We just got back from our favorite used bookstore in Raleigh, where we picked up children's books a-plenty: several books by Roger Lancelyn Green, a beautiful book on the history of the Statue of Liberty, two books on Troy, one lovely illustrated hardcover on King Arthur, one on Greek heroes, and one on fractions. The kids also picked up some personal reading...a few Goosebumps, Gregor the Overlander, Little House books, and a cute polar bear story for Annie. (And a book on Spacemen 3 for me, because I refuse to grow up.) All totalled up, we spent slightly less than $30. That makes today a good day, in spite of having to barefoot-chase our escaped dogs all over the neighborhood, having guests show up unexpectedly, and being kind of sleepy. Yes, indeed, that definitely made up for it.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go stand over a vent and cool off.
