Saturday Snapshot: October 1

Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online. (Click picture for close-up.)

I'm running a bit late on posting this week. But I have a REALLY g
ood excuse. At least all the bibliophiles will think so....


I spent a huge chunk of my day (and an hour last night) at our local Red Cross Book Sale. I came home with 54 new (to me) books. And here I am with my book loot. As my t-shirt says: There is no such thing as too many books....

Ooh, you must have had so much fun!

Vicki said...

I love book sales!! Loos like you hit the jackpot!!

Lisa said...

That's a great haul! I'm going to a book fair tomorrow and I hope I can restrain myself.

OMG.....you do have the BEST possible excuse for running late Bev....very fun shot. Enjoy the books.

Such a GREAT reason for posting late in the day! 54 books would overwhelm, but please me :-)

Leslie said...

That's a great picture. And possibly a record number of books in one day!

Margaret @ BooksPlease said...

Well done! I hope you enjoy them - and have space for them!! That would be a problem for me - our house is swamped with books :)

Cathy said...

Now that's my idea of heaven!

Kaye said...

Woooot!! Those book sales are so much fun but I blame them for the piles of books on the floor and the double stacking in the bookcases. Enjoy all your new books!!

Jill said...

I started avoiding book sales because I still have so many good books to read around. Hope you got some great deals and enjoy your new loot!

I love the smile on your face and the t-shirt! I hope you love every book you bought!

Paulita said...

You're right. Excellent reason to post late. Who cares about blogging when there are books to be read.

smellincoffee said...

Nice catch! Now the question -- where are you going to put all of them?!

Bev Hankins said...

@smellingcoffee: I'll just add them to the mountain of TBR books in the back room....

Great shot! Love how you're "showing" instead of just telling.

Enjoy!

And thanks for visiting my snapshot post.

Carol said...

Bliss. That smile on your face says it all. Is there anything nicer than contemplating a pile of books to be read?

Happiest photo I've seen yet!!

Bev Hankins said...

Jenners: I am one happy little bibliophile.

Louise said...

Oh Wow. I think my husband would die if I bought 54 books in one day! I'd have to hide them, and not be out and proud. Glad you can be. What a haul!
(BTW I think I fixed the problem with my photos the other day, and they should be visible, I hope they are)

Wow you're right that's a great reason to be late. 54 books!! That's amazing I think I would die and go to heaven to buy that many new to me books in on sitting.

54 books! I would be rolling around in them, I would be so happy.
