'The Ship is About to Hit the Fan" was the quote printed on a note I found in a book I bought at the Friends of the Library Book Sale this afternoon.
The Friends of the Abilene Library have a three day annual book sale at the Civic Center. The last day which was today, Sunday afternoon, it is only $6 a bag for as many books as you can stuff in the bag. This is a big event for Abilene. The Abilene Reporter News reported that the Friends of the Library predicted making $50,000 and from the crowd at the Civic Center this afternoon, I believe it.
My Toastmaster friend told me she spent a $100 at the book sale yesterday. The first two days, hardbacks are $1.75/piece and paperbacks only 75 cents.
I went today (Sunday) thinking to buy one bag of books but sure enough I bought two bags of books instead of just one.
I got an eclectic grouping of books from a Mary Higgins Clark mystery to Bartletts Book of Quotations to an algebra text for my son.
Then thinking more of home staging, I got 2 books just because the covers are red! Books are a handy tool for homestaging. Books can be used for the traditional purpose to to add to a book shelf, or to stand alone as decor perhaps displayed on an easel, or laid open on a couch or chair, or used as a prop to add height or substance to a decor group,
