Bargain Book Bonanza (25): Mrs. K's Yard Sale Gamble!

 Welcome to Bargain Book Bonanza!

A book haul linky party for bargain loving bookworms!

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

Lesa is hosting this week!

Hello, friends!  I'm so excited to share a BBB from the lovely Mrs. K! 

Just who in the world is Mrs. K, you ask? Well, she is the fun and fabulous librarian at one of my schools.  

Mind you,  I like all the librarians in my life but I think Mrs. K might just be my favorite.  (And not just because she lets me have my pick of the school library discards... really, that isn't why)

Typically, we chat via notes left under the computer keyboard and only get to visit in person a couple of times a year since we work at this school on different days of the week. Last week, Mrs. K worked on my day of the week.  What a pleasant surprise!

And what fun!  We talked and laughed all day (between work tasks, of course) and never ran out of topics-- mostly bookish topics but not all.

Ah, good conversation with a kindred spirit...

As the conversation turned to bargain books, Mrs. K showed me her recent spectacular yard sale find.   

(Sorry no photo of Mrs. K yet-- she is a bit camera shy but said I could take a photo of her on book fair day-- that is a snazzy day for school librarians)
A set of eight brand new never read Magic Tree House books for one dollar! One dollar! Can you believe it?! That is like twelve cents a book!

This set was a bit of gamble even at one dollar since the  books were bound as a set in very dirty raggedy plastic that looked as though it had been wet. But the books are absolutely pristine! 

Kudos, Mrs. K! You are a bargain book shopper extraordinaire!

If you have a bargain book, please share. We love to brag on bargains!


  1. YAY for Mrs. K! Very good bargain! have a librarian connection!
    I haven't gotten to the Magic Tree House books yet...will have to check them out!

  2. And may I say, your librarian friend WAS playing a little fast and loose with that dollar! Good thing it was all good...

  3. We read the Magic Tree House books to kids where I work almost every single day! They are sooo much fun :)

  4. Treating myself to blog hopping today, just popped over from Katherines Corner. I love books and these look super, will have to bookmark you and stop by again later today. TFS cheers

  5. Hello Lesa! I have a post that is ready for Baja! How can I post it? Let me know!

  6. Leslie: Haha, yes she was-- maybe I'd better work up a casino trip with Mrs. K!

    Jillian: Oh, that sounds like a good school to work at

    Katie: Thanks! Hugs to you to!

    Chris: Stop by any time-- we'd love to chat books with you!

    Maria: That is great news! I answered your email.
