    1. Haha! I know, I want to find and buy ALL THE BOOKS! So sad that nome of these were even on the library shelves. They were in storage! We're supposed to get a bigger, better new central library in the next few years. I hope that means getting more books out of storage. Of course, I'd I ever hear of them thinning out that stuff with a sale, I'll be there in a heartbeat. So many treasures hidden away...
