not that I do not spend ample time on the internet, blogging, facebooking, researching, browsing the infinite depths of the world wide web, the usual etc etc. However! Today marked a new point in my online adventures- venturing into the world of online shopping. Sure, I’ve checked it out before, looked around, done a bit of browsing, but have never stepped in far enough to actually buy something. Until now.
Continuing with my good day, I decided the appropriate way to spend my lunch hour was in a bookstore- a place where I always feel at home, comfortable and relaxed. I became more and more disheartened, however, when seeing all the wonderful books, checking the price tags, then thinking of my current less than impressive bank balance. Got back to the office, and began my new mission- to satisfy my hunger and love for literature and the wonderful world of words and stories, while keeping my bank account happy and me guilt free. It did not take me long to discover fishpond.com.au, and I browsed for a good hour or so, marveling at the vast collection of books and the incredibly cheap prices. After much thought process and decision making, I finally purchased:
– The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
– Robinson Crusoe
-The Five People You Meet in Heaven
All for a mere $17!
Now I just have to wait patiently for the few weeks it is anticipated to take to receive them, and hopefully all goes well and they actually turn up. And if it works out, I will definitely be using this for the majority of my book purchases from now on. Overall, I must say, I think I might be a budding fan of online shopping! Next might even be…wait for it…clothes. Big step, I know.
Point of this post being- my geeky side has been satisfied for now, as has my adventurous & curious side, in the technology department- both with venturing into online shopping and creating a new blog all in one day!
