Just got back from my local library's semi-annual book sale with bags and arms full of new reads. The total haul for the four of us came to 35 books for.....$13.50. In the past I have really gone crazy at these types of events and ended up with more books than I had shelf, table or floor space for. Inevitably that lead to my culling out some old titles I had already read or had decided I'd probably never get to. This year I decided to restrain myself and only pick a handful of titles, and I did pretty well. Out of the 35 books now sitting on the dining room floor only five of them are mine. The majority are for the kids, and since we home school it is really more of an investment than an impulse buy.
