Book Sale Euphoria!

Look-y , look-y , look-y!

I LOVE book sales! Especially when most of the books are $1.00 or less, are classic ones that are on the lists you have carefully compiling, and especially when those books are in GREAT shape.  Last week’s adventure was particularly satisfying – check this out!

Just for fun:

Walt Disney’s Zorro ( we LOVE the old TV show from the 50’s and this is a book written almost verbatim from the show, knowing the story line is a fun way to help HorseyBug with her reading fluency.)
