    Whoa!! How did you get them all out to your car? LOL. You're making me feel positively saintly that I only bought 20 at my last library sale. ;)

    Jennie ~ I need to learn to reign myself in :D I now have 374 books in my TBR pile. Thank goodness there's a few holidays coming up so I have some time to just lounge and read!

    Wow, that's a lot of books! Very good deal. I'm reading Julie Garwood's The Wedding right now. I love that book!

    Izzy ~ It's too many books! I have close to 400 books in my tbr pile now, although I am excited about quite a few of my finds yesterday. I need to spend less time on the computer and more time reading, or I'll never get through them!

    LMAO! Jeez, Dev. That list just kept going and going and going!

    You got some great books, though. I hope you find lots of time to read!

    Holly ~ Yup. And I'm going out today to buy the Laurie Brown book. I'm taking the last two weeks of December off, then of course a 4-day weekend for Thanksgiving. Wonder how much of a dent I can make in the pile?

    Holy-freakin-crap!! I kept pushing the down arrow...and pushing the down arrow...geez! Great haul though!

    Jodi ~ I have no self control. I admit it. My name is Dev and I'm a book-aholic.

    hee my last library sale was forever ago, at least two weeks...

    My first box was 4 dollars. They were 10 cents each. LOL yeah do the math, as I left she said oh come back we are about to do our dollar sale.

    A DOLLAR! And you get whatever you can put in the bag. I got two.

    See I don't think of it as book buying. Oh no, it is a selfless donation. No really.

    Travis ~ It was a heavy box. That's for sure. And it's still in my living room, because I don't have anywhere to put them.

    Sybil ~ The dollar sale was today. I thought about going, but didn't. I figured I did enough damage on Friday.

    Holy cow!! How freakin' fantastic is that?? You go!

     
  • At 9:08 PM, Blogger Dev

    Lori ~ I still don't know when I'm going to read these. And I'm out of drawers in my linen closet. :-)

     
  • At 9:39 PM, Blogger Rosie

    Amazing! You have some great books in there though. Can't wait to see what you read first.

     
  • At 8:19 AM, Blogger Dev

    Rosie ~ There's a few I'm eyeing. I need to finish some of the books on my TBR list first though :-)
