The Big Tiny: A Built-It-Myself Memoir (Dee William

I'm just about done with this one, and have so many great choices for my next read! Not only do I have a bunch of awesome birthday purchases still On Deck, but also...this past weekend was my local library's book sale...


I haven't made a sale since I moved to town a few years back, but have wanted too badly. I happened to have an hour free Saturday and headed over. I was worried that they would be sold out of the good stuff as the sale ran Thursday and Friday nights, and then Saturday as well. 

Boy was I surprised! They had thousands of books and many of them were recent and still on my TBR list! 


$40 later (they charge $0.50 - $2.00 per book, rather than doing the bag for $5 kind of thing), I had three bags full and could easily have kept going! Thankfully, I had a rehearsal to get to before I had to call the hubby and discuss mortgaging the house! HA!

I am so overwhelmed by all the amazing choices, I'm not sure what to do!

Best buy of the day:
 

Seriously funny, even for an animal lover, with adorable goodies like the following...


Well worth the $0.50 I paid!

I can't wait until next year's sale!!

Aren't library sales the best! I really enjoyed Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.
