Oh, I know it isn’t quite the end of the month yet, but I just had to share my most recent book purchase. Typically I like to get myself a little something at Christmas time. Well I had already gotten myself something earlier this month (you’ll have to wait for my official book haul post for that), while I was trying to figure out another book to get my niece, for some reason I ended up looking at the Jane Austen box set (The Heirloom Collection).

Now I’ve been lusting for this set for the past year, ever since I saw someone post pictures of it on tumblr. But it’s not cheap and I could never justify spending $50+ on it. But then here it was, only $40. It was so tempting and then I remembered the promo code I had a friend tell me about that morning which I hadn’t decided whether or not I was going to use. After much indecision (and a couple of desperate texts and tweets), I went ahead and bought it.
And now I am in love, these are the most gorgeous books I’ve ever seen. You should have seen me before I even received these books in the mail, I was showing pictures to everyone, telling them what I bought for myself. You’d think I just had a child and was showing her off to all my friends and relatives.
Now typically I’d wait to share these with you, but I thought this collection deserved it’s own book haul post. These hardcover books are my favorite book purchase this year. Just take a closer look at how lovely they are (I dare you to tell me they aren’t gorgeous):
Are you a fan of Jane Austen? Thinking about buying these? What was your favorite book purchase this year? Let me hear from you in the comments!
