Time/ money well spent!

I just found out that there's this cute little flea- market- books- only event being held just down my street so this day suddenly went from uneventful to uneventful with books! :)

  13. I go looking for yard sales and garage sales with my dad on the weekend sometimes and you can almost always find people selling their books off for 50 cents to a dollar each. It's really cool seeing what everyone has.

  54. You're pretty lucky. We don't have these kind of things here in Brazil.
    And it's also a nice way to spend your money.

    ReplyDelete
  55. @all or most of you:
    So, I spent some serious money on those books. But I don't mind.
    Mostly Croatian authors that most of you never heard about. Like Jergović and such. Also, if you catch a copy of any of his books in a language you understand, read it. That dude has some skills.
    And I bought this lovely copy of The Decameron really cheap.
    Nothing beats the smell of old books. :)
