book haul!

So there was this book sale, and, uh, I got a little carried away.

But what was I supposed to do? They were all sitting out in boxes on tables and the pavement in the parking lot, and the lady offering empty grocery bags said I could buy as many as I could stuff in one of those bags for $4.

So how many books fit in a plastic grocery bag? 18. Now you know.

I can't quite take credit for the entire pile, as four of them do belong to Paul. But still. My near-empty bookshelf looks a lot happier now!

  1. It's weird, but I can't read Brian Jacques books. They give me really unnerving nightmares. I'm not scared while reading them (because they aren't that scary) but both times I've read one (and yeah, two times isn't a huge sample) I woke up sweating with the weirdest, surreal but terrifying dream someone involving mice and whatnot. Twice was enough to convince me never to pick one up again.

    1. That is bizarre! I have dreamt about books before (once I was Harry Potter...), so I can see how that would happen. I certainly don't blame you for giving up on them! :)
