  • Oh, that’s not what I bought. I was pointing out typos. Sorry, didn’t read that last line of the post. I’ll make a different comment so you can delete mine after the typo fix.

  • I picked up the Game of Thrones Seasons 1–6 Box Set for less than half price, as well as a couple of paddle boards for a good deal. I also purchased an annual subscription to Amazon Prime for the first time in order to get those deals. 🙂
