This week the boy and I went through some of our books and ended up donating 7 bags to the library for their sale this past Saturday. My son is 6. He sees me acquiring books from various places all the time and has always been encouraged in this as well. Through our various Saturday book hunting adventures (Goodwills, libraries, bookstores-used and new, yard sales), I am proud to say I have created a little reading monster. Mission accomplished! The donation to the library however, put me in a bit of a pickle. Yes the goal was to get rid of books we're not going to read but as we're dropping them off I get the inevitable question from the Boy "Mom, are we coming back to the sale to look at books on Saturday?" Now, I would be a hypocrite if I said no-so off we went. Unfortunately for the boy, 90% of the kids books there were ones he donated (although he did manage to snag Sponge Bob's book of excuses...). I however had some great finds (was there ever any doubt?). So,
From the FOL sale on Saturday:
- The Outlandish Companion by Diana Gabaldon
- Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie
I also managed to get hardcovers of The Fiery Cross (Outlander #5) and A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander #6) to replace my worn paperback copies. The grand total for these 4 books plus Boy's Spongebob book? Well it was a $3 a bag sale so...$3! Thank you library!
Also got 2 from PBS this week:
- Ravens of Avalon by Diana L. Paxson
- G by John Berger
That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping by!
