Books are my downfall. Specifically, cheap books.
The urchins and I did go to the Scholastic sale today, and I was rewarded with a tremendous bargain -- fill a box for $15. The selection wasn't as good as the December or May sales, but it was decent, and we certainly found books that we wanted, plus we got a few for the gift closet. We brought home 53 books for a grand total of $16.11. Not bad.
Not that we really needed more books, as we all have a little bit of a book obsession.
Vanessa noted her book obsession in her "look at this stuff" meme. Go look. I'll wait.
Did you see the free space on her shelves? HA! Did you hear me scoff? Yes, I scoffed.
Let me show one of our many bookshelves.
This bookshelf is 6 feet tall, 4 feet wide. We have two of them. They're both packed with books. And those aren't the only bookshelves in the house, although these are the largest. We have a total of 10 bookshelves, although only 8 of them are for books. The other two are for CDs and DVDs.
Good heavens! I didn't realize we had that many.
That Company is supposed to transfer Skeeter next spring, and I've sworn to him that we won't be moving books that I don't truly love or need. Thus, the reason for all of the Amazon and Half.com listing.
And yet . . . I can't pass up a great book bargain! It's a sickness, I tell you.
But in my "getting rid of stuff" phase, my friend Kristin (a first grade teacher) is getting some good stuff for her classroom!
