Books!

It's a good thing I never really seriously considered that whole "give up buying books for a year" thing. It never would have worked out.

This was all in the past 2 months. The first is from a library book sale. The second from the Christian bookstore. The third is from a Scholastic warehouse sale (minus one book that accidentally got in the picture by mistake). I also found about 8 (or more) books on the bookshelf that are new to me in that same time period.


Anyone know where there are any BLA meetings around? And if you have to ask what BLA means, then you aren't a BL. :)

Oh wow! thanks for the pictures! I've been wondering what books you got. The books from the library sale look awesome! I'm really glad I didn't go to the Scholastic sale.... haha!
I haven't heard anything in my area about a BLA meeting, but we could always start our own?!! :)

Now you need to have some form of catalog or list so that you don't buy any duplicates when you are at sales...just a thought. Maybe use a note card box or something.

I usually don't have much of a problem with that. If I did buy a duplicate, I would just sell it at a garage sale or bookmooch it. Homeschool stuff on the other hand, I do worry about duplicating or overbuying. Plus that stuff is hidden all over the house. When I actually have one room to put it all in I will probably have a ton!

okay, i'll be the dumb one and ask. . . what's BLA? i'm guessing book lovers of america, but i've never heard of it.
if it is, and you find a meeting, i'm in!
