Check out this immense pile of books - 25 of them, for $25.00 at the Denville Book Barn! (It's on Pocono Road in Denville NJ, hours are 9 to 1 on Tuesdays & Saturdays. And yes, they take donations too, but only 2 bags or 2 boxes at a time.)
You'll notice there are a lot of different types of books in the pile. This is because I am responsible for keeping my father, my mother and my aunt in books, and buying used is a good way to do it, especially since for some strange reason my mother has a complex about library books. She is afraid they will get lost in her house and she will owe a fine.
My dad will occasionally agree to read a library book, but it makes Mom nervous even knowing that there is one in their house. My aunt and I are the only two people in my family who use the library regularly.... and although my parents claim they have library cards, I fear they may have expired long ago.
Now please excuse me, I have to go get some reading done!
