First off, we have this WONDERFUL book, that I LOVED as a child (and still do - truth be told):
This adorable piece of literature is about a postman who goes around delivering letters to various fairy tale characters. The best part is that, for each character, you actually get a little copy of the letter to pull out of the envelope and read! So, when I found it on the shelf for $.95 (yes, exactly - I would have paid $5.00 for it) I thought "Wow.... there's no way all the letters are actually in this for ninety-five cents." And they were!!!! And I got it for ninety-five cents!!! HOORAY! Someday, my kids will love this book. In the meantime, it will keep.
I also found this for FIVE cents,
this one for TEN cents,
these for FIFTEEN cents (each)
(note - I have read the first one, and I thought it was very entertaining as a small child. I have not read the 2nd one, but it's by Dick King-Smith, so I'm sure it's brilliant. For the uneducated, he's the man who wrote "Babe")
this for TWENTY cents (I also got the first one, but it was $1),
and these for TWENTY-FIVE cents.
Hint - check the "bargain books" youth section. It's right by the audio books when you go 'round the corner to enter the kid's section. There are a lot of worthless books to wade through, but I think it's worth it. I'm going to check this section every time now.
Some other notable mentions include
(this one was in the free pile)
Ok, I'm done. I got a lot of other books too, but these are the most exciting. My children's book collection just got better by leaps and bounds.
