Giant Book Sale

For the past few days, the Friends of the Jacksonville Public Library have been having a massive book sale benefiting the Jacksonville Public Library. I love to read, so of course I went.

Today, it was $10 bag day. Fill up a brown paper bag with books and the entire thing is $10. I purchased a ton of books.

Below is the list of the books I purchased.

America on Six Rubles A Day by Yakov Smirnoff (autographed by him)
More Letters From A Nut by Jed L. Nancy
The Taming of the Screw by Dave Barry
In Our Humble Opinion by Tom and Ray Magliozzi (the guys from Car Talk)
Prelude to War (WWII) by Time Life
The Italian Campaign (WWII) by Time Life
The Battle of the Bulge (WWII) by Time Life

A note on the WWII books: These are from a 39 volume set, of which I only have 12. Most of the ones I have were my father’s, but I have been working to complete the set… evidently I haven’t been working very hard.
