My husband got me Amazon Prime. This means I can get free shipping without having a minimum order of $25. I was able to convince myself that this would actually save me money. (Gosh, I am gullible) Think of all those times, I said to myself, where I wanted two picture books, and the total came to like $23.87 and I had to order one more book that I didn't even want just to get the free shipping!
Yeah, but now I pull the trigger on every whim. Oh, look... this penguin book looks cute. $10.85. Ding! Oh, here's another. Mr. Wolf's Pancakes. A fractured fairy tale. Need that one for research. $11.03. Ding!
Picture books are arriving by the day! It's no wonder my four-year-old is addicted to Super Mario Brothers. Addiction runs in the family.
