Majorly Disappointed!! (Book Haul)

OK, remember I was just saying the other day how I was excited about my librarys annual booksale, which was yesterday?? But then I said I didn't want to get too excited because I didn't want to be disappointed basically...well, I was MAJORLY DISAPPOINTED!!

Yeah, and I was not the only one...usually the annual booksales take up a whole conference room with books still in boxes that couldn't fit on the tables. Well, this year all the books took up literally 8 6ft tables plus SOME (because that is all there were) paperbacks on 4 4ft racks. It was absolutely horrible! Even the lady working it said so. She couldn't believe how bad it was this year. There just weren't donations coming in over the year.

I only got 2 books from there...I had a budget to work with and with the books costing .75 I figured I could get around 50 books, if I spent my whole budget....yeah, that didn't happen. I spent $1.50!!

There literally were NO children's books and maybe about half a dozen YA books, with 3 that did not have covers. Very, very sad... :(

So here is my youtube video showing what I got at that sale, what I got at the library book store and what I got in my mailbox (oh, plus Walmart & Plato's Closet)...

Plato's Closet-Jerk, California by Johnathan Friesen
Library Book Store-The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult
Library Book Sale-Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, Dangerous Girls by RL Stine (for my daughter)
Walmart-Morganville Vampires Vol. 2 by Rachel Caine
IMM-Glass by Ellen Hopkins, Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Until next time, Have a good "read"...


  1. How disappointing!! I'm sorry to hear it went so badly. Maybe you'll hit a good sale that will make up for it?

  2. That would be great. But it left me discouraged and I actually haven't bought a book since. (OK, so it's only Sunday). :)
