Or thrift store, or whatever you call them in America, LOL! An armful of classics for $3! Now, to show off the spoils:

All that for $3 dolars!!!!!! * shock, horror, gasp* I am sooooooo envious.
But, maybe you knew that. Good finds, all of them.

You have to tell addicted op-shop addict I am, which shop did you score this wonderful bargain from?

Erin - Lifeline. :-) They've always got so many books - I think they're my favourite op-shopping destination for books!

Those Bronte books are just beautiful! Why don't they bind books in silk anymore? :( What an amazing bargain!! I know how it feels to find books like that for such a low price. It's like treasure seeking!

Three dollars?

I've been considering used-book shopping lately...this encourages me. :)
