I hit my favorite used book store’s annual 50%-off sale yesterday. Came home with 40 kids books (picture books, schoolbooks and YA novels) for 25-cents apiece, and just over a dozen grown-up books for a dollar each.
I also picked up a crate of nice books that were individually priced because they were “special” and among these were
- The complete Burton translation of The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (6 volumes in 3 fat books) for $5 on-sale– awesome score for my collection, and
- Dragons: a natural history
- Mentioned because this one has already made me start considering whether I ought to change my lindorm’s appearance. I’ll do a separate post about that when/if it’s confirmed.
- What’s in question is whether the monster will have two limbs or none. I have to work the math and see what side is better for the story as I can find either type useful.
Putting all those books away was plenty fun, and I had to laugh when during the process I noticed the audio course Argumentation, Part 1 was right next to an unread copy of Making Friends.
I need a used book store like that. . .
Actually, maybe I don’t–at least until I have a room dedicated as a library with floor to ceiling bookshelves. Then I need a store like that.
