As a book nerd, I feel obligated to do a budget buys for one of the biggest book retails – Indigo. But I didn’t just want to do budget books, I wanted a theme. Since I’ve been researching trips for my mama and she’s always wanted to go to England, I’m doing British Invasion. So get that tea, some crumpets and read away.
Also – Indigo/Chapters is having no minimum shipping free. Get all or only one! No charge.
- Victoria: A life ($10)
For any of you history nerds out there (of which I am one), you’ll love this budget biography. I know biographies can be boring, but all the reviews says this one is great.

You can’t be British without your tea. I’m sorry. Doesn’t happen. Here’s a mug with the quintessential British saying. Also comes with an infuser!

I do realize this isn’t on sale, but if you are England-obsessed such as myself, this print is cute and will definitely complete your England-away-from-England look.
- Lonely Planet England: 9th Edition ($32.60)
This book is only for those of you who are going to England. There are different editions which you can find cheaper, but with travel it’s best to have the most up-to-date information.
