오늘 또 영풍문고에 나갔다가 40% 세일 코너에 가서 충동구매를 하고 말았습니다
원래 뭐 살때 이것저것 다 따져보고 사는 스탈이라 충동구매 이런거랑은 거리가 멀지만
유독 책만큼은 자제가 안 됩니다. ㅠㅠ

오늘 산 책들입니다

이 책들을 언제 다 읽을지는 모르겠지만 일단 마음은 든든해졌습니다
그리고 세일 품목이였던지라 6권 사는데 35000원 정도밖에 안 들었습니다. *^^*
예전 같았으면 2~3일치 담배값도 안 되는 가격으로 마음의 양식인 책 한권을 장만하네요

근데.. 지금 읽고 있는 Freakonomics랑 읽다가 만 Thd Audacity of Hope을 얼른 읽어야할텐데 말입니다. --+

for I have redeemed you;

I have summoned you by name;

you are mine

    책 욕심이 많은 편인데,,, 요즘은 책을 쉽게 못사겠네요.
    책값도 비싸고, 경기도 나쁘고,,,
    좋은 책들을 저렴한 값에 구하셨다니 축하드립니다. ^^

      요즘은 책을 주로 인터넷에서 사지만 가끔 종로에 나갈일이 있으면 꼭 영풍문고에 들립니다
      항상 일부 원서를 30~40% 세일하고 있거든요
      오늘 가보니 헤리포터도 양장이랑 페이퍼 세일하고 있던데 그쪽은 제 취향이 아닌지라 위의 책들만 골라왔습니다. *^^*
      그리고 저도 책 값이 부담이 되지만 그래도 담배를 끊은 이후에 그 돈으로 가끔 책을 구입하곤 합니다

    구글애드센스, 애드찜, 애드클릭스를 모두 달아도 되는건가요~? ㅎㅎ

      세개 모두 달아도 되긴 합니다만은.. 너무 지져분해서 저도 고민입니다.
      블로그를 조금 깔끔하게 해야하는데... --+
      수입면에서는 애드센스가 제일 좋기에 남긴다면 애드센스만을 남기겠지요.. *^^*

    그래도 충동구매한 품목이 책이라는 것은 긍정적이지 않습니까?~ ^^

      대발이님 또 오셨네요..
      당연히 충동구매 품목이 책이라는 것은 지극히 다행이죠
      위에 글에도 써 있듯이 2-3일 담배값으로 책 한권을 살수가 있으니깐요
      담배를 피우면은 몸이 안 좋아지지만 책을 읽으면 마음도 건강해지고 또 그 시간이 행복해지니깐요. *^^*
