Book Sale Bargains

I love a good book sale. Whether it’s a second hand book sale, a library stock sale, or a warehouse sale, I. Am. There.

Today’s exciting book sale was the Scholastic Warehouse Sale where you could buy a box for $40 and fill it with as many books as could fit. I initially went there to see if I could find some good picture books, but was pleasantly surprised to find there was a lot of YA there. A wonderful discovery and one that put my Tetris skills to the test because I wanted to fit as many books in my small box as I could which was a challenge with different sizes and a box that Did Not want to fit things nicely.

In the end I succeeded and walked away with 24 books, 21 in my box and three from the separate discounted section. I found a mix of YA, junior fiction, and picture books to add to my collection. All of which I have zero room for, but who doesn’t love a good project of reorganising the bookshelves and trying to fit in more books?

A few of the books I bought were completing a series, that I had on my TBR list, or were nice new fancy shiny special edition copies that I needed to have but a lot I took a chance on because they sounded really interesting. This is what I walked away with:

Claudia and Mean Janine by Ann. M. Martin

Disappearing Act by James Moloney

Beautiful Mess by Claire Christian

Woeful Second World War by Terry Deary

Making Bombs for Hitler by Forchuk Skrypuch

Of course to top off my hour spent inside as I was leaving Clifford the Big Red Dog walked in with the Very Cranky Bear. I wasn’t able to grab a picture but you can see their adventures on the Scholastic YouTube channel. Overall it was a very rewarding morning.
