Inspired by Andi, of Andi's ABC's (Accessories, Books and Clothes) post, Monopoly Money Monday (and a Barenaked Ladies song), I thought, "What if I had $100 to spend? What books or bookish things would I buy?"
I'm going to try to make this a weekly post, usually on Saturdays, because, let's face it, I can spend $100 on books/bookish things REALLY quickly and easily! And, if I go over, there's always next Saturday!
Of course, there are no shipping charges or tax. It's my fantasy money, and I've decided!
With all the books in real life that I've purchased lately/been sent/am drooling over, I think its time to buy another bookcase. Granted, in my house, I really don't have room for another one, but then that would mean getting rid of some books, and I don't like that.
Today's purchase comes from Ikea. I found some stuff that I really liked, but was at minimum $400. But, here is a bookshelf that I can work with for right now and maybe add onto to create the one that I really REALLY liked:
The EXPEDIT shelving unit $89.99
(if I bought 2, and a short shelf, I could turn it into an entertainment center/bookshelf...oh the possibilities)
But anyway, that's all I'm buying today. The $10.01 that is leftover will probably go for either gas to get to the closest Ikea or to Starbucks (as a bribe to my husband for 1. taking me to Ikea and 2. putting it together for me)
And just because I want to show you, this is the unit I REALLY liked:
The HEMNES TV Storage Combination (but in black---has to match my existing shelves) $479.99
