    Another Book Haul

    Twice a year there is a large library book sale near me. They have books upon books upon books.

    Obviously I make sure my schedule allows me to go.

    Sadly, I was disappointed this year. Previously I had been able to get six books for $1, this year they upped the price to $1/book for hardcover non-fiction – I mean, it’s still a good price but it’s not nearly as good of a deal as it used to be.

    I bought my third copy of The Two Towers because I couldn’t resist this pretty edition. Even though I’ve never read the book (though I did start The Fellowship of the Ring yesterday!).

    I was excited about the dyslexia book and already read it and was disappointed. Boo.

    The classical education book (The Core) I have actually read a couple of times before and am excited to have scored that one.

    The Wildwood book I want to read for a review (though I should probably start at the beginning).

    I also got a book of poetry, something I want to read more of but struggle to make time for.

    And then a couple of other books that I will get to eventually.

    I’m hoping they reduce their prices for the fall sale or I may not continue going, there are way too many people there to take a proper look through the books and it’s not really worth it if the deals aren’t that great.
