Treasure Mine or Rubbish Pile

thrift

“As much as a man may who has no money to spend. Now and then I pick up something in the rubbish heap; and I go and look on at the big sales.” The House of Mirth, Edith Wharton

The Community Thrift in the city is a treasure mine for those who are up for a bargain. They’ve got lots of books for under $2. From time to time I pick up something in fairly good condition from there. Books are grouped under categories and genres, in alphabetical order of author’s last name. They have new arrivals every week, thanks to the hoarders living in small quarters in a small city.

  1. I love shopping at my library’s used bookstore. I am amazed at how many books I find that are so inexpensive and don’t even look like they’ve ever been read. I always imagine that non-readers have received them as gifts and pawn them off on the library’s bookstore, the first chance they get.
