My Impulse Purchase

Saturday morning I went to the library, as I often do. I use their online catalog to reserve books and CDs that I want over the Internet, and when my items come in, I get a nice email telling me to pick up my stuff. So most every Saturday I go return my current items, head to the reserve shelf, grab my new items, and check out. Its quick and easy - I'm usually in and out in under 5 minutes.

But this time on my way out, I paused a moment and glanced at the "for-sale" table. And that's when I saw it...

The book I must own.

No coupons, no B1G1 sale, no nothing, I just bought it right out.

That's how cool it was.

How much did the unplanned purchase of this treasure set me back, you ask?

Five cents.

You go Bill!

(I totally would have paid a quarter!!)
