$1.75

Books
I'm loving the "Friends of the Library" book table at my library. I got most of these books there. A couple came from a garage sale three houses down. Every time I go into the library I head straight to the table to see what's new. They are usually .25 cents. I'm a book junkie. Sometimes I speed through books, jumping from one to the other in a weeks time. And then there are times like now, where I go slow and take my time with a book. I'm reading "Middlesex", it's so good, I'm loving the history, and the wonderful characters. It's a wonder I even find time to read, but I really do seem to find the time. I read when I'm nursing Rocky, when we are sitting outside and the kids are playing and when they are napping. I steal little moments all day long. Anyway, reading is a love of mine, I guess at this time in my life it really is my only hobby. My days are spent taking care of the kids, taking care of the house, and spending time reading.

I love books too and have this need to have them on my shelf. I have most of those books as well. Another great place for books is a website called titletrader.com - you trade books, dvds, vhs and cd's and you get points for the ones you give up, points you can use for 'buying' your own.

One must always peruse the library sale table! I always bring my change purse when I drop library books off! I, too, steal away moments to read! I've noticed my kids stash books here & there, too!
