It's one of my all time favorite times of the year!
No, not Christmas. Not Halloween. None of those.
The Scenic Regional Library Book Sale!!!!
We're avid readers, but with different tastes,
except for informational books.
I read about soccer moms solving the crime,
he reads Thomas Aquinas.
But it's fun for both of us at this sale.
$1 hardbacks, CDs and DVD
$0.50 paperbacks, cassettes, records and VHS tapes.
The pick of the crop:
Fieldbook of Natural History
by E Laurence Palmer,
Professor of Nature and Science Education
McGraw Hill 1949
All about rocks and minerals,
birds and plants,
water creatures, reptiles and insects.
A vast amount of information.
My collection of mysteries.
The Murder Sets Seeds had a little bookmark tucked in it.
The Footprints (in the sand) writing along with a penny
that had a cross cut out of the middle. I put back the hardcover and took this one.
My collection also included the instruction guide on
off loom weaving
world wide feast day cakes
and a pretty little book of daily verses.
biographies, companions, other non fiction, westerns
He is the one who discovered the field guide as well
but I confiscated it for awhile.
In addition to this sale, there was another surprise.
Military, action/adventure and history.
Actually, my daughter found these at a church sale
on the last day 5 for $1.
What a bargain. She knew they would be appreciated here!
The lovely daily devotional verse book came with an inscription.
This was all it took for me to buy it.
Someone loved it once, or sent it with love.
Now it will be loved here.

Wishing you a very happy Christmas.
