Not only did my husband and I enjoy a super shopping spree today, we went to a book sale, one of our favorite dates. When we arrived inside the basement, we saw a tower of boxes with this label:
We filled 11 boxes and two tote bags. We actually filled three tote bags but somewhere in the melee, we left one behind. I called, and they are holding it for us. I see all these boxes of books, and all I can think of is the one I left behind. If I can scrounge up some more Ziploc coupons to make a trip worth it, we may just go to pick it up tomorrow.
I thought I had been through all the books on the shelves when I told David to sit down and take it easy while I made one quick lap through the building again. Lo and behold, on the bottom shelf of the religion section I found a real gem; a vintage Catholic book about saints. That book alone is worth the $30 I paid for all the boxes of books put together. I’ll take a picture of it tomorrow, after I locate it.
Unless it is in the tote bag I left behind.
I found some other treasures amid the stacks that I will also take pictures of. Of course, a lot of these books are headed for my garage sale on Thursday, and some I chose because I know Half Price Books would pay a decent price if they don’t sell at my sale.
I’m sure my back will hurt tomorrow from carrying heavy boxes of books, but tonight, I’m enjoying a job well done.
