Today I went shopping. Not for books for clothes. My rule is, if I buy new clothes I have to get rid of old clothes. So I went through my closet, took out a few old things and took them to Goodwill. I decided to check out the book section. It was rather large about 6 bookshelves worth, although a little messy.
While I didn’t look at every book there, I did walk down slowly and gave a careful look over what was there. I picked out two books and went to pay for them. However, I had stumbled into their Wednesday Manager’s special, which was 4 books for $1. So I went back to take another look. I hadn’t seen any books that were true crime except for one about the mafia, it was about the same boss in a book I already have. Since I am not that interested in organized crime I didn’t get it. Instead I got a biography that had only mildly interested me but for 25¢ I picked it up, and a book about how bad cosmetics are for your skin. Not a bad haul.
Then I found a bar that has Brooklyn Lager on tap for $4. I may have hit happy hour though.
Picked these up for a dollar.

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
