Our World Tuesday: Week 95

A month or so back, the local public library held a book sale to raise a little extra money.  They were selling books by the bag ($10 per bagful), so you know the hubby and I couldn't miss that.  We only have several thousand books hanging around the place already.

The sale was well-attended, by the young and the not so young, all together.  In fact, I was surprised (and pleased) to see how many people are still attracted to "real" books, in this age of the Kindle and the Nook and their ilk.

It was held in the elementary school auditorium/gymnasium, so there was plenty of space for the books and shoppers.

Yes, we only have the ONE elementary school -- it's a small community, folks.

AND...there was a bake sale, too!  So you could feed your mind and your sweet tooth at the same time! How great is that?

When it was all over and done, the library had raised several thousand dollars for new books, and we picked up a nice haul of new reading matter.

But we did manage to exercise some self-control and bypass all those brownies and cupcakes!

Linking up with:

  2. I love those library book sales although ours are usually in some dark, dank warehouse type place and nobody ever mentioned brownies.

  3. Sorry, but I'm one of those who has defected to the Kindle. Looks like you are starting a Library of your own!

  4. Not moved over to e-books as of yet, but I may have to - my house is almost full!!

    Nice post.

  5. Would you have a sampling of Summer In Fairacre? I've never read any of the Miss Read books and don't know if they are for me. Have read great reviews but would like a sample before buying.
