Bargain Book Bonanza (28): Narnia Edition

 Welcome to Bargain Book Bonanza!

Lesa is hosting this week!

 I'm not much of a gambler but book hunting at my particular Goodwill is always a sure bet especially in the children's book section.  And at only twenty cents a pop for paperbacks, I splurge like crazy. Why, I've even been known to buy 10 or 15 books at a time!  

  Love my Goodwill store but sometimes I can't get over some of the books that have been donated. 
Recently, I was astounded to see Narnia books offered. Narnia?! What is up with that? Narnia books are keepers!

There were multiple copies of four of the books available and I chose the best of each... 

To keep forever and ever...  or until they fall apart.

Actually book friends, even fall aparts are safe at my house. Look at this Narnia set that I bought used over twenty years ago.

It has literally been read to pieces... mainly by me.

I intended to give it the old heave-ho as replacements were acquired but it is sooo difficult.

Is it difficult for you to toss tattered copies of beloved books?

BBB is a book haul linky party for bargain loving bookworms!

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

  1. It can be difficult to toss out (recycle) old books but if the pages are falling out I have no choice.

  2. WoW! That's lovely!!....I need to get myself my own Narnia series. I've never read the books, you know. Sad, huh? A friend leant me her series copy but I haven't touched it yet 'cause I want to read it for the first time when I OWN it! :D....

    Btw, last week I picked up a Terry Pratchet, a Mary Stewart and Wharton's Ethan Frome for Rs 49...that would be about a dollar - a VERY good price for us! :D

  3. I think you created a new hobby. Book hunting.
