all this for two dollars?

Yesterday after gym we made our weekly trip to the library and were surprised to find a Library Book Sale! All of us were squealing with delight wondering what we would find and find we did!


Fifteen fabulous books for only two buckaroos! Can’t shake a stick at that!

Just realizing I have already used six exclamation points…well, I guess you can really feel my excitement, huh?

Fisher is currently obsessed with My Father’s Dragon. He has listened to the audio book of the series every night for the past twelve weeks. We only have the first book, but yesterday we found Elmer and The Dragon! I can’t even tell you how big Fisher’s smile was. I wish I had had my camera with me because it was a priceless toothy grin full of the wonder of the world.


We also found an old copy of Pippi Longstocking!

We also found Winter Cottage by Carol Ririe Brink, The World of Animals by Desmond Morris (which has long been one of our favorite library check-outs!), and Kate by Jean Little, but I couldn’t find any fabulous photos of those three, so you will just have to imagine lovely covers in your mind.

All this adventure, beauty, human nature, and learning for two little dollars? What a treasure!

    I adore used books. Every time i go to DI, I come home with books. Everytime I go to any thrift store, I look at books.

      Me too. It was so funny when I brought this stack of books home, Richard looked at me and said “Books are our children’s inheritance, aren’t they? Well, I hope they love them as much as we do.”
