a new find


for those of you that live near the lakewood mall, have you visited the 'one dollar bookstore' that just opened up in march, located near joann's? i just went today to check it out and was pretty excited about the find. i am always on the lookout for inexpensive children's books cause even though we enjoy borrowing books from the library i think it's vital for kids to have books they can read again and again and again...without the worry of renewing. :)

ALL the books in the store are $1! they are not in top notch condition necessarily and you do need to sift through them since they are not displayed in a terribly organized fashion but for a buck i think it's worth it. they are displayed on shelves along the walls but they are not alphabetized by author or anything.

i took both kids with me this time but i think next time i'll leave them at home with papa so i can really enjoy searching. ever since i visited my parents in texas and was introduced to half price books i have been searching for something like here. i think this is the closest thing!

I know of this bookstore and fell in love with it too when I found it. To think you could buy one book elsewhere for $12.99, and there you'd walk away with 13 books. Gotta love it!

That is so cool! I want to go with you sometime. Maybe we could trade-off wrangling kids and searching for books.
