Books and Bracelets

Last week, I was a girl on a mission. I needed to try to locate some of the books I needed to read for my classes. However, I didn't want to buy them nor pay too much money for them. So, my solution, besides trying to find them at work, was to head to a local bookstore called Books and Company.
Books and Company is a bookstore for used books. It also is a haven for other goods, such as beautiful unique jewelry. There's also a little coffee shop, called Legal Grounds, which has amazing coffee and baked good.
So, originally I went in to get some books for my 20th century lit class and my young adult lit class. However, they didn't have any of the books. So I decided to wander around. First, I fell in love with this beautiful handmade bracelet. So, I had a YOLO moment and decided to treat myself. The bracelet was made by some women in India. I thought the colors were very beautiful, and knew I had to have one. Then, my YOLO moment continued as I wandered the stacks. I got the books "One Day" and the "Choice." I'm not sure when I'll have time to read them, but I wanted to get some "fun" books on hand. They both look very good, and when in doubt Nicholas Sparks will always do the trick.
What did you do this weekend?


  1. Wandering around bookstores is so dangerous... there are always unique and fun things to pick up! At my favorite local bookstore, I always go in intending to buy one specific thing and walk out with three things I didn't need, and none of the things I intended on buying. But that bracelet is adorable!

    1. I agree. The same thing happens to me, so I feel you. Thanks for stopping by!
