Some women are thrilled over diamonds.
Others love shoes by the dozen or expensive perfume.
As for me, show me a sign to a used book sale and my heart starts pounding fast.
Of course, with books lining floor to ceiling shelves in our living room "library," the time has come to be very discerning. Only books I really, really, REALLY want come home with me now.
Sometimes I find books intended to be gifts, too. Those are allowed into my used book sale bag.
At a sale last weekend, look at the sweet treasures I found.
The book below, on kitchens, has absolutely delightful watercolor paintings it would be hard not to fall in love with.
New on the horizon are the services of life coaches.
They are different than therapists.
I'd love to go to one but there's no extra money for such a luxury.
But I found this book written by a coach and hope I'll learn a lot from her.
Now everyone knows that Mediterranean women are beautiful as well as healthy.
While I never purport to be slim in the future, healthier sounds good so this cookbook was a steal for a buck.
Last but not least, this one sounded interesting. Elves, huh? Well, you never know......
I also snagged two cool cds at the used book sale but I'll tell you about those another day as this is running a bit too long for busy people.
WHAT WAS ONE OF YOUR BEST PURCHASES AT THE LAST USED BOOK SALE YOU ATTENDED?
