~ A Great Little Used Book Store ~

I just love this little used book store....it has a huge selection of paper back and hard back books and what is especially nice it is so neat and well organized, plus the owner plays the most lovely classical music.....makes browsing most enjoyable. Right now I'm reading The Shack....I'm nearly finished and I got to looking at my book stash. Oh, my gosh...not many there, only three....I need more. I have a little list of books I'm looking for, so I headed to Crawford's. I didn't find any from my list but I did find these........
Two cozy mysteries and a newish Sandra Brown which looks good plus two more. This should keep me busy for awhile.......reading is wonderful, I've travelled the world without leaving my little home. If you are a reader you know what I mean..if not, find a book and enjoy....hugs, Linda

Sounds like an enchanting little store to spend the afternoon browsing. Looks like you have some good reading for the rainy days of April!

Oh Good for you!! I need to go through my books...I'm sure I have a few that were given to me that I haven't read yet.

My book stash is slowly shrinking and I am getting ready to go to the next library book sale to stock up.

Your used book store looks wonderful.

God bless.

I know what you mean about your stash. I do not like for mine to get too low and heaven forbid I finish the last one and have nothing to read, I would panic.

When I lived in Chattanooga, there was a used bookstore that I used to go to regular. They kept a point system based on books you brought in and you just spent your points. That is sort of the way my Bookins is online only I have to pay shipping. Still the books are cheaper than new ones.

I see you have one by Judi Picoult. I find her books a little depressing.

Oh yes I do know what you mean Linda. I must admit that my living room looks like a used bookshop...lol! I am never without a good book to read. My stack of things to be read it too large now. I am also making space on my bookshelves by giving my books to a friend. She in turn passes them on to others too. I have read the coffee house mysteries and they are good. I just finished the first of Maggie Sefton's Knitting mysteries which I had purchased for my mother one year. She passed them on to me and they are also very good. Have you read them?

Hugs ~

Oh, how I agree with you. My favorite places are book stores and libraries. I love everything about books - reading them, holding them, the smell of old books. I also keep a stash of books to read although I keep going to the library and my stash is there as a backup.

I have read the Sandra Brown book. That looks like a very good stack. I haven't read the other
three.
That looks like a neat store.
I have two books I just borrowed that I am going to put on my blog.
Have a great day.

I use to read a book a day but the last few years I'm afraid I've let the computer take over my spare time! lol We have a little used book store near here but it's so cramped in there, it actually makes me feel claustrophobic. Happy reading:-) xoxo

I love books!!

It won't be long now, until the annual friends of the library book fair. I always find great books at bargain prices there, plus we meet at least one of the kids and sometimes more, for fun book shopping and lunch afterward.
