. I do wish I could support my local book stores all the time but right now that's not possible. Even when I shop locally it's always on sale.

$45 for 1 hardcover? (If you've read anything I've written prior, I collect hard cover books for my future library.) Maybe publishers could do a special edition for the higher price? Who knows. I realise authors need to get paid but $45 is not realistic for so many people. $45 could pay a small bill, buy some groceries or put gas in your car. I'll have to remember this when I'm selling my own books in the future.

Anyhow, the purchases:
Underworld Rise of the Lycans. I love the franchise. I'll get the 4th installment on sale of course.
To Tame A Land. Louis L'Amour is great. If your into western's he is one of the best.
Peril at End House. Agatha Christie, one of the best as far as I'm concerned. The character of Hercule Poirot in one of my favourite stories.
The A.B.C Murders. Another Hercule Poirot, the Belgium detective at work.

What things do you like to splurge on? Books, concerts, dinner out, vacations?
