Treasures at the Library Book Sale

My local public library held a book sale over the weekend and I stopped by on Sunday afternoon to browse. After a relaxing morning spent listening to Jamie Cullum's latest jazz album, browsing used books on a rainy afternoon was really the perfect way to spend the day. Here are the treasures I purchased, total cost: $12.

Chief Modern Poets of England and America 1960
Shakespeare's Major Plays and Sonnets 1948
Victorian Household Hints
Picnic: 125 Recipes with 29 seasonal Menus
Clambakes & Fish Fries: 23 All American Seafood Celebrations
Fine Art Reproductions: Old and Modern Masters
Watercolor Techniques
Painting Country Gardens in Watercolor, Pen & Ink
Private View: Inside Baryshnikov's American Ballet Theatre
The Kennedy Style: Magical Evenings in the White House
Once Upon a Time in Great Britain: A Travel Guide to the Sights and Settings of Your Favorite Children's Stories

I've already read through Once Upon a Time in Great Britain and have tons of ideas for my next trip to the UK. I'm now happily devouring the pictures in Baryshnikov's American Ballet which is really the most gorgeous coffee table art book. Find out when your local library sale might find some treasures while supporting libraries.
