Book Sale

My favorite used book sale occurs twice a year at the Sussex-Wantage Library.  I often find myself arranging visits home based on the schedule for these sales.  During the beginning of the sale, paperbacks cost 50 cents and hardcovers cost a dollar, but at the sale's closing, one can fill an entire paper bag full of books for a mere two dollars.  The proceeds support the library, and the sale has grown so much over the years that there are always excellent books and books in great condition.  I can't think of a better deal.  Today's damage was $7.50.  Here is my bounty:
