The library book sale

 

I love the first weekend in May because it’s the weekend that our public library holds its annual book sale. Every year I go, empty bag at the ready, and cart home more books that I really don’t need. My excuse this year is that I am shopping for my classroom library. According to reading and writing expert, Kelly Gallagher, a classroom library should have 2500 books in it. I have a loooong way to go and the prospect of buying all those books fills me with great joy!

I was able to purchase 20 books today for the bargain price of $16.50. And I can’t wait to go back tomorrow.
