4 Places You Can Buy Cheap Books From

Finding the perfect store to buy cheap books is difficult if you don’t know where to go. Even though books are not cheap at all. It’s still nice to find some place where to can buy books in your price range. Hopefully, the stores that are listed below become your favorite place to shop for books.

1) Goodwill: If you have this thrift store in your town and city stop by and take a look in the store. They have a good variety of used books. Recently, I went to my local Goodwill store to find some books. The books I bought were very cheap and in good condition. I got 5 books for $4.97 USD. Man, when I walked out that store I felt so good. Imagine if I went to Barnes and Noble. I probably would’ve spent $100 or more on 5 books.

2) Thriftbooks: I have ordered from their website twice. One night I was on YouTube and I discover their site. I was so hyped about it. I felt like I hit the jackpot. Anyways, they are an online site that sells new and used books. You can find any book you can imagine on their site. You only have to spend at least $10 to get free shipping. That’s a deal right there. Most of the book prices start from $3.79 on up. On my first order of books I bought from them I got 4 books for $15.86 USD. The second set of books I order from them I got 5 for books for $20.24 USD. Click here to check out thriftbooks.com.

3) Walmart: If you shop at Walmart to do grocery shopping you should stop by their book section. They update the section frequently. Usually, when I visit their book section they have books that just been released or been out for a while. Most of the time their book prices start at $5.00 or more. I’ve bought a good bit of books out of their store.

4) Dollar Tree: Sometimes this store can have a good selection of books if you’re open to reading any genre. Also, some Dollar Tree stores have a better book selection than others. Make sure you go to a good one. Usually, when I look through their books I take my time and look extra hard through them lol. I’m very picky when it comes to picking out a good book. The reason this store is on the list because their books are only $1.00 USD plus tax. The tax is only like 0.08 though. You will be surprised at what kind of books you are able to find out of there. You may see one of your favorite author books in there.

If you get a chance make sure you check out the stores that were mention in the article. Have you ever bought books from any of the stores that were mention? Do you know any more stores that sell books at a cheap price? If so, feel free to comment the store names.

How to Manifest a Good Life

It’s time for you to start manifesting a positive or good life. You deserve to live a life full of happiness. I’m going to give you a couple of tips on how to manifest the life you want to live.

How to Start

When you want to manifest things into your life. First, you must get yourself mentally prepared. Clear your head, start meditating, or do anything that’s going to open your mind to new things. Because you will have to get into the routine of thinking positive and speaking things into existence. Any time you want something in life you have to claim it like you already have it. That’s the key to bringing whatever you’re wishing for to enter your life. Plus, you must have some type of faith or belief in it also. One day take a moment to think and write down a list of items or things you want.

For example, you can write down something like I want a new car, a new house, a baby, lose weight, and a job promotion. Those are just a couple of things. After you write your draft find a notebook or journal that you will only use to write about things you are manifesting. When you find the perfect little book, you want to write in. Open up the book put the date in the top right corner or where ever you prefer. Start writing your first entry. When you start writing make sure you’re writing it in the present tense. Let’s say you want to write down you want a new car. Write the sentence like “I have a new blue 2018 Toyota Corolla.” Write the sentences like you already have the item or the event is happening in your life.

Speak it in Existence 

This tricks your mind into thinking that you have it. As you keep writing every day what you want to have. You will eventually start seeing how your life will change for the better. You must get yourself in the habit of writing what you want at least every day, thinking positive, and having faith.

Also, another thing you need to do is when you are speaking about your problems aloud avoid saying negative things like “I am so broke.” Try rephrasing that sentence and say “I will have more money coming soon” or anything that will prevent you from saying you’re broke. Breaking the habit of saying words like can’t, won’t, never… etc. is tough trust me I know exactly how hard it is. Then I remind myself I have to speak positive words aloud to keep positivity around me. Anyways, like I was saying to break the habit of speaking negative words aloud.

Another thing you need to know is when you are manifesting things into your life keep it a secret to yourself. Don’t share it with anyone else. The reason I tell you that is because you could confide in a friend or family member about what you want to manifest, and they try to pretend to be happy for you in your face. Behind closed doors or in their head they could be wishing for your downfall. You don’t want their negative thinking or thoughts aloud to affect what you have going on. Also, make sure the journal you’re writing is in a good hiding spot. Put it in a place where no one can find it and read what you wrote. It’s your private journal.

My challenge for you is to practice what I taught you in this article. Is this your first time hearing about manifesting something? If not, explain your story about manifesting what you want in life.

Vibes You Sense From A Person

Have you ever been in a room and felt someone vibe base on their presence? They didn’t even have to speak to you for you to know that their a good or bad person. Some of you probably thinking “how in the world will I be able to determine that without even speaking to the person that enters the room?” Well, the best response I can tell you is that you will get certain body reactions (like facial expressions), gut feeling, or you can feel a strong presence of good or evil.

For example, two people could be mad at each other and be in a group setting with others. Everyone in the group can feel the tension between the two people who are mad at each other. It can feel like a big elephant in the room. I don’t know if some of you heard of that expression before. It basically means it’s something no one isn’t trying or wants to talk about.

I can tell y’all plenty of stories where I been to work, school, or any other places where I didn’t know certain strangers and I could tell whether or not they were a good or bad person. One thing that really catches my attention is when my whole mood change when someone comes in the area or room I am in. I could be in a very happy mood than all of a sudden I feel upset. That’s how I can tell a person has a bad vibe to them. They didn’t even have to speak to me for me to get upset about something with them. It’s weird how our intuition can alarm us.

No, I don’t want any of you to think I have any type of jealousy towards anyone that comes my way. I’m not a jealous person at all or don’t like anyone for no reason at all. I was just blessed with a gift where I can pick the good from the bad or the fake from the real. Even a person body language can tell you a lot about the person. I am not an expert on that so I won’t get deep into that.

Anyways, anyone has the ability to feel any type of vibe from a stranger or a person they know. You just have to pay attention to the way you act with the person you come across. That is a sign or signal right there.  Have you ever been in a situation where you felt a certain type of vibe from a person? Or do you know someone who had a similar experience to what I talked about in the article?

Nobody Takes Sex Seriously

Nowadays certain people give out sex like a free advertisement. Like damn you can’t get to know a person before you give up the goodies. That’s why STDs get spread around. No one wants to check a person health status but wants to bust it wide open just because he or she are sexually attracted to someone.

First of all, you need to both go to the clinic to check your status then if everything straight y’all can think about having sex! No one mentions that often nowadays though. The only thing that’s on their mind is “oh, this person is sexy & looks like they don’t have any type of STD I should be fine” or I got the protection I’m good. Yeah right! Y’all better wise up instead of being STUPID at the moment. Now I understand we can get caught up in the moment. Just think about this you will save yourself from a lifetime of trouble, guilt, or regret if you think smarter when it comes to sex. Sex is something you do not want to play with.

Most people love to see it as something fun to do and not see the consequences that go with it. Nobody wants to think about the unexpected pregnancies, the risk of STDs, and feelings that are involved with sex. I’m going to stop you from reading the article right here and let you listen to the rest of the discussion on my podcast episode “Nobody Takes Sex Seriously Anymore.”

Listen to my podcast episode to hear more about what I think about people not taking sex seriously anymore.

Mental Break Days are Important

Mental break days are important. It’s sad how some people choose to not take it seriously.

Have you ever needed a mental break? Like you’re drained from the daily routine and need a break from everything. Especially if you have been constantly working without getting the rest you need. That can be so exhausting!! We all have those moments where we may need to take a day or week off you get yourself together. It’s nothing wrong with getting that type of break.

Honestly, I feel like more jobs should make those days necessary instead of working people to death. Even if it’s a job that a person may enjoy doing. There will be a point of time where they need a break for a little while then come back rejuvenated. Maybe there are jobs out there that do mental health or break days. Then I know most jobs don’t.

Before you finish reading this article. You should listen to my podcast episode as I explain more about the importance of mental break days.

Lynn’s Close Call

Lynn phone alarm ring *BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP.* The phone kept ringing until she finally turned over to push the stop button. The time on the phone showed 7:00 am. Lynn has to be at work at 8:30 am. She hurried up out of bed so she could wash and get dress. After she finishes showering and getting dress Lynn took a look at the time again. Now the clock is showing 7:35 am.

“I need to hurry up out this house before I am late.” Lynn thinks to herself.

She makes sure she has everything she needs before she walks out the door.

“Keys check, phone check, and purse check. That should be everything.” Oh yeah, let me make sure I have my wallet.” Lynn says to herself aloud. Everything Lynn needed is with her. She walks out her front door then turns around to lock the house front door.

As she is locking her door from a distance someone was watching her. This stranger has watched her for a month. The stranger learned her daily routine quickly. Lynn isn’t aware of the danger that’s coming her way. The unknown person gets out of the black van and walks towards Lynn. While the stranger walks closer Lynn could feel a weird energy. As usual, she ignores the feeling. For some odd reason, the feeling gets stronger with each second that goes by.

Before Lynn could turn around to walk to her car. She felt a sharp excruciating pain in her throat. The stranger in the black clothing grabbed Lynn from behind and cut across Lynn’s throat with an 8-inch kitchen knife. Blood splatter all over the house front door. Lynn dropped to the ground with her left hand holding on to her neck while she gasps for air. Her “killer” stood over her while she bled to death. A sinister grin spread across their face. “Enjoy dying BITCH!” the killer says while looking down at Lynn. Those were the last words Lynn heard before she went unconscious. As quickly as the stranger came they disappear even faster after leaving Lynn to fight for her life outside of her home.

Lynn woke up in a hospital bed. When she tried to open up her eyes. She is blinded by a bright light. Looking around the room trying to familiarize herself with her surroundings. Her first reaction was to panic because she had no clue where she was. The last thing she remembers was trying to leave her house for work.

Looking down at her stain bloody left hand there was an IV inside her hand.

“What the hell happened to me?” Lynn thinks to herself while trying to lift herself up in bed.

“Be careful Ms. Clover I don’t want you to mess up your stitches.” Nurse Summer tells Lynn.

“STITCHES!?” Lynn tried to shout but no words came out and it hurt to talk.

“Take it, easy sweetie. If you need anything you can write it on that notepad over there or type it on this tablet and send the message directly to me.” There is a notepad and pen on the table next to the hospital bed. Also, the tablet that Nurse Summer told Lynn about sat right beside the notepad and pen.

The nurse walked over to the bed to make sure Lynn is comfortable. “Do you need anything else?” Nurse Summer asked Lynn. Lynn shook her head no.

“Alright, press the nurse button on the remote if you need me or text me on the tablet.” Nurse Summer says as she walks out the door.

Left alone in the room Lynn is still trying to figure out what causes her to go to the hospital. Someone knocked lightly on the room door. A tall gray-haired slender man entered the room. Detective Reynolds walks towards Lynn so he can introduce himself.

“Hello, Ms. Clover I’m sorry to walk in on you. I would like to introduce myself and ask you a few questions. My name is Detective Reynolds can you tell me a little information about the incident that happened in front of your house this morning?”

Lynn grabs the notepad and pen she writes down “what incident?” on the paper. Then shows the detective the notepad she wrote on.

“The incident that causes you to bleed to death.” Detective Reynolds responds. Lynn’s eyes popped wide open when she heard what the detective said. He could see the surprised look on her face. “Do you remember what happened? Detective Reynolds continues to talk and ask questions. “A witness told us they were passing by your house and saw you lying on the ground bleeding to death.”

When the paramedics arrive at the scene you were already unconscious. Your throat was cut very bad. You’re blessed to be alive right now. Lynn listened to the detective carefully as she processes the information she’s receiving. She felt speechless, violated, and hurt. Who would do something like this to her?

TO BE CONTINUED…

Who do you think tried to kill Lynn? What would you do if you were in Lynn’s situation? If you enjoyed this short story share your thoughts about it.
