That’s quite a haul, Carolyn! You’ve got some good stuff there. 🙂
The Friends of the Library has little “book shops” at out main libraries here — they are really something. Very organized with high quality used books. I walk out there with arms full.
My hometown library has those too, and I just realized a few days ago that our current town library has a little shop too — tucked away in the cafe, which I’m always too rushed to visit.
I hardly ever get out to thrift stores either; we just happened to be driving by. In a city with so many college students, it’s not unusual to find a treasure trove of books they’ve dropped off after (barely?) reading them during the semester.
I love that your library shop is tucked away in a cafe…sounds like a nice place to wile away a rainy afternoon. Aaahhhhh, the literary perks of living in a university town. 😉
I love it when I come home with stacks like that! But my to-read shelf is overflowing…
Mine too! It’s more like a whole bookcase, and then some . . . but I cheerfully admit that I have very little self-control when it comes to books.
I’m the same way…it’s always so exciting. I enjoyed The Memory Keeper’s Daughter there in your pile and I otherwise also have a few of the same titles in my overflowing to-read stack!
I’m starting to wonder if any of my apartment-quality kitchen cabinets could withstand a load of books . . . .
Now that’s creative thinking!
