Seventeen Dollars


One of the seriously great things about our town is the annual library book sale. If, like me, you wait until Saturday, everything is half price. When we swooped through this morning, we got thirty books for seventeen dollars. Mostly, we got stuff for the girl: 6 Magic Treehouse books, 4 from the Junie B. Jones series, and 3 of the Boxcar Children, plus a mess of other books, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Trumpet of the Swan, and The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.

And if I go back tomorrow? The remaining books are FREE.

Awesome! Our library has a big fundraising book sale on July 4th after the parade. We clean up big time every year.

Great haul!! I bet she was thrilled! Sam's really into the Boxcar Children right now. I couldn't be more thrilled.

You've got some great stuff there. The Judy Blume "Tales of a Fourth-
Grade Nothing" series was our favorite read-aloud ever.

well done. on MQs last day of school I took her to Goodwill, and told her she could pick out any 5 books. She was in heaven, and it cost me $1.

What a great collection! Ada is really into the magic tree house series, and we are really enjoying putting them on hold at the library and then making the trek to pick up the books as they are available. I imagine we'll do it again once she can read them herself.

Nice! I remember reading the Boxcar Children and my daughter is working through them now too. She also discovered another fun series called "Horrid Henry." I love seeing how the author comes up with creative ways to foil Henry's evil plans.
