Saturday Photo Hunters---- Books
This week the theme for Photo Hunters is Books. Now I could have chosen to discuss my love of reading. I might have provided a list of my all time favorite authors. I could have just shown you the inside of our public library. Instead, I decided to share with you one of the adventures we had during our recent vacation.
One of my sisters lives in Omaha which is the headquarters of Scholastic Books. Any parent certainly is familiar with the many programs Scholastic Books offer. Everything from reading awards, book clubs and school book fairs. This year our visit happened to coincide with Scholastic Books annual end of the school year book sale to clear out their warehouses of damaged or discontinued products. My sister works for Scholastic Books and gets a generous discount on the items they sell. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon browsing among the many books offered and came home with a box full of bargains.
The above photo is what remains of the box of books that the Old Salt and I purchased during our trip. June is a big month for birthdays in our family so I had already packed and mailed three boxes of books to our grandchildren celebrating birthdays before taking this picture. The remaining books are earmarked for special occasions through the end of the year.
