Savings is Fundamental UPDATE

As much as I love the idea of used bookstores, in practice, I hate going in them.  I don’t like the smell and they are so packed in that I feel claustrophobic in them.  But the other day, I went inside a used bookstore down the street and picked up two Dr. Seuss books.  (Green Eggs & Ham and I Can Read With My Eyes Shut)

J. and I read them to Max.  It had been a long time since we did that as it was too difficult to keep him quiet/interested before.  But this time, he seemed to be really paying attention.  He sat still, watched our mouths, watched the colorful pages.  It was really fun!  Especially for me since I had never read those books before.  (I moved to this country a little later in life.)

Anyhoo, the tab for both books?  $7 and change.  Much cheaper than buying them new, and Max would never know the difference.

    Garage sales are another good place for books. We bought a bunch at the MOT semi-annual sale last month. Marshalls also has cheap books if you have those in your area.

    Love Green Eggs, but my favorite Dr. Seuss was definitely One Fish, Two Fish. So glad story time is back for you!
