Book Issues

August 24, 2012

This post is about a few books that I’ll gladly add to my wish list, but not only… It’s also a WARNING that you should always check the prices elsewhere, before buying anything on the first website you see something you like.

Most of the lifestyle blogs I follow have always been raving about that great, super shop called Anthropologie. Have you heard of it? Have you ever been to one? I know that after reading a short version of their introduction you will definitely click on this link – visit Anthropologie:

A page from Anthropologie’s March 2012 catalogue

“Anthropologie offers a one-of-a-kind and compelling shopping experience that makes women feel beautiful, hopeful and connected. We invite you into our world … with the hope you take a deep breath and explore until your heart’s content. We’ve been getting to know you ever since 1992 … From that time on … we’ve learned so much about you – like how you appreciate innovation, artfulness and good design, and how you’re drawn to soulfulness and sincerity. …You remain our inspiration and because of this, we endeavour to bring you an unimagined experience.”

They sell lots of beautiful things, including books, and might be offering incredible service and shopping experience, but the prices aren’t very “friendly”… Anyway, here are the books for the wish list and their price comparison:
