It's been crazy hectic in my life over the past week ... functions to attend, changes at work, family stuff ... which left not a lot of time "me time". I get a little squirrely if I don't have time to sit down read and decompress.
But I did manage to keep one promise to myself.
For weeks and weeks I have been driving by this sign for a Friends of the Library Giant Used Book Sale that was happening this past weekend (of course!). I told myself that no matter what I was going! So on Friday I drove in the parking lot and allowed myself one hour. I had no agenda, I just wanted to go in and see if anything caught my eye.
Now this is the first of such sales that I have attended and I was overwhelmed at the size of the space, the volume of books and the throng of people. One fellow was walking around with a shopping cart that he had no doubt "borrowed" from the parking lot of the grocery store down the street. Now THAT is a SERIOUS book shopper!
I zeroed in on the sections that held the most appeal for me, browsed a little and (much to my surprise) found myself carrying books.
I did keep my other promise to myself ... I attended the sale AND was in and out in one hour.
This is what I took home...
