Treat Yo Self Thursday – Christmas Edition


Over at No Money 4 Books, they created this bookish meme called Treat Yo Self Thursday.  We all know that it’s just not possible to buy ourselves every book or bookish item that we’d like, but we should treat ourselves once in a while!  Inspired by Parks and Recreation’s Treat Yo Self Day, this is a chance to share what bookish item you treated yourself to this week.  It can be a book you had to get your hands on, a great deal you just couldn’t pass up, or even reading paraphernalia such as a shiny new e-reader, cool bookmarks, cute reading glasses… nothing’s too small to include on Treat Yo Self Thursday!

This is the very special Treat Yo Self Thursday – Christmas Edition that I mentioned yesterday.  Below you’ll find the reason for my excitement and Christmas hangover.

From RT Book Reviews magazine:

I won the Bookmas giveaway held by RT Book Reviews magazine!  I won 11 of their 2014 Seal of Excellence winning books.  I’m not 100% sure which 11 books will show up in the mail, but I’m no less excited by that fact.

And that does it for Treat Yo Self Thursday – Christmas Edition!  I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays, no matter what you celebrate and had a very Happy New Year!!!

Did anyone else make out like a bandit in the bookish department?



  1. I LOVE the embosser!

  2. I too LOVE the embosser! That is awesome! Was it a gift or do you know where I can get one for myself? 🙂 Also, you got tons of books I also want to read so I can’t wait to see what you think! Also, happy 2015!
