28. Goodwill Goodies

I think I'm in love...with books that is. Sure, those "nook" and "kindle" things are great, but for me? Well I love the smell of a good book. And to find one for cheap? Well that's even better.

If you haven't read my post on the best wedding books. Pause. Go back and read it. Then continue.

So wedding books, then can get ridiculously expensive...but before you mortgage your house and go and buy EVERY single one you see. Do yourself a favor and look around first.

Don't believe me? See for yourself.
