My first IMM of 2011.  Wow.  I didn’t realize that I had bought so many books.  Admittedly, this is about a month’s worth of books but still.  Most of them were actually bargain books at Borders that I just couldn’t pass up.  If you live close to a Borders you should go check out their sales before they are over.

I did get a lot of books but I have been reading like crazy.  I still have some time before my spring semester starts so hopefully I will keep up at this pace.
