the semi-annual library book sale

Our local library recently held its twice annual book sale to raise money. I always seem to find something good~some years, a whole book bag filled to overflowing.
This year:
Wives & Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskill (of which BBC did a miniseries)
The Black Arrow by Robert Lewis Stevenson
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
The Complete Book of Knitting (I've been wanting a good knitting reference book)
Quick Country Decorating
an issue of Blueprint magazine
Country Chic by Liezel Norval-Kruger

I was happy!

Here are some photos from Country Chic which I especially like and which you may find inspiring...

And a note to Karen, who had a question about the bias tape maker~please e-mail me as I don't seem to have your e-mail address ~ thanks!!


  1. I really like the cover of your Wives & Daughters! Looks like you got a very good assortment.

  2. Those look like some great books. Our local library has an annual book sale too. I always load up. I especially love the homemaking books.

    If you ever tire of the Country Chic book you can just send it on down to Georgia!! I will have to check and see if our Library has book sales.

  4. I found those photos very inspirational. Thank you for taking the time to photograph and share them!

    Another library sale lover here...we have gotten so many that I think it may be time to go through and find new homes for some.

    I love your blog!

  9. Great books--I love finds like this.

  10. We're big supporters of our library book sale, only our books are going in the other direction--as donations. A friend of mine who knows I love to read, just brought me a huge box of novels. Looks like both you and I will have our noses in books for a while. Bliss!

  11. I love library sales!!! You scored some great stuff.

  12. Love books and you found some great reads! Enjoy. Linda

  13. Oh, I love library book sales, especially the once or twice a years ones. Our local library has a book store. That's just not as fun, although I do check it out quite often. Looks like you got some good ones!

  14. You seem to have stocked up for winter and expect a few evenings curled up under a rug with a good book. Enjoy!

    Blessings and bliss
