Shopping Library Book Sales

If you're looking for some new summer reads for you or the kiddos this summer, don't forget to check out local library book sales. You can get all kinds of great books for an even greater price. Pick up old classics, or try out a new author at very little cost. If you're like me, you'll head straight for the old classics and vintage sections. Check out these great finds I scored at my public library.

Nancy Drew books: (1966, 1940, 1962)

Harvard Classics: Origin of Species -Darwin (1909), Autobiography from 1931, Complete Works of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1903)

The Octopus (1901), Kidnapped - Robert Louis Stevenson (1948)

The Young Folks Shelf of Books #4 Hero Tales (1948), The Straw Ox and Other Tales (1948), The Crowded House and Other Tales (1950) 

The Straw Ox and Crowded House books are filled with stories to be read with sound effects like old radio plays. How cute is that?!

Combat The Counterattack- Based on the Television Series (1966)

Check out the awesome illustrations this book has!

Gaston Lays an Offshore Pipeline (1979)

This one also has great illustrations. Although my husband doesn't work directly with the pipelines, he does work in oil drilling, so we just HAD to get this book.

See all the great treasures you can find! We got all these books and two others not shown here for $20! There were so many others I wanted to get as well. Even if you never read them, you can use old books to decorate with. You can also pick up a few cheap paperbacks to use in your crafting projects. Using book pages for art and decorating is all over the blogosphere right now. So get out there and show your local library some love!
