Booking Through Thursdays: I'm Rich! Let's Go to the Bookstore

Booking Through Thursdays asks:

Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes. Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500? (And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)
It certainly depends on the windfall! As much as I love books, I don't know if I can lay down $500 on new books. Perhaps if I were able to find a complete set of Winston Churchill's memoirs (I have The Hinge of Fate...someday the rest will be mine!) in good condition, it'd be worth it to spend that windfall on books. Otherwise, I'd probably splurge on something else. A vacation is more likely.

How about you? Would you spend your tax refund on books? Or would you reserve it for something else?

I'd probably get books, some dvds, and a DS/DSI...actually, I wish I could do this, but I'd most likely save the money. :)

Good idea :)
I'd save mine, but if not, well shoes, a kindle, a mini laptop

I'd spend it on a vacation, books, dvds, clothes. I'd blow my entire refund, and then some.
