Library book sale!

Took a little money and spent a little time at the Better Books Sale at our local library, and came home happy. I'm the new owner of:

- Angie Debo's Prairie City: The Story of an American Community
- Bill Bryson's Made in America: An Informal History of the English Language in the United States
- The Library of America's The American Revolution: Writings from the War of Independence
- Margaret Musgrove's The Student's Ovid, Selections from the Metamorphoses
- Churchill's The Birth of Britain (A History of the English Speaking People)
- Lial's Intermediate Algebra: with Early Functions and Graphing (2002)

All in excellent condition. The Library of America volume will go next to my two-volume LoA set of Lincoln's writings. Ovid will keep company with the study volume of The Aeneid. Churchill goes into the European history shelf (or two or however many). Lial's algebra needs a good looking through to see how it compares to what Son1 has studied this year, and then will head to either the reference shelf or the in-the-future shelf. Prairie City goes with western/Oklahoma books. Bryson's American English book might slide in next to the book on the origins of nursery rhymes.

It's so very, very nice to have added four bookcases recently.

I love our local library sale. I'm a little envious of your Churchhill find!

I came across your site while searching Google for blogs talking about growing/gardening equipment and related keywords and was wondering if you'd be open to doing a sponsored blog post.

We have a site that growing/gardening equipment and are looking for more exposure online.

Our budget for this is initially $20 for the post and we would give you the blog post (gardening related & already written) as well as a picture to post. All you would have to do is post it.

Here's a sample post we did on another blog:

We're really just testing out different bloggers, and if you bring some good traffic, we're totally open to doing an annual banner ad!

Also if you have some other blogs, please send them over and I'll take a look and we might be open to doing a post on those as well!

Let me know if you'd be open to this!
