Not In Jersey: Books! Books! - Not In Jersey


Friday, June 15, 2012

Earlier this week I was able to hit up the library book sale. It is huge and overwhelming - they take over a whole mall and fill the hallways with books! I had some luck the last time I went with just scanning over the fiction books and picking what looked good without too much thought, so I took the same approach this time. If I think too much I might pass up a good book without realizing it! I also hit up the chapter books for Gabbie - she has become quite the little reader! Obviously that is exciting for me - I even found her some of my favorites from childhood. I ended up spending $20.50 - $1 for each book for me and $.50 for the ones for Gabbie - and brought home 15 books for myself, 12 for Gabbie, and 1 for a friend. Take a look:
