Half Price Books and my Jane Austen addiction

As a good fan of Jane Austen I take every opportunity I have to purchase more items related to her and her books. In February I went to Half Price Books in Crossroads Mall (here in Bellevue) and I found a book to add to my collection.

The book is “The Illustrated Pride and Prejudice Companion”, it has beautiful color illustrations on every page to accompany the story and I absolutely love it.

Today I had the opportunity to visit this bookstore and again I was really lucky because I found something else to my collection, a metal box containing 10 Jane Austen Gift Cards.

After this I think I’ll be going on a regular basis to see what else I can found for my collection.

Once, the movie and the music

once

Almost a year ago I watched on Netflix the indie movie “Once” and the thing I loved the most about this movie was the amazing soundtrack, Marketa Irglova and Gleen Hansard are great artists.

Today while I was looking for some piano’s songbooks in Amazon I wanted to listen this soundtrack again and to my surprise I just found out that the mp3 version is on sale at $2.99 USD in the Amazon store.
I don’t know for how long the offer will be available (and I think is only available for U.S. Customers), but If you enjoyed the movie and the music, this seems like a good opportunity to buy the soundtrack at a really good price.
