Gym update and books!

Good thing about my gym: one of the locations has a pool.

Not so good thing about my gym: the location with the pool is located right next to an Indigo bookstore. I don't even have to go outside to get from one to the other!

Sooo... I gave in to the temptation of the bookstore and popped in after my swim last night. I didn't have anything specific in mind that I wanted except maybe a book of affirmations of some kind. On my over to the self-help section where I figured they'd be, I passed the "Last copies" bin... I'm glad I stopped because I got Julia Cameron's memoir "Floor Sample" for $5 and Charles de Lint's "Widdershins" for $2, both hardcover!

I also found a little book of affirmation/meditation type things that Julia Cameron had written. I flipped it open, checked out a couple and realized it was exactly what I'd been looking for. I didn't even know that they existed but apparently she's got a series of these little books with various themes.

I spent $20 and headed home with my new finds. So much for my attempt not to buy more books! It lasted about a day.
