Library Beat Down
On the first Saturday of every month my local library holds their Book Sale. It starts at 10:00am, but I will bet money that the elderly ladies sleep outside the night before! I always get there right at 10:00 and there is a thousand people with 10 parking spaces! Looking for books is supposed to be fun right? Wrong! There is so much elbowing and profanity and that's just what I contribute! And on top of that some people bring their dogs! Don't get me wrong - I love dogs! But there is a time and place for them and the library at 10:00am on the first Saturday of every month and in my way is NOT the place!
In between the elbowing and shoving I did manage to find some great books!
The Six Wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir
Ahab's Wife by Sena Jeter Naslund
Peter the Great by Robert K. Massie
The Last Elizbethan: A Portrait of Sir Walter Ralegh (1972)
The Medieval West by David Nicholas (can't find info on this one!)
All of these plus three more for my daughter for a whopping $4! That is definitely worth the drama!
