oh how I love books.

today I went to the first real pick up as many books as you want, grab whatever looks good book sale that I have been to in a really long time. I used to go to these quite a bit as well as picking up books at goodwill, used bookstores and hell even new bookstores have been out of my reach for any kind of browsing pleasure buying in a while too. Today though as part of my Mommy's Weekend Away I was able to take my time to look through the books really picking what I wanted also since I bought the books at a library sale most of them were only 25 cents each so I didn't even feel guilty about buying as many as I did. Here is what I added to my collection:

Book of Country Essays by Benjamin Rice
Backpack by Emily Barr
838 Ways to Amuse a Child by June Johnson
Tangerine by Edward Bloor
Camille by Alexander Dumas Jr. this is a really old copy, Love It!
Suburbia's Coddled Kids by Peter Wyden
Robin Hood and His Merry Men retold by J. Walker McSpadden
Jazz by Toni Morrison
Diggers by Terry Pratchett
Dark Continent and Other Stories by Laura Kalpakian

and for the little guy
Jack and the Beanstalk
The Hilderbrandt Mother Goose
Pirate Pete
by Kim Kennedy

I am so happy with my new books. I will probably have to send them home but as long as I can keep it under $15 it will be cheaper than checking a bag on the way home. Tomorrow we are headed to a wool festival, I have no idea what it is all about (except wool of course) but I will keep you posted.

1 your two cents:
