I love going to the library. For me browsing at the library is as good as browsing at Target! And everything you bring home is free!!!
Last week the library had a book sale. Used books, library discards and donations from the community. I have no problem with used books as every book you take out of the library is used anyway. (Take note people who buy me books-I prefer you DO buy used! REALLY, I don't mind!) Why pay new book prices if you don't have to. I also like half.com, Amazon, and eBay for used books. Not that I buy all that many books because I don't. I prefer to let the library store them for me.
However, last week I spent $12.50 at the library book sale. This included:
-8 Little Bear VHS tapes. This for me is the deal of the century. Little Bear is my girlie's favorite show and it is completely kid friendly and nice! I kept 4 and gave my mom 4 for her house.
-1 Madeline Video
-1 Dragon Tales Video for my mom's house.
-5 children's paperback stories
-The Little Princess and The Secret Garden
-2 Books from the Little House On the Prairie Series
and 2 I have been wanting:
-Crockett's Victory Garden and Square Foot Gardening
The square foot gardening book alone would have cost more than $12.50.
Next time you need a book, consider used!
