Semi-annual used book sale!

Well today was one of my most favorite events - the Salt Lake City Friends of the Library used book sale. This year I took Nathan with me, which meant I wasn't limited to how many books could carry with me on Trax and the bus. I took a backpack and two sturdy reusable bags and we filled them all, plus a plastic bag.

Some of my finds:
2 books by Scott O'Dell
3 Encyclopedia Brown books
2 books for my friend Danna (really for Riley and Jake)
2 Mary Poppins books


Between the two of us, we spent $34.50 and got 60 books. Here are all our books, plus Nathan enjoying one of his!

When I saw the info in the newspaper calendar thing we get in the mail, I wondered whether you would be going again this year. I have to stay away from things like that because I don't have enough space!

I'm so happy for you.

Someday I am coming to visit you just for that sale! :) There is a book sale at the neighboring city's library next month and even though I am now HUGE I will be there, even if I have to get a babysiter!
I love Scott ODell, which ones did you get? And thanks for looking for our books! :) Can I send you some shipping $$ :)? Love ya!

Danna - Zia and Streams to the River, River to the Sea. No shipping $ necessary, I just have to get them packaged and mailed! That's the hard part, I procrastinate mailing things. I got your email. I have to find the ones I looked at and I'll get back w/you.

I need Enclo BROWN books - that would be the best ever to give Jeff for his b-day he used to love them and he still talks about what ever happen to the books
