Yay! The lady was restocking the shelf as I browsed. And everything was 20% off! So I bought $15 worth of books and came on home. One of the purchases was a nice Agatha Christie, and I had seriously considered buying the rest of them.
So I went back this afternoon. And spent $40 more. Aieee! And stopped at another thrift store on the way home from there, and bought more books--$4, as these were 50% off!
I spent about $60 today on used books at thrift stores. Here is what $60 worth of books looks like:
Squee! That's 47 books, by the way.
