I love to read. I collect public library cards. I have 4 in my wallet right now. Every library has a slightly different selection and you never know what you will find. I get a feeling of well being when I go to a book store or library. As long as there are books, the world will be OK. Half Price Books has an extra 20% throughout the store every Memorial Day weekend. I hit it up this weekend. I usually hit the craft area and the travel books. I picked up a copy of 1000 Place to See Before You Die a couple years ago and have been slowly marking different spots off. My best purchase there was Time for a Chain. I used it to make a solid double Irish chain. It was just a really good book for a classic quilt.
I was very discerning with my choices because I can go a bit overboard. I walked away with only two books which is great for me. Quilt in a Day's Log Cabin for $4.98 plus 20% and Quilt of Joy. Quilt of Joy looks a bit like the quilters version of Chicken Soup for the Soul, but the back cover looked interesting.
So if you are near a Half Price Books this weekend, check it out. Every store has different inventory so you never know what you can find.
