Or, Why I Love Library Book Sales
Whew. What a weekend!!! Tom and I were busy cleaning, cooking, entertaining, shopping for fun stuff at the Midland Summer Art Fair, going to a baseball game and…oh yeah, this:
Spending time with the Cutest Baby In The World, aka Piper, our niece. She came to visit this weekend with my sister and her husband. Who I suppose I was happy to see as well. 🙂
In the midst of all this, Tom and I still managed to make it to the library used book sale on the $5 bag day, which is quite possibly one of the greatest things ever. And our library always has a TON of fun books, including tons of mid-century books, at their twice-yearly sale. This time we got 26 books for $5, including:
Chess Review Magazine, all of the 1946 issues collected in hardcover. Tom is pretty excited about this one!
Chasing Dirt by Suellen Hoy. I have been wanting to read this one for a while!
Congo Song by Stuart Cloete, which I pretty much just bought for the awesome cover and tagline: A lush novel of a tempestuous woman alone in a society of men. Sold!
And lots more fun books, which I will be showing you bits and pieces of in the near future!
“I can’t believe you got so many cool books!!”
