How true is this?! I found it on Pinterest and thought it was cute! I had to share because Audrey and I just recently went to our library's annual book sale. This book sale is great because it is not only books that the library is getting rid of, but mostly books that have been donated by people. So it is HUGE, and there is a wonderful mix of old and new.

This year, we made out even better than last year! Audrey got 21 books, I got 11, and we got a few for my nephew and niece. The best part? All of them together were only $23!!!! We both love to read so we were happy as clams!

She has so many books, we don't know what to do with them all though. We recently put a bookshelf in her bedroom and moved some of the books from the playroom up there. But I think I'm going to have to do another cleaning out so her new books have a place to live! I'm such a book hoarder though. I can't bring myself to get rid of any of them. So I try to rotate them, and the ones that are too young for her now go in a box in the attic. Hopefully someday her kids will be bookworms, too, and will be able to enjoy all of her favorite childhood books!

that is an amazing haul!! We have tons of books too and I just love sitting down with the kids as part of their bedroom routine and reading to them. Lauren is starting to be able to read along with me. that warms my heart.
