I really do have a great boss. He has people who give him gift cards for Barnes & Noble. However, he doesn't use them. SOOOOO...... HE GIVES THEM TO ME!!! He came in today with TWO TWENTY-FIVE DOLLAR GIFT CARDS.
There is a small catch - Barnes & Noble is one of those companies who, if you don't use your card within 12 months of purchase, charge you $1.50 a month until your balance is $0. He has had these cards for a long time, and is fearful that I will lose out. So I have to hurry up and use them - oh the burden!
So, I am at Barnes & Noble.com - which is cheaper than the brick and morter store, and I don't have to drag husband and children with me. I actually have to go to Borders and the library at lunch and decide which books I want. I don't want to have to return.
Oh, I forgot to add that they both have full balances on them, as did the first time he gave me one.
Poor me, I must get more knitting books - the tragedy!
