I love scouring garage sales and estate sales for books…even the oldest and most seen as useless to us now. The dusty jackets of many hard-covered that line the wall. The example of generations of reading and the changes the word has gone through right there on someones shelf, compared to another someones shelf, and compared to mine.
I really enjoy buying books in ways that give the most to the author but sometimes you find a great buy in a weed filled yard and who can pass up an entire random box of books for a dollar? I often find a lot of Oprah these days. Women of these households certainly went through their phases in life…and then there are school books, children’s books, fantasy and romance, self help and politics and by one box sitting on someones front lawn you can earn an entire story right there. Stories for me are not just found in books but often stories can surround books even without being read.
