There are days when I have this occasional urging to jump in the car and head to my favorite Goodwill. There, I almost always without fail find wonderful books. Yesterday was one of those days and as usual, I wasn’t disappointed! I grabbed a copy of Jane Eyre and The Secret Life of Bees, although I’ve already read those and they are some of my favorites (you never can have enough copies to loan out to friends), a beautiful, almost new copy of Thoreau, a marked up copy of The Great Gatsby and a big ‘Farm Cookbook,’ and the first Harry Potter which I didn’t photograph.
In additon to my books, I snagged a sweet skirt with a Bohemian vibe that comes to a nice, long length. It’s just the skirt I was looking for. I also found some really nice plus size tops.
There’s nothing like Goodwill for some great treasure hunting!
Hmmm…I wonder what I’ll read first?

I LOVE thrift shop finds, I always find good books too!!!!!! these are some good ones you found!

I love treasure hunting for books! I haven’t read it yet, but my friends tell me Little Earthquakes is a great book. Enjoy your finds!
I am another ‘Goodwill addict’!! I especially like to go when it is 50% off Saturday. Last time I scored about 8 books all for 50 cents to 1 dollar each! I also got a new purse and new cosmetic bags. I am such a bag lady! Who can resist a nie $2 purse! Glad to know we have this in common, I have many ‘treasures’ in our house from Goodwill and other thrift stores!
I don’t have a goodwill near me, i don’t think; however, I do a lot of trading at paperback bookswap and bookmooch, so I think i make up for it there. Dontcha love having too many books and not enough time?
