Bookstore Jackpot!

March 27, 2011

A few weeks ago I had a girls' night out with one of my friends. She took me to a place I had never been, nor had any clue was there. A place I like to call the bookstore jackpot! This place is a bookstore where EVERY book in it is only $1.00!! Hardcovers, paperbacks, children's books... All for only $1.00.

Granted, some of the books have been well "loved" by previous owners, but a lot were in pretty good condition. I've found gems like Gone With The Wind and Garden Spells. I've found books I loved, but lost when I loaned them to people- like Steve Berry books. And, of course, I've found books that sounded interesting.

How can a store sell books for only $1.00? I have no idea. I do know they are an off shoot of Crown books. I also know they have taken over half of an old grocery store location. It isn't much to look at from the inside-just wall to wall books. There are old check out stands that have a flat piece of cardboard and stacks of books for customers to peruse.

With any used bookstore, the selection is not always the greatest. Sometimes you find lots of great books, sometimes you don't. You aren't always guaranteed to find books you're hoping to find. The books range in condition. For the most part, new releases aren't there. However, it's great for older books you love and books you're willing to try since each is only going to be a dollar.

I, for one, plan to thoroughly "invest" money in the store's future. My husband, however, doesn't see it that way. Oh well. I figure over time, he will.:)

Oh wow, I wish there was such a bookstore in my city! I'd buy one book every day.:)

Yeah, I was excited. Hopefully it won't go anywhere.
