I bought some books, but this doesn’t break my ban. I knew about this before I started banning myself.

I went to my town’s biannual library sale and got all of these books for $16!!! I might even go back before it’s over and add some more to this list, but as of this moment, this is all.
Right now, most of these have that nasty library plastic on them. ICK! I plan on cutting it off since it’s not the kind that is permanently glued to the cover. I’ve done this before and it was really easy to get off, minus one little spot on the inside covers where the plastic has been glued to the endpapers. I might make a post about this, just because it was so ingenious that I made my books go from nasty library-esque to pretty newness with only a few snips of my scissors.
All in all, it was a good haul. I was getting worried when I first started shopping, just because I couldn’t find books without the plastic, but once I remembered I could cut it off, I went a little nuts.
Oh, and the writing books are for my profession, not for fun. They were just cheap.
What books have you bought/received lately?
