I have mentioned a favorite little overstock bookstore that I frequent. Well, ever since my self-imposed book buying freeze back in March, I've tried not to be such a frequent visitor. I used to go after Bible study at least two Tuesdays a month, because it's right down the street from my church, but it's been a while since I've been in, because whether I "need" a book or not, I can't resist buying any hardback in the store for $4, or any paperback for $3, or finding even better deals on the dollar cart in the back of the store. . . . Well, I am on the email list, and I found out that they were having a huge $1 sale--not the slow-to-sell books that are usually there, but brand new, popular books!
Amanda and I went after her soccer game. Oh, it was fun. This is what I came home with:
Several are gifts or things that I can surprise people with, but all but about 4 of them were only a dollar. ALL of these books cost $30! Because they are remainders, occasionally the cover has been cut (probably by the box cutters), or there's a place on the back where the sticker ripped the cover (on the Judy Moody book), or it has some sort of a mark. Sometimes they are perfect.
I did just clean out my library, and managed to find 7 or 8 books that I could give away, but maybe I'll have to see what else I can manage.
