Goodies from the library

Many libraries take books, cd's and other items out of their collection at the end of the year.

Here, the library sells them for 1 or 2 euros, regardless of their condition.

That means I sometimes can buy the best and most expensive books for almost nothing.

They're wrapped in plastic and have a stamp of the library on it, and sometimes a magnetic strip, but when you're someone who loves to read that doesn't matter.

Because they're not suitable for birthday gifts those books are a present for myself.

Last year I've found someone with the same addiction, and we decided to exchange our bought library books.
Already we're in a circle of 7, and we enjoy each other's choices.

Beware of CD's and tapes and such.
They can be damaged and you can't see that from the outside.

But books: books are great!
