Yesterday our local library had a book sale, yea!! Picked up about 25 books in all, spent a total of $7! Mostly kids books, a few for me. Even found a few I'm going to give my FIL for Christmas. Don't tell him!

My kids have two short bookcases in the living room that are full of books. I'm pretty particular about not having an overabundance of things, house is too small for that. Books are my only exception, especially children's books. But I'm all about quality literature. I don't like fluff stuff, it needs to have some actual merit.

I also found several books for myself, which I was really excited about because most of the time when I go book hunting I find things for the kids but not so much for myself. I am the type of person that has to "read" things several times before really finishing something. I skim the first few times but to really read and glean something takes me several passes.

Excited to have some new things to look at. Pretty soon I'll be able to cuddle up with a cup of cider or tea at night and read once the kids are asleep. Sounds heavenly!


  1. sounds like you got some good deals! Personally, I'm dangerous around book sales! My bookcases are already overflowing!

  2. I am so jealous! I have been eyeing a few books that are on my wish list!


I treasure your comments!
