Show and Tell Friday: Library Book Sale


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday at Kelli's house. This week our library was having the big annual book sale. I spent a whopping $10.25, and brought home several bags full. My treasures included stacks of Victoria and Country Living magazines, books on decorating, soapmaking, gifts to make, a tape series by R.C. Sproul, three little gift books, and three DVDs! Not a bad deal!

What bargains!!! I was curious what the tape series by Sproul was on. His commentary after 9/11 was one of the best I've heard.

Wow! You really scored! What is the thing with That Girl on the cover? Is that a book or a DVD? I LOVE That Girl! TV Land had a marathon of it and I recorded most of it. She was soooo cute!

That's very cool - what a bargain! Oh yeah, I see "That Girl" among your purchases - used to watch that show on TV faithfully back in the day. I loved to see her clothes - very stylish at the time.

Sondra said...

I just love buying cheap magazines! Great find for you!

Becky said...

Ha! I read Yours, Mine and Ours when I was a kid. And That Girl(!) how fun.

I'd love to share those magazines with you. After you have torn out your articles and cut out your pictures and recipes (heehee). At least, that is how it goes around here.

Good haul friend!

Anna S said...

This does look like a very good deal!

Anita said...

Oh lucky you! So many treasures for such a good price! Lucky you!

Unfortunately, I don't know that Victoria Mag but I've seen Country Living magazines on other blogs. Well and I would LOVE to read it, too! But unfortunately, your US magazines are not available here in Germany... ;-((

Happy reading (now that the days are getting shorter).

Have a blessed week-end!
