BTT: Windfall

What would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

Well, there are lots of things I would want to buy, but I will keep this book related. If I had $50 I would buy some of my favorite classics to add to my collection - maybe a nice set of Jane Austen's books, or the Anne of Green Gables set. I would also like to get the Little Britches series by Ralph Moody, so that I could read them to my boys. So I would probably pick one of those book sets.

If I have 500 bucks to spend I would probably get a digital reader. I didn't think they were for me, but the more I read about them, the more I want one. lol. Maybe it's just the consumer magic getting to me, but I think it would be really convenient and nice.

Sounds like a nice idea :D
It's horrible, all my Austen books are one big book

Good choices. Luckily I have Jane Austin and Anne of Green Gables, but I don't have little britches yet and really want those as well.

I haven't made up my mind on the digital readers yet, some days I think they sound really cool and other days I just want to keep adding the real thing to my library collection.

I'm so glad that you like the Booking Through Thursday questions. I was afraid that I would be the only one that thought they were fun. Hopefully you don't mind too much when I re-ask them on the book club site.
