A bag full of books for my future classroom. There are probably 20 paperbacks in the bag and it was only $5. I love library book sales. (Taken with instagram)

This weekend, I was at my local library’s book sale and I found 3 Norton Literature Anthologies for $1 each.
You can bet your smartboard that I snatched those suckers up. Who knows if I’ll need them, but I’ll have them.
AND they were only $1 each! How could anyone say no to them?
I also bought a whole bunch of other books for my future classroom. I need to buy another storage container; the one I have is filled to the brim already. I bought 10-15 (I can’t remember the exact amount) and only spent $9. And I’m supporting the library. Who doesn’t love that?
I picked up a huge anthology of plays for $1. It has plays by Shakespeare, Moliere, Neal Simon, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolfe, Oedipus Rex, and so many more. And it was a whole dollar! I imagine this might come in handy at some point in my career. I’m a huge fan of anthologies.
I also picked up a few other books, some for my imaginary classroom, and some for me. I walked out of the store with 6 books and spent $10. How can you pass that up?
This store was HUGE. It just kept going and going and going. On one entire side of the store, every single book was $1. You really can’t beat that.
I adore local businesses. Especially local bookstores!
I’m already out of room for my own books, which I keep buying, FYI. I have a huge stack of books sitting in my car trunk indefinitely because I have nowhere to store them in my bedroom. I’m thinking I’ll have to buy a big plastic crate and keep them all in there, and hope I don’t run out of room in there.
My kiddos better appreciate this in the long run.
