Box Sale! YEAH
I am a huge book nerd. I will (and have) read just about anything. True crime, fiction, biographies, sci-fi, how-to, computer, gardening, parenting, text books, kids books; I draw the line at romance.
I frequent the library and the used book stores in my community. I read a book and share with friends. There are some books that are too good to give up, so currently there are seven full sized book shelves in my house, that contain books that I have read at least once and will read again. I have three novels in progress at any given time, and a stack of text books for school. If I start a book, I HAVE to finish it, no matter how awful it may be.
Luckily for me, The Book Depot is in St. Catharines. Even better they have box sales!
Warning, a box sale is not for the faint of heart.
Yesterday, I went with husband and kiddo, were there before 9am. The parking lot was FULL, the boys in the yellow safety vests were directing cars to an empty lot down the road. The carts were all in use. The warehouse was blocked! (I will add here that the warehouse is not air conditioned). And you had to wait in line to pay 30 minutes.
But, I got me some great reads! Managed to squeeze 48 books in the box. I spent yesterday afternoon floating in the pool, reading one of my new books (from cover to cover) and started number 2 last night.
