It is nice to be able to search through so many books....
In our world today, books are not treasured as they once were... now people read on kindle, on their phone, on a computer... but I still like a "real" book... one that I can hold in my hand... one I can make notes in or highlight... and the book becomes so much more useful to me.
I have bought many books at garage sales, library sales, other book sales... and I enjoy them... and we use our books. I have sometimes found books in new shape... even wonderfully bound Bibles. I talk to the people at the sales and have found many people who are selling their books because they don't need them anymore... they just use their electronic books. Some people no longer have ANY books in their home... only electronic books... including the Bible..... so if the grid goes down... these people don't even have a BIBLE? Wow. Anyway... I will buy them.... :)
This is one of those... this book was tucked down in and I missed it the first time through... and I almost missed it the second time through.
I tend to buy books for reference...and I bought herb books, health books, gardening books and more...
I like books and I look forward to using my new books... and putting them into our library so they will be available when I need them.
I also need to go through my books and pull the ones I no longer need... this is an important step. :) Otherwise we have too many books and not enough room.
I was pleased with my purchases... the paperback books were 75c each and the hardcover were $1.50. I think I got my money's worth. :) I was sad to find out that this particular church book sale will no longer be holding book sales, but I know God will continue to provide through other sales.
