I spent some time yesterday going through my bookshelves and all the little hiding spots that my books are in. I have piles of them that I keep meaning to do something with, but yet, here they sit.
Wednesday, I ventured into a little used bookstore called "The Book Addict". Right there, in the front window was a copy of Jenny Lawsons "Let's Pretend This Never Happened". If you have no idea who Jenny Lawson is, you should pop over to her blog and read some of her stuff. She's funny in a very weird sort of way, which I love. Her book has had me laughing right from the first page. :)
Anyhow, I asked the lady at "The Book Addict" if they bought books, and she said yes. Oh-my-gosh! Now, I am not expecting to get tons of bucks for the 40 - 50 books I'm trying to get out of my house, but I'll be happy with a little something to add toward one of my top four goal.
I'm not going to lie and tell you that I didn't buy any books this week. I did. Twice. I bought three books for about $25 at one used bookstore, and $17 on another five at another bookstore. When I brought them home, I had to make room for them, so I grabbed a box, and starting clearing out books that need to find new homes.
I've started the annual declutter (LOL). Let's see how long it lasts this time. Maybe I can actually get rid of some stuff that I really don't need to have.
