A very good trip to the library

Yesterday I stopped by the library to drop off/pick up some books and there happened to be a book sale going on. I almost didn't look at the books because it was 3 p.m and the sale had been going on since 10 a.m. I thought chances were pretty slim there would be anything there I'd be interested in. Well, I was wrong. This book shelf is filled up with all my lucky finds for under $10. J has already read one Roald Dahl book (Roald Dahl is her favorite author) and she is reading another book right now. I can not tell you how excited I was (I even found a 1/2 dozen books for myself)-there really is nothing better than coming home with bags full of books. :)

  1. Wow, that was definitely a very good trip to the library! Several of those we've read in the last year. The Family Under the Bridge was actually one of my kids' favorites that we read as a family last winter. I was a little surprised. I'm glad you had such good luck at the library sale!

  8. WE love library trips and all the books to bring home. Although our children are saying,
    it must be time to move, there aren't many books we haven't read at the library any more.
    Enjoy reading
    God Bless
