Victoria Friends of the Library sale

The Friends sale runs for another couple days, library hours. I wandered through today and picked up a Saul Bellow I read a long time ago, a biography of brothers Wilson and Addison Mizner, a Margaret Maron mystery, and a big book on needlepointing for the girl, who's been doing that sort of matronly thing lately. There's always some kind of great deal at the Friends sale.

Went to the library sale Wednesday and racked up a mini-library for the sweet little one. He was so good in the stroller, while his mom checked out the bins under the tables and I checked out the treasures above. A box of books went home with him. He loves books already (must be a genetic thing) and by the time he grows into the "new" ones, they'll be many more to keep them company.

I always find "new" authors at the book sale. Some I enjoy enough to seek out other writings; while to some I say, "Nice to meet you" and move on to others. I love this inexpensive way to explore the wonderous world of words.

Enjoy reintroducing yourself to your old friends, Loon. Have a great day.
