A buck a bag

The buck a bag sale is a success! :D We're very happy about it but it means a lot of extra work, hehe. You have no idea how tiring it is to lift so many boxes filled with books, put them in the shelves and fix the mess people leave after going through the material :/ ...

So far, I've spent $3 and these are some of the books I bought :P.
I've found vintage fashion books, yay!

This is a book I should've bought a long time ago when I was in college.

I couldn't resist getting this book about Argentina ;) and another one about Edward Hopper, my favorite American painter.

I got these two best sellers I wouldn't have paid their full price for.

Erm, yes, I got a children's book about all the presidents in the USA, haha. I thought it was a good summary; it brings cards with each president's highlights.

I'm looking forward to reading these ones :).

I also got myself a few magazines.

I bought some books for friends ;).

And I got these two to fill up my bags. I've been browsing the green one, and, omg! It's a blast. I'm sure I'll be sharing some its pages here.

I bought more books, but I left them at the library because I was carrying enough weight already. Not bad for just $3, huh? ;)

Don't forget to check your local library for special bargains!

I can't believe you got these books! There are some that seem to be awesome, like the one of the useless inventions ;)
