It's Saturday which meant a trip to the thrift store and a bag of books. Before I get to the actual haul of books that I scored for two dollars. I actually made a couple of purchases that were not book related. I bought two camisoles at $1.00 each and a Guy Harvey short sleeved tshirt for $1.00. Which I thought was a pretty good deal. Anyhoo, on to the book haul. This week I scored ten books for $2, one fo them was for a friend. I can't even remember the title or author, I saw it and knew it was somehting they would read so I got it. Anyway the nine books I got for myself are: -The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold -Where We Belong by Emily Griffin -The Pampered Chef The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home Cookbook -Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom -Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch -Charlie Wilsons War by George Crile -Mere Christianity by CS Lewis -The Other Side of the Mountain by EG Valens -Circus of the Damned by Laurell K Hamilton I was pretty excited to find Mere Christianity and Charlie Wilsons War. This week the two hardcover books I got made me pretty happy (The Lovely Bones and Where We Belong), and the cookbook was neat. Althought for $2 for all of them, I can't really complain. Have you scored anything neat at a thrift store or on sale this week?

I got myself that chair today but it wasn't a thrift store, wish there were one near me to walk to dang it. You got yourself a pretty awesome bunch of titles there too! I love thrift stores. Nice you got that one for your friend too.

I'll be going to the eye doctor a month from today to get reading glasses. So I can relate to your issue.

I don't shop in thrift stores. I read The Lovely Bones years ago and I think I enjoyed it. I also tend to read everything by Emily Giffin but I don't think Where We Belong was one of her best.

Nice steals. No thrift stores or sales this weekend, though my library is having a book sale this weekend, I might have to pass on it this spring and wait until fall.

@thislittlepennyearns Go for it. I hope to offload more books by November. It's been a few years since I last went to one.
