Sorry, I know I'm the picture-less wonder lately. I've been a little lazy about uploading pictures and I was going to buckle down and do it right now, but then I chickened out about posting pictures because, again, we might be giving some of the things I just got as gifts. Anyway, on to what I actually signed on to say...
I love children's literature. Absolutely love it. I love the way that the stories you read as a child seem to stay with you forever.
(Makes me think of this clip from You've Got Mail, specifically 1:06-1:17.)
Okay, okay, so maybe I know this movie a little too well, but it's true!
Anyway, this is all by way of saying that good quality children's literature on good sale is a total weakness for me. A bookstore near our house was having a big clearance sale today and I bought quite a few books, most of which were about 50% off. And that's hard to beat. And hard to say no to. So I ended up spending about $30 for 5 brand new, excellent condition, first rate children's books today. Although one of those books was a Disney collection for 1/2 off, so I feel even better about my purchase. And while it certainly doesn't beat thrift store prices, you simply can't count on always finding these kinds of books in good condition in a thrift store. Doesn't anyone else get this way about kid's books?
