I paid $4 for 24 books- SQUEE!

I paid $4 for 24 books- SQUEE!

I’ve noticed something while going through bookstores both new and used.  As I’ve been preparing these lists for you, writing lists of books for me and my family, and studying book lists from various places I’ve gained a large knowledge of book titles and authors and now its easier to find books that I might not have otherwise.


Yesterday, while I was waiting for my ultrasound appointment, my husband and I went to a thrift store.  We originally went to look for a coffee table for our “Chalkboard Table” business, but while I was there, I HAD to look for books.  {Smile}  I ended up taking out 24 books, many of them nice hardcovers, for $4.35~ what a deal!


Here’s what we brought home:



Adult/Scholar Books:

Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The Deerslayer by James Cooper

20,000 Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (This I got because it was small.  We have 2 other hardback copies)

How to Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie



Sorry for it being sideways.  Thanks to the cellphone for that one.
