I won an online auction the other day! I usually don’t win because I am
cheap frugal and do not usually bid very high. In this particular case, I had the item on my watch list. I received the customary email right before the auction ended warning that my watched item “might get away” if I didn’t spring into action. Which I did. I hadn’t yet placed a bid on the item. The price started at $9.99 and there was one bid. Two minutes were left on the clock. I quickly placed my bid, expecting to be outbid. But I wasn’t.
What did I win?
A collection of 15 brand new books on China.
Step Into the Chinese Empire
Moonbeams, Dumplings & Dragon Boats - (Collection of Chinese holiday tales, activities & recipes)
Daisy Comes Home - Jan Brett
Children in China - Michael Karhausen
Sing 'n Learn Chinese, w/CD - Children's Songs

The best part is that of the 15 books, I only had one of the books, and it is wrecked from usage. I received the books today and you would have thought it was Christmas!
Oh, my winning bid…$10.50.
