I *heart* Used Book Stores

Especially since I live 5 minutes away from an awesome one. I just took in two boxes of books for approximately $80 worth of credit. Now cumulatively I have about $100 there, which is good and bad. Good because now I have $100 credit; bad because it'll take me forever to spend it since I am much more discriminatory about buying books now. And typically for my must buy books, I end up buying at a store or on amazon.com anyway because I can't wait for it to start appearing at a used book store. Hmm. Problems. But still, this way, I got rid of some old books that I've outgrown and now have lots of credit.
The books they didn't take include some random authors that I don't even remember reading, some old Sandra Browns, Julie Garwoods, one Jude Deveraux, a couple of Teresa Medeiros, Karen Robards and a couple of Johanna Lindsays. Hmm. I wonder if these authors are in the remaining two boxes I have here. If so, that could be an issue. I think that store is definitely overstocked with Sandra Brown. I see a lot of her books there. Anyway, I have 2 more boxes left here. Maybe I'll keep it for now. Seriously, it'll take me years to spend that much $$ there! Good thing the credit never expires.
I didn't keep track of what the store did take so I can't miss it. I do miss it a little though. *sigh* I wish I had a huge house to keep everything.
