More Library Loot

wpid-img_20151015_073139_835.jpgI mentioned a few days ago about my first visit to my local library’s book sale. And though I got several great books, I didn’t really get much of a chance to look for new authors and new things to read. One of the reasons is because I was a bit overwhelmed initially by all of the books, but also all of the people. Also, I work fairly late into the evening, so I was there at a time I would still be sleeping. But all of this worked out in my favor, because I was able to go back yesterday and pick up even more books, many of which weren’t available the first time around. In fact, I was able to snag three bags of books for only $11.

As you can tell, I had no problem with finding some variety this time around. I considered trying a few of the many romances I saw, but I can’t help it. If I was sure it was a romance, I avoided it. Still, getting over 40 books for $11 is a great deal and maybe… just maybe, I’ll go back on Saturday for $1 bag of books day. Though, I really shouldn’t. I really like being able to help my local library raise money. They’ve been so great about getting so many new releases and such. Besides, let’s face it, I love me some books!
