Bargain Book Bonanza (5)

Welcome to the fifth edition of Bargain Book Bonanza!

BBB is a linky party to showcase all the great books (new, used, vintage, electronic, audio) that we book lovers score on sale.

Each Monday through Thursday, all book lovers are invited to carouse, make merry and revel with bargain book abandon!

Want to join the party? Just visit the Bargain Book Bonanza page for the particulars.

Lesa's Bargain Book Bonanza
Hello, bargain book lovers! This is not the BBB that I planned to post this week. I had intended to show the books Talon and I bought at the Scholastic Book Fair last week. We got some goodies and one of the pictures book is an absolute delight.

But, my friends, you will have to wait to see the books and Talon's vlog review.  Why? Because I'm sick as a dog and too groggy to take photos or film,  that's why.  Just a miserable cold but it is a bad one.  If I could only get enough oxygen!!  And is there anything more maddening than a nose that is stopped up but drippy at the same time?!! Ugh!!   

Anyway, I know you will be grateful to miss my grossness on Talon's vlog-- and now you have something to look forward to-- a mystery picture book that is so cute you won't be able to stand it!

Until then, check out this Bargain Book Bonanza. It is full of cuteness too. Plus, I already had the photo ready to go. :o)

Guess where I picked up these fun little picture books?  At a yard sale for .25 each!

Do you ever stop at yard sales or garage sales to check for books?

Can't wait to see your Bargain Book Bonanzas! 


  1. Of course I do! Sorry that you are sick Lesa. I swear by generic 24 hour antihistamine pills, 12 hour Muconex and Aleve. If I catch it time I don't even get sick, sick. AND, I don't feel all drugged up on cold meds.

    Take care and get well ... I love your .25 books, btw.

    Kathy M.

  2. Oooh, those look good!
    I don't very often check out the books at garage sales. I used to, but either they weren't bargains or I just didn't like their I skip them.
    But, that's a good idea to look for children's books! I am going to start doing that.

  3. Kathy: Those muconex scare me! They look like horsepills! But I might try one next time my throat gets sore.

    Leslie: sometimes the kid books even cheaper that a quarter!

    You know, I think I had that exact Mickey Mouse Book when I was growing up! =D

    I'd be too sad to sell my own books at a yard sale, though. =( When my family moved out of our big home and couldn't take all our books, we ended up giving most of them to relatives instead of selling them to strangers. (That was another kind of bonanza for them, I expect! LOL . . .)

  5. Come to think of it, I had the Berenstein Bears B Book!

  6. Great find. Yes I always stop and yard sales and look at their books you never know what treasures you will find!
