#smileaday The Library Book Sale.

I'm on the board for my local Friends of the Public Library and today we had a pop up book sale. We usually have a spring and a fall book sale, but thanks to Marie Kondo encouraging everyone to examine their collections, we had a flood of donated books and had to hold an extra sale so our storage room could meet fire code.

I love our book sales. It's such a voyage of discovery, walking around and looking. The collection is far more eclectic and changeable than anything you'll find in even the quirkiest indie bookstore. Maybe there's a glut of cookbooks because a local cook decided to cull the collection; or maybe we have a ton of graphic novels because someone thought they were now too old for them. Maybe someone unpacked their old college books and decided they don't need that book of 17th century poets anymore.

The other great thing is spending my day with book addicts, who are looking for odd things and are thrilled by these serendipities. We'll all so grateful to feed our addictions so inexpensively, and getting karmic credit for library support at the same time.

It's a lovely way to spend a rainy afternoon for sure.
