Our Latest Book Sale Adventure: A 15-Pound Treasure Trove of Used Books!

As an avid reader and self-proclaimed bibliophile, there’s nothing quite like the thrill of a used book sale. The anticipation, the hunt for hidden gems, and the satisfaction of finding that perfect book at a fraction of its original price—all contribute to the experience

Recently, my husband and I attended a used book sale at our local public library, and I’m excited to share our latest book haul adventure with you!

The day began with a mix of excitement and strategy. We arrived early, armed with our reusable tote bags and a game plan. The venue was buzzing with fellow book lovers, each eagerly scanning the tables stacked high with books of every genre.

After sifting through countless titles, and making some tough decisions, we emerged victorious. Our combined efforts yielded an impressive 15 pounds of books! For comparison, during my last solo outing to a used book sale, I managed to haul 20 pounds of books by myself. This time, it felt great to share the experience … and the load… with my husband.

Among the treasures we found were a mix of cookbooks, biographies, craft books, and some history.

While I’ve always enjoyed my solo trips to book sales, having a partner in crime was nice. We discovered new books we thought the other might like and we’re already looking forward to the next sale.

We bicycled home with our load of books and a great sense of accomplishment :)
