I have always been a reader. I love to read. I love books....A LOT!! Seriously, I have a book disease...addiction...whatever you would want to call it. So nothing is more exciting to me than a HUGE book sale with the money going towards an organization that I feel does really good work. The Iowa Right to Life book sale is being held at Vets auditorium from the 9th to the 14th. Check this website for times and directions.

Last night, a friend and I went book crazy!! We joked about needing a shopping cart to haul our treasures when we got there and saw all the tables brimming with books. We picked a miniature shopping cart from the shopping cart coral and were on our way. Two and a half hours later (we didn't even get through it all before one of the volunteers starting counting down the minutes until closing time) we needed a bigger shopping cart than the one we picked. PURE BLISS!!

The haul!! This picture doesn't do it justice. I bought a ton of books! It was like Christmas this morning as the kids and I went through them all. Today is going to be a reading day for sure!! YAY!!

I, too, love books. Last night I went to the library with my husband and came home with a stack. My challenge is finding time to read it all.
