Going Out of Business!

Thank all of you for your support over my last post. I feel much better today. I think the main issue is that I haven’t been able to exercise over the last few days due to my knee. I am actually feeling some pain in it now.

Whenever I go a few days without exercise, my self-esteem (and eating habits) go down the toilet. But I plan on making an appointment with an orthopedist next week to see what’s going on. In the meantime, I will make the best choices I can and try to forgive myself for not being perfect.

Today was a great day. There was a Borders nearby that was going out of business. Woo-hoo! I was all set for excellent deals on books. I bought several items. The deals weren’t earth-shattering on the cookbooks, but somehow the fact that all cookbooks were 20% off made me want to buy them. Plus I had some gift cards burning a hole in my pocket from Christmas. Buying books with someone else’s money is even better.

Here are my finds:

Food Rules: by Michael Pollan <– very excited about this one!
Now Eat This! by Rocco DiSpirito
Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies by Alice Medrich <– I can’t WAIT to try a recipe from this cookbook. There isn’t one single recipe in here that doesn’t make my mouth water.
Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell <– Loved the movie and I can’t wait to read the book!
Personal Training with Jackie Warner: Crunch-Free XTreme Abs DVD <– LOVE her!

Can you tell that I’m kind of obsessed with food? Note : never go to the bookstore hungry. ;)
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Tomorrow is Internet-free day in our household so I will be back with a great post on Monday. :)
Anyone have any great cookbook recommendations?

  1. The Borders near me is going out of business too. I want to go in there to buy some books, but I feel really awkward because I used to work there and I sort of put in my two weeks and never showed up again :)

  2. i loved the movie julie & julia too! let me know how the books are :)

  3. I think I would go crazy in a book store that was going out of business. I’m currently finishing the last book of the Hunger Games series, and then I will be reading Live Wire by Harlen Coben. He is one of my favorite authors.

  4. Look at you! Lucky duck! :)

    That’s sad about Borders….

  5. I visited the Borders by my house a couple weeks ago too! It was a madhouse!! Can’t wait to hear more about the cookbooks and the great recipes you find!

  6. I love buying food-related books and cookbooks, although I’d have to say my favorite cookbook is Blog World itself! There are so many great bloggers and great recipes! I love your homemade biscuit recipe! :-)

  7. I love buying cook books :)

    Sorry to hear about the book store going out of business, but great deals for you!
