Great books for a great price

Don't you love when you find exactly what you need for a great price!?

Nick and I will be reading through Sacred Marriage, by Gary Thomas, for our pre-marital counseling. Nick tried to order the books on amazon but ended up ordering 2 participant guides instead. These will be great for discussion, but we still needed the book! Since we live so far apart, we can't share the book, which meant we both needed one. So, I ventured up to Half Price Books a couple months ago in eager anticipation to see what kinds of marriage books they had. Guess what. They had one copy of Sacred Marriage for $6.00!! I was ecstatic, and bought it immediately. Well, Nick still needed a copy, but since he had paid for the participant guides, I said I would cover the books this time. So, today I went back up to the same Half Price Books hoping that maybe they got another copy in since the last time I was there. AND THEY DID! Just one! Hooray! So now we both have books and I paid less than $15.00 for both of them.

A friend also recommended For Women Only, and For Men Only, both by Shaunti Feldhahn. Since they are two different books, I was unsure if I could find both of them at Half Price Books. But I did! So I got both of them for the price of one! Hooray for half priced books at Half Price Books! So right now, I am reading For Women Only, and have already learned some great stuff! I can't wait to see what else we learn through pre-marital counseling!

I looked for others that have been recommended to me, but could not find them. Hopefully, better luck next time!

  1. You should totally read Men are Like Waffles, Women are Like Spaghetti if you have time. It's SO funny, and totally makes sense in terms of how men and women were created differently.

    Also, I have another recommendation...remind me to tell you later :)

    Someone gave us Sacred Marriage as a wedding present! Let me know how it is!!
