Today I went shopping. Not for books for clothes. My rule is, if I buy new clothes I have to get rid of old clothes. So I went through my closet, took out a few old things and took them to Goodwill. I decided to check out the book section. It was rather large about 6 bookshelves worth, although a little messy.
While I didn’t look at every book there, I did walk down slowly and gave a careful look over what was there. I picked out two books and went to pay for them. However, I had stumbled into their Wednesday Manager’s special, which was 4 books for $1. So I went back to take another look. I hadn’t seen any books that were true crime except for one about the mafia, it was about the same boss in a book I already have. Since I am not that interested in organized crime I didn’t get it. Instead I got a biography that had only mildly interested me but for 25¢ I picked it up, and a book about how bad cosmetics are for your skin. Not a bad haul.
Then I found a bar that has Brooklyn Lager on tap for $4. I may have hit happy hour though.
