  125. Favorite thing to shop for.. hmm. does "thrift" count as a thing? I can spend hours "treasure hunting for just about anything in a thrift store and I LOVE it. But I will admit I'm a sucker for old books. Old books and cheap books. And cheap old books. My "to read" pile is about 200 books long because I always get sucked into places where books are $1 each or 50 cents each, or just marked way down from normal price. I always find something to take home. :)
