*Sighs* Anyways, I was able to get a lot of stuff. They still had lots of inventory... just a lot of it was hard to find. When I looked and the manga section, I wasn't able to find a single volume that I needed next. They were either so old that they weren't even in stock anymore, or they were on 55 and didn't have the earlier ones. So, my Mom and I looked around and picked up some volume 1s that looked interesting, not that I really need to have that many more manga series to start. ^_^;
I was sort of sadly disappointed the Young Adult section. I only ended up getting two books. Certain areas were really picked over, and not a lot was really jumping out at me like I was hoping. It could also be that I've visited Borders twice in the last few months and the one at the mall a couple of times, too. But still, I was expecting to get a lot more.
And if you want to talk about picked over, the cd section was a mess. I thought I'd get a few of those for really cheap, and there were a few I was considering, but I decided against it. I bet there was at least one I would have loved to get, but everything was so mixed up, and I didn't have the energy to look through it all. There were so many people at the store. I constantly felt a panic attack coming on.
I guess the really great things I got were Chamber of Secrets and Twilight audio books. I always loved the audio of the Harry Potter books. I had 1-3 on tape, but it's so hard to get around to listening to them that way. I have one portable tape player... which I don't carry around. So, yeah. And I've heard that the woman who reads Twilight has a lovely voice. At 40% off, it seemed like a good idea. I guess I just wish I would have bought another Harry Potter set, too. I mean, the bigger ones were $75 originally. I'd have saved more that way, although the prices on Amazon are not that much more. But when I got home, I ended up making an order on Amazon of a few things I wasn't able to find at Borders.
Either way, I ended up basically out of money, but you should see the stack of stuff I got! I'm so glad I saved up for this trip. But I just don't want it to be the last one. Maybe... maybe I'll go back for another audio book, but it would be a real bummer to go there for one thing and have it be gone. ~_~; Though I'm sure I could find something.
Another sad thing I realized while I was at Borders is that now, I'll never be able to see a book of mine on a shelf there. Never.
