Today my local Library was having a book sale. I had read about it in the paper about 6 weeks ago and wrote it on my calendar so that I would remember. I had to work today so planned on going around 4:30.
When I arrived the books had been picked over, which was alright because I did not really need anything, so whatever I found would be a bonus. Plus I was looking more for treasures than books to read and I hit the jackpot!
I bought 26 books for a mere $3.00, which is less than .12 cent a book, can you imagine......
There was a table that no one was even looking at with vintage books, so of course that was my first stop.
Some of the treasures I found:
a German Song Book with a hand written letter inside dated 1908,
a Book of English Poems dated 1915 that had the price written in it for .52 cents,
a 1921 American Poetry book in excellent condition,
a 1926 German book with some great pictures & wonderful written pages in excellent condition,
a Sunday School book from 1935 with a typed letter attached to the back page dated
September 14, 1935 from a MN Pastor,
a 1940's French to English translation book,
another book from the 1940's
a 1979 reprint of the 1909 Sear, Roebuck & Co. Catalog
Then I headed over to what was left in the craft book category and found:
a book on Patents from the 1970's,
a couple construction/drafting books from the 1970's
several craft books from the 1970's - 2000 that caught my eye.
My last stop was over to the cookbooks (because I collect them) and I found several cookbooks from 1990's - 2004 that were of interest to me.
My 15 year old daughter was with me and she found a couple books that she wanted. Actually she was the one who found the 1940's French Book and the 1921 American Poetry book for me, she is good!
It is a good thing that I had a 5:30 appointment, otherwise I would have been there several hours looking for books......that I would then have had to find room for.
If you ever get the chance to go to a Library Sale be sure and mark your calendar and check out what deals you can find!
