Stacks of books. Stacks and stacks of them.

Two weekends ago, I went with my mother-in-law to this awesome estate sale where I got pie plates (that looked like ones my great-grandmother had), funky looking drinking glasses, this awesome whale poster, and a pasta bowl.

The awesome thing is, I paid only $2 for the lot of them! I’ve got this thing for childrens books right now. I’m assuming it’s a passing phase, but I kinda hope it’s not.

If you live in a box and never venture out, then you probably don’t know that Borders is closing. But they are. All of them.

I’ve been collecting things for my new classroom. See, I work at a language school, and since all the books are in English, I’m trying to accumulate some of my own. I love kids books. And since Borders was closing it made all the nice, new ones, affordable. So that, plus my Wal-Mart trip puts my total lot at this:
