The Friends of the Library always have a small selection of used books for sale in the main library, just in case you miss their Thursday and Saturday sales, which I almost always do. I was at the library returning a very overdue (oops!) book yesterday when the used books started calling to me. I obediently browsed through them and then bought four that looked interesting.
- Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech (because it’s on the Top 100 Children’s Books list, and if I borrow it from the library, I’ll probably end up returning it late, so why not just pay the fifty cents up front?)
- Hatchet by Gary Paulson (same reason as above)
- Heidi by Johanna Spyri (because I remember enjoying it as a child)
- The Gammage Cup by Carol Kendall (because I remember owning it as a child but not reading it)
While writing this post it occurred to me that it is Thursday today. That means the book sale is on. If I go out today, I might just have to stop by and see what other books they have for sale. I’m in a book-shopping kind of mood.
