What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than to get lost in the moment at a book sale? There were lots of special moments for this Valentine's Day edition.
|Delicious local cloudy apple juice|
with waxed paper straws-
it was like being a kid again!
|A blind date with a book!|
Such a great idea.
And they looked fabulous.
Used book sales are always fun. There is the thrill of the chase. The thrill of the unknown. The sense of fun.
|Authors you've never really heard of|
who get their own box.
Lots of people must be reading them.
|I just bought this new and full price online.|
and the Ecstasy of a book you've been hoping for, but not expecting to find.
|I only learned of the magnificently titled|
Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack last year
and now the universe has provided me with it
The indecision. Should I buy these?
|I probably won't read it for at least 10 years|
but I do love the cover
I didn't. Possibly a mistake.
It's almost a relief to get to entire sections that you can walk quickly by.
And great to see the next generation of readers fully engaged.
Afterwards I found another special Valentine celebration at The Sugar Mill. Not surprisingly the Wicker boys loved it.
I needed the energy to carry home the rather large bag of books I bought.
But there were so many treasures this day ...
A whole set of Jackie French's Fair Dinkum Histories!
|I thought about buying just one,|
but the whole set was there.
Stupid to leave it to chance.
|Three books for my 1001 quest.|
|And a random assortment of things I couldn't leave behind|
I can't wait for my next trip to The Book Yard.
|Saturday Snapshot is a wonderful weekly meme|
