My mom and I finally got to take the kids to a used book place that we've been wanting to visit for ages. They have DVDs and CDs too. Its in a flea market type place and everything is $1 or $3 if it's a set. They have things somewhat organized by category but otherwise you get to browse through and I love that! The building isn't air conditioned so it was kind of hot but we will go back again in the fall. I might have walked out spending an even $20... But I'd paid for my mom's things since she had taken DD to the bathrooms. And a few things were gifts.

I found some books that were illustrated fashion history by decade; so I got a few for my bestie who was going to come but has had a cold. DD found herself a cookbook she's been reading. (Literally reading a cookbook and asking me about the ingredients. :crazy:) DS found a big history of NASA book and a compilation book of pictures of things on cats. He thinks it's hilarious and keeps showing us all stuff. I found some travel books on places hes interested in too. The Christian fiction section was kind of small and I found a number of books I've already read but they still had some good looking stories so I got a few to make my purchase even.

I found out they do trade ins also. So this could be a really good resource for us in the future. The vintage section looked neat. Hopefully I can browse that better when it's cooler. ;)
Sounds like am amazing! place to visit, and with fantastic prices.

At those prices it's not so bad if you buy a book and don't love it. Especially if you do trade stuff in. I like to re-read; but I'm sure I could trade in a lot still! I even found some OLD school textbooks. My mom worked for a school for the Deaf when I was a kid and she brought me home some old reading textbooks and I loved them! They were fun to play school or just read. This place gets big pallets of used books from all over; so I think things will change there often too. It felt like a treasure hunt. :cloud9:
