In My Mailbox (3)




I am so lucky this week! The Jacksonville Public Library had their bi-annual Friends of the Library Book Sale. Man, did I rack up! I went after work Friday and bought this box.


I think there are about 30 books in the box, plus what I stuck on my bookshelf to read before giving them to the kiddos. Then, I went back today and took advantage of the $10 bag of books. Anything you can jam in a paper bag was only 10 bucks! Let me say, I am a PRO at cramming stuff in to tight spaces. My bag might have been about to burst, but I got my money's worth! I even scored a few audiobooks and videos. =) The highlight of my trip was my leather-bound 3rd edition of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle for an amazing $3!! What a steal. The pages are in great shape and hardly show any discoloring. WHOOP.


Now I have to wait until October to do it again.

Seeing a box of books makes me giddy. It just does. But I totally get what you mean - I'm counting the days to our library's bi-yearly yard sale. This thing is HUGE, plus the library gets rid of a lot of their books, too. Always a great deal to be made. :-)

A box of books = a dream come true. Hope you enjoy reading all of them! Looks like you'll need to clean up your shelves a bit to have room for the books!

Take a look at what's in my Mailbox.
