This was a scene I encountered a week ago at a familiar location.
The folks at my local library were trying to clean out their overload of books by offering many of them for sale at bargain prices in a used book sale. The books were displayed just outside the front entrance of the library and local bibliophiles were having a great time perusing the collection and searching for good deals.
I had to prowl the piles of written material myself having had a lifelong love of books. Regular readers here may remember that SWMBO and I owned and ran a bookstore called BOOKENDS here for 7 years.
I was tempted numerous times by some of the titles but then I remembered our bookshelves at home with so many volumes waiting to be read.
And then SWMBO, noticing what I was doing, reminded me of the normally closed cabinet with the cookbooks!
By the time I got around to taking this picture, our curious big black cat, Blackwell, had discovered a new niche to be explored. I didn't notice him in there until I was editing the pictures.
Having taken this inventory, I am glad I refrained from buying any more books at the library book sale.
