If you’re like me, you relish any chance to go to a bookstore; especially a used book store!
Used bookstores are always such fun because:
- you get so many books CHEAP
- you can buy books you wouldn’t normally read
- you don’t feel bad not finishing a book that only cost $.50
- you’re recycling, so it’s GREEN
- books make your purse really heavy which in turn could act like a weapon in case of self-defense
- there’s a chance you might meet a dog
- i get to carry my The Strand bag which makes me feel very hoity toity
Recently, I dragged The Man to yet another local used book store, called Harvest Book Company. I immediately fell in love with the place because one of the employees was taking a dog for a quick walk outside. The dog, which looked to be some sort of spaniel, greeted me with a sniff and I was smitten. Ashley, the dog, was partially blind and while she/he led us into the store, she kept bumping into things.
I took this meeting as a good omen, cuz who doesn’t want to meet a friendly pooch during your day?
At the end of our visit, I was happy with our purchases. To be sure, these prices were not the best I’ve seen, but I’m still happy with my haul. During our visit, I was able to score:
a book for The Man about Al Capone
A book by Temple Grandin that I’ve been looking for
No, David, which I love and goes over very well with the little lovies
and several more books in the series Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison.
and she was excited to receive a few more
and a few miscellaneous postcards which I am excited to send to my new friends as part of Teach Preschool‘s postcard exchange!
All in all, win-win!
What have you scored lately?
