One of the best days of October is bag day at one of our local library's annual book sale. They give you brown paper sacks and you cram as many books into the sack as you can for $5.00. I usually leave with three bags. This year, I left with five bags and around 150 books!
Not counting the library sale, only eight new books came into my home in October:
This came in the mail as a surprise from a BookCrossing member who saw it on my wish list.
Just The Way You Are, by Christina Dodd
I picked this up at Walmart while buying groceries.
This came in the mail from a Book Mooch member.
I ordered this from Alibris.
And I did make a trip to a thrift store, which yielded three books:
Maisie Dobbs, by Jacqueline Winspear; The Sweetest Gift, by Jillian Hart; and Wish List, by Fern Michaels.
I really need to refrain from buying/ordering/mooching books as there's no space in my room for more! In addition to the five bags from the library sale I mentioned above, I have four bags of book from another library sale in September, and I've nowhere in my house to put them!
What I really need is a bigger house.
