The library book sale on Friday was wonderful. The children’s selection was very good this time. Sometimes when I go it’s not so great but this year ws pretty good. One year my friend and I found 60 COFA’s. We took them all and split them up later!
Here’s some of my finds:
~The Complete Guide to Middle-Earth
~The Gift of Music (Great Composers and Their Influence)
~The Silimarillion; in hardback!! My pb is falling apart. This is a first edition.
~Egyptians Designs; A Dover Electronic Clip Art book with the CD still sealed. We’re studying ~Ancient Egypt next year and this will be great.
~Grocery Cart Math–no writing
~The Land of Fair Play (CLP)–American Civics from a Christian Perspective
~The Weather Book (USA Today)
~…….If You Lived at Time of the Great San Francisco Earthquake
~Rulers of Britian (from Roman Times to Elizabeth II)
~Life Science/100 Reproducible Activities–no writing
~LLATL Gray/Student Activity Book–again no writing!
~My Dear Cassandra (Letters Jane Austen wrote to her sister)
~Johnny Tremain–a nice hardback to replace the pb I have. This appears to be a first edition.
~The Narnia Cookbook; beautiful hardback with dust jacket–looks new
~Martin Luther by May McNeer and Lynd Ward; I enjoy this husband/wife team

~Peter Rabbit’s Cookery Book; don’t these recipes sound good? Patty-Pan Pie, Appley Dapply’s Jam Tarts, Jeremy Fisher’s Butterfly Sandwiches and Mrs. Rabbit’s Currant Buns
~The Wind in the Willows; a beautiful copy illustrated by Ernest Shepard (Winnie-the-Pooh); I already own a copy illustrated by Tasha Tutor. Which do I keep? They are both beautiful!
~Alexander the Great (Horizon Caravel)
~Kings of the Crusades (Horizon Caravel)
The Renaissance (Eyewitnes Art); this is used but in like-new condition
~Don’t Count Your Chicks by Ingri & Edgar Parin d’Aulaire; I was so excited to pick up this book as I have never seen any of their other books besides the famous biographies. It appears to be a first edition.
~The Yearling; beautiful hardback to replace a library discard
~The last two were my “finds of the day”! Both are considered rare and valuable.
~A Child’s History of Art by Hillyer and Huey
~Norse Gods and Giants by the d’Aulaires
I only came home with two boxes and that’s good for me! I left a lot of wonderful books there such as some Landmarks and We Were Theres because I just don’t have the room for them and I’m not selling books anymore. My friend, who also homeschools and sells books, picked up a lot of what I didn’t want. She sells at our local regional homeschool group and our state convention so I know they’ll be in good hands!
By the way, the library decided not to put out the rare children’s book with the higher prices so I paid 50 cents each for these wonderful books!! God is so good to bless my little home library in this way.
