Booking Through Thursday: Windfall


Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.

Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)

Unfortunately, my "windfall" is going to have to go to my car: insurance, renewed registration and licence, check-up...

But, if I had a true windfall I would spend it on, finally, opening my Etsy shop! Supplies for making bookmarks, blank books, bookplates, boxes decorated with books that have fallen apart. Recycled materials used for everything! But even "one man's trash" can cost...

Man, I just need to get myself organized and do this! If I didn't need to go to sleep so I can be at work in 6 hours, I would start right now!

Hope I don't loose the mojo by the time I get home...
