I only went to the thrift store for an alarm clock, I swear! 🙈
I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I found Abbey Road from the Beatles at the thrift shop! I actually did a double take, and then I snatched it up as fast as I could 😅 Normally the record section only has Schlager albums and the like.
I also struck gold at the books section. First I came upon Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. I've been curious about it for a while. It's chunkier than I expected! Then I came upon Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. People keep telling me she's an amazing writer and her life story is very interesting. This'll be my first Woolf to read, can't wait!
There were a lot of nice looking books in a nice condition, it was difficult not to bring all of them! In the end I decided on The Left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman and the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon. Unfortunately the latter has one of those annoying non-removable stickers on the cover. A shame, because I really like it! I'm very excited about reading all of these books! 😁
Oh, and I also got that alarm clock I was 'only' going to buy in the first place 😅 Hopefully it'll help me get out of bed sooner. Now I use my phone as an alarm, but I end up browsing on it so long that I end up being late anyway 😖😥
Can you contain yourself when thrift shopping? I hope y'all have better impulse control than I do 😝
#beatlesforsale is the fourth studio album by the English rock band #thebeatles . It was released on 4 December 1964 in the United Kingdom on EMI's Parlophone label. The album marked a departure from the upbeat tone that had characterised the Beatles' previous work, partly due to the band's exhaustion after a series of tours that had established them as a worldwide phenomenon in 1964. Beatles for Sale was not released in the US until 1987, when the Beatles' catalogue was standardised for release on CD. Instead, eight of the album's fourteen tracks appeared on Capitol Records' concurrent release, Beatles '65, issued in North America only.
This week's song of the week is Imagine by John Lennon. I love using this song in particular for second year players as a way to work on mastering that pesky "F" chord. Of course I have some modifications that make this fantastic song accessible at almost any level.
