    Question Did anyone buy the latest CD Grab Bag?

    I was tempted, but didn't purchase it.

    I went for it. It's the first grab bag I've ordered in many years, but as I'm guaranteed all new books that I haven't ordered, it should be worth it.

    I jumped in. I think whoever wrote the description (who writes the descriptions anyway? Brian? Richard? Dan? Mindy?) did a very thorough job of mashing that FOMO button. A NYTimes best-selling author that CD has never published before?! The books they've selected are TOO GOOD to let go at this low of a price?! VERY limited time, HUGE discount, you cannot go wrong?!

    Yep. To all of that.

    Yes. I went for it straight away, although, after some recent heavy spending I was absolutely resolved to resist any new purchases for a while. Oh well.

    I have given up on those kind of resolutions. It began to feel like every time I resolved to not buy any books someone had a "can't pass up" offer.

    I know what you and Humphrey Bear mean. For quite a while, I did really well and didn't buy anything major or pricey. Than I saw one or two books-the kind I really dig and within the past two weeks I couldn't resist and gave in when I saw a new release by one of my favorite authors.

    I didn't go for this grab bag when I saw the total price including shipping. Last year I got a dinged grab bag from CD and loved it. I think the dinged grab bag was more affordable.
