The other day my local library was having a book sale so I thought I’d check it out. Turns out they were selling books for next to nothing. $5 for a box of books. Heck yes! A lot of the books were obviously ones that weren’t moving from the shelves or were a bit damaged. There were a lot of crime novels (snore), and piles of Mills & Boon novels (barf) so I really had to weed out the readable stuff from all the junk. I did manage to find some gems such as a copy of Lucky by Alice Sebold (author of the Lovely Bones) that was in great condition. I also grabbed some worn copies of The Hobbit and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I don’t know what compelled me to pick them up, because I already have my own copies of them. Maybe they just looked like they needed a loving home and my bookshelf is as good as any? I ended up just chucking lots of random books in (like Jane Fonda’s biography… hey, at a cost of around 20 cents, why not?). So now I have 22 books to add to my reading list. Bookwise, I think that’s me sorted for the rest of the year.
