Free Books (UPDATED: Now with allowed rather than aloud!!)

Saturday, June 14, 2008

During the big party downtown in Prince Albert today, Lauralea and I wandered past the Library display where they were selling old books. Seems we hit it with perfect timing. It was near the end of the day and they really didn't wish to haul all the books back to the Library, so they started giving people bags and telling them to take the books away free - no casual browsing allowed, you had to just take them home and read them there!


Lauralea's eyes got bigger than her whole head and she went to town. I became her bag holder.

And I found a delightful book; Immortal poetry of the English language.

So yeah, I brought home one book, and Lauralea brought home about 10,000 books.

Lauralea shouldn't be allowed within ten feed of any sign with those two words in it. There otta be a law.


  1. Sheesh, I'm glad my wife wasn't there, there'd either be a pastor wives' brawl, or no book for anyone else.

  2. Chris wondered what book that was so I clicked the link to enlarge it.

    "Oh, that one" said she.

    So while she was reading I scanned down the page too. At first pass I read "I love thee with the passion put to use in my old briefs". Quick double take - ah, griefs. How much more likely, yet somehow so much less entertaining.


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
