Goodwill hunting

goodwill-booksSee that huge wall of books? It’s the fantastic selection of used books at the Goodwill Store on North Main Street in Blacksburg. It’s quite a hefty display of a wide variety of books. I don’t know if they’ve added new shelves, but there are definitely more books in this store than there used to be.

Of course.

Somewhere among those books was my library book I had mistakenly donated in a stack of other books earlier that day. I stood there staring at that epic wall of varicolored stories in dismay.

I didn’t discover my mistake until I went to return my library book. I searched my back seat in confusion, wondering where it was. Then it dawned on me that earlier that morning I’d been a little distracted when I donated the books, trying to multitask.

I finally found my library book on the last shelf I looked. My Goodwill hunting episode ended in double victory because I found it, and the girl at the register didn’t make me buy it from them.


On this day...

    Title of the book? And I’m glad it was the last place you looked. Funny thing, I’m always looking for something, and, when I find it, continue looking a few more places. Stating, “I found it in the third to last place I looked,” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. 😛
    Please forgive me, it’s been a long week.

    Only you! The librarian will probably be your BFF! We librarians love returned books which once were lost but now are found!

    So, I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award.
