Do you ever visit fetes late in the day? When the stall holders announce "fill up a box/bag for $5, no, $2, no, just take it all, it's free..."?
Last Sunday, I did just that - and walked away with a box of 60+ books (because in announcing they were free, they mentioned that leftover books were thrown out because op-shops have refused them in the past! Seriously, that is sad). I did make a donation, because it seemed wrong not to.
I think I well and truly got my money's worth.
Some books have already been delivered to an op-shop (I'm delivering little bundles in the hope that it will increase their chances of being accepted). Others - new or practically new - have been stashed away to give to family and friends. Others we will be "auditioning" and treating almost like library books - try them out for a few weeks, and if we don't absolutely love them, we'll give them away.
Some will most definitely be staying with us - a Tove Jansson book (thank you, MMMC for the introduction to her work), a cat book that I remember from school, and a 1950 edition of Just So Stories (and a few others, but I thought you might get bored with picture after picture of books!).
I think our home is turning into a library... but perhaps that's not such a bad thing.
I'm sure Sophie would agree (and if you visit her later, I'm sure you'll see some lovely finds!)
