On the way into town to go to the grocery store, I stopped at the thrift store to see what books they had. They do an awesome thing where they sell a grocery sack full of books for two dollars. I have mentioned some of my book hauls there in the past here, and have made it kinda my "thing" to post whenever I go, and score books. I love books and I love being thrifty, so being able to score a whole bag for two bucks is a win win for me. Today I scored eight books in my bag for two dollars, two of them cookbooks and three of them hardcover editions. I am overjoyed with what I found today, and even happier that I got them for such a good deal. The eight books I bought are: -How Starbucks Saved My Life by Michael Gates Green -The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith -Little Bee by Chris Cleave - Happy Happy Happy by Phil Robertson -Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris -Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin -Fish:The Basics by Shirley King -Mastering the art of French Cooking by Julia Child and Simone Beck While I am excited about all the book I purchased, I am especially excited about the Julia Child's cookbook. I have been looking for it for YEARS. I actually gasped when I found it on the shelf. I am really looking forward to using some of the recipes. The Fish cookbook is pretty interesting too, it details how to clean and cook all kinds of fish as well as recipes for just about any kind of fish you could think of. The Chris Cleave book makes me pretty happy too. I found another book by him earlier this year at Dollar Tree and loved it so I am looking forward to reading this book,by him. Eight books for $2..14 with tax, isn't bad and this week it is definitely worth it for the Julia CHild's cookbook. What thrift store finds have you found recently?

@Happy2BeMe we live out in the boonies. Lol about eighteen miles from town so not very many garage sales. Im sure we will hit the flea market at least once this summer. Relaxing weekends are the best. Any hockey on this weekend?
I rarely look at the books but I do have favorite authors and should...Not sure if it was in Canada or the somewhere else but someone picked up three or four old masters, framed paintings for next to nothing...don't remember the rest of the story but I think they were donated to a museum..
