I went to the Goodwill the other day to look for a coat to replace an old worn out coat. (Found one for eight bucks, SCORE!) and checked out the books. They were TOTALLY lacking in any young adult books. But guess what I discovered right in the same shopping center? The Montgomery County Friends of the Library used book store! Are you telling me that this has been right in my neighborhood all this time and I’ve never realized it???? Shame on me!
So I got Deenie, Blubber and It’s Not the End of the World by Judy Blume, A Time for Andrew by Mary Downing Hahn…..and two more that are escaping me at the moment. I REALLY wanted Just as Long as We’re Together by Judy Blume because I freaking LOVED that book, but that seems to be the only one of her books I’m having trouble finding via library or used book store. I also got a Curious George and a Frank & Ernest for my son. He really wanted a Clifford book, but I couldn’t find any. The best part is that the books were only Fifty Cents each! Double Score!
I started a new blog. Because I’m a big dork. Actually, I’ve had a more personal blog on myspace for about three years now. But I’m not really in to the myspace much anymore, and neither are any of my friends who were readers. So I just transferred that blog over her to Blogger. It’s right here, in case you’re interested.
