Is there any shopping experience more exciting than a library book sale? I suppose there is for more fashion-minded people than myself, but it’s sheer exhilaration to arrive early to get in line, eyeing the other customers, wondering which ones will reach right in front of me to claim a title I have my eyes on, or mercifully decide to set it back down instead. It had been several years since I’d been to a library book sale, and never in my new town. I was pleasantly surprised by the selection of titles available, as well as the cheap rates. As usual, there was a bit of a mad crush in the room within minutes of the sale’s opening; I had to think on my toes and act quickly if I thought I was interested in something. I emerged triumphant with a large tote bag of books, 19 total for the same amount I’d pay for a brand new paperback. Quite an exciting morning. I vow to make it to more library book sales.
