Aquisition: FoL Book Sale

I went to the booksale at the local library. My dear husband gave me a 20-dollar bill and said have fun.

Usually, the price is 50 cents a paperback and $1 per hardback, so I anticipated bringing home around 10-15 books. But, they were doing something new - handing each person a small plastic grocery bag and inviting them to fill it up - for $3.


My Tally: 82 Books for $20
6 Bags at $3 a Bag
2 Books from the Special Price at $1 a Book

The special books were out-of-print items, both of which I wanted. Part of the 82 were some books from my husband, and I have listed them at the end.

Normally, I would make a video for this, but with almost 70 books, it would be a loooonnnnggg video. So instead, I leave you to drool over my loot.
