Just spent the last two days picking up books from my local second hand stores. Not only were they already marked down as used books, but I got a fifth book free for every four I bought AND my entire purchase was 30% off. So I found ten books on the first day and fifteen on the second. I should be busy for a a month or so.
I also made a woman’s day. She was happy to see someone my age still reading, smiling as I put the fifteenth book into my cart. I told her that there is nothing better in the world than a good book, and she agreed!
I was tempted to run to the coat section of the store and grab a faux fur (not real, because that is cruel) so I could reenact this lovely comic. It makes me laugh every time I see it, so I thought I’d share it with you. All Book Babies know that they’d make it rain money if they could, but we’re a bit too polite to throw our money at hardworking cashiers… haha!
