You know it's been busy around here, since I went to another used book sale 2 weeks ago and am just now getting around to writing about it!
The library got these great reusable bags donated to them by a local bank, and were handing them out freely. The boys and I filled 4 with books.
These were some of my books (in their bag).
These were more of my books.
I also got a few books for the relative in Colorado. She can't drive, and is very happy when I send her silly little gifts like a couple of books.
But my greatest find was this book (sorry for the blurry picture - I must have been wearing my stooopid hat when I took it):
You can't tell, but it has a nice, padded cover, with these gilt-edged pages and the ribbon bookmark. I'm not entirely sure how much use it is, given that it has information on how to start the fire in your stove in the morning, and times and temperatures are virtually nonexistent, but it's a great deal of fun to read, in addition to being a very pretty volume. I think its previous owner must have died, and the heirs (probably men), just gave away everything, including this book. No one would willingly let it go.
Happy Thorsday, everyone!
