I am a big fan of a bargain, and I love books. Recently I have visited a couple of thrift shops just to see what I could find. I never usually check the book sections, but on these visits I did. Well who knew? I found all kinds of paperbacks, mostly in really good condition. Who gives away their perfectly good books? I guess I was so surprised because I never get rid of my books. As a matter of fact, I’m always looking to expand my library. Not in that special hoarder kind of way, I just enjoy being surrounded by books. In my forever dream house in my mind, I will have a library and books will line the walls everywhere; even the hallways. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s true.
Even in this day of electronic books and all of the sleek, cool looking readers, I still love an actual book with pages. I guess people are trading their books for Kindles and Nooks and donating them. Some of the books that I saw were brand new. I will get rid of books that are dated, like old encyclopedias, but novels? Brand new, barely read novels? No way. I rescued 6 this past week from the Goodwill store, and I plan to go back and get more. So keep donating your books! You know who you are. They will find a new home soon, because I can’t walk past them and leave them there!
