Thrift Store Books

Look at our blessings this week!  I took a little one with me to help find some fun books and the other's were at home checking to see if we had certain books.  Goodness knows I can't remember all the books in the collections we have. :)

For me:
Quick & Thrifty Cooking
Busy Woman’s Cookbook
Household Survival Manual

We enjoy collecting the Great Illustrated classic books for the young readers. Brand new they are $10 a piece. We found three new books for our collection at 99 cents each:

Sleeping Beauty and other stories
Black Beauty
Little Women

Classic Mystery Books for kids:

Spies of the Revolution by Katherine and John Bakeless
The Mystery of the Pilgrim Trading Post (An old Weekly Reader book)

We collect Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy books. We found two Hardy Boy books:
