Recently, I went to one of my favorite bookstores. The total duration of the trip was about a half hour.
For most the most part, I am an in and out type of shopper. I like to give myself a time limit along with my budget to make sure of that. Even when thrift shopping, I manage to find what I want and get done quickly. Bookstores are another story. I seem to get lost in these places. I’m not even sure what made me drive over there this week. I just got 14 books from the library! I know- sad.
On this trip, I spent about an hour and a half. I filled up my cart with all the books I was interested in- about 12. My son managed to slip in another handful also.
Even though we homeschool and have our own book collection, we visit the library often. We like to keep a variety of reading books in the house at all times. I don’t buy too many novels or literature books because of that. For non-homeschool books, my typical rules for purchasing are:
- Can it be found online for free?
- Is it less than $10?
- Will it be used for more than one person in the house?
- Can it be later gifted to a friend or family member?
- Will it actually be read?
Now here comes the fun part. Actually finding a place in my already overflowing bookcase to put these new items. Maybe I’ll DIY one of my dresser’s I bought from a yard sale last year.
