Torture and Temptation

No, this isn't the title of the latest profoundly daft novel to be published in the "female erotic fiction" genre. No, this is what happens when your local thrift store has a book sale - and not just any kind of book sale - oh no, we are talking about a TEN CENT book sale! Crickey! Of course the temptation part is that any book ( even one that fits into the aforementioned genre) is desirous when it only cost TEN FREAKING CENTS!  sigh. The torture comes with having to decide which books NOT to buy ... I think I behaved reasonably modestly ....

It was just a little pile ...


Ok fine! Here is the rest. Twelve books in all ...



 The pictures always suck me in...



and of course as a jewellery maker I find those pics of body adornment irresistible ...


Then of course there are the books I have always meant to read ...


and others that just seem informative or that might be useful in the (not too distant!) future ...


All in all I think I was fairly restrained. Don't you?

Wow! such a deal! At that price I think it's very ok to indulge yourself. Looks like you found some interesting books.

That is too tempting a price indeed and it looks like you mined some good ones!

Exactly how can you pass up 10 cent book. Love the science book and illustrations.

I'd say you controlled yourself admirably. You *did* prompt me to go visit the book sale room at the local library. I love those ocean illustrations!
