Both kids had basketball games today, and in the break between my daughter and I took a little trip to my favorite used bookstore (the son had shoot-around practice before his game). I knew as I walked through the door that I was too weak, that I would walk out with at least one book. Well...how about eight books for myself, plus two for my daughter? It began when I saw a like-new copy of a book I've had on my Amazon wish list since early last spring - The Falconer's Knot. I couldn't believe the selection of good young adult fiction they had this time. I halfway think some teacher had purged his/her classroom library, because there were several copies of some books.
Anyway, I got a whole selection of new historical fiction. Fortunately, the bookstore happened to be having their Christmas open house, and they had 20% off everything, so I didn't have to take out a second mortgage! I think I'll tell my husband this is my Christmas present. After all, it's just what I wanted!
