Yesterday was a blast at the Brainerd book sale.
I arrived around 6:50 am and secured the first spot at the sale as per crazy book girl tradition. 😛
Soon to follow – two of my awesome friends joined me at the 7:00 am hour. YAY to Dawn and Amy!
Here we are – me, Dawn, and Amy…. holding down the first three spots tot the sale. Did I mention it did not open until 9 am? 😛
As the hour neared 9 am… the line wrapped around the library. They let in the first 50, then as people leave the sale, they replace them with people still waiting. It is quite the system 😀
And then we were in and it was AWESOME! Paperbacks and hard covers alike are 50 cents a piece. Here is my haul:
I am thrilled with my take away! I am excited especially about City Of Ashes, the Margaret Atwood books (I have yet to read her…) and Anita Shreve’s Weight Of Water – which many of you have said is one of Shreve’s best. I am hopeful that many of these other titles are incredible too… I just dont know it yet! 😀
Tomorrow morning I go on probably my favorite bike ride of the year, the Camp Benedict Ride. Two days… 150 miles… possibly 175 if I do the optional 100 the first day, which I really hope to do as I have not ever done a century in one day before and that was the plan at the MS ride in June, but unforeseen happenings made that not be possible. 😀
