On Saturday, local bloggers Cindy, Tina and Donna (Avis was absent with regrets) attended an annual library book sale. Cindy remarked grimly that, “There are fewer books this year”, while another patron was overheard to say that the library has been selling their donated books right off the back of a trolley during the past year, leaving their annual sale a bit book-light. The bloggers however didn’t allow a disappointing book sale to dissuade them and they continued with their meet-up by heading to a quaint coffee shop in the nearby village. But before they got inside, the bloggers stumbled across a real find – a garage sale with all proceeds going to Rosie Animal Adoption. “Archies!” one blogger shouted, which startled several passersby and elicited a “Gesundheit” from an elderly woman. Reports from eyewitnesses stated that Cindy offered to drive Tina and her outsized box of Archie comic books home.
Apparently Cindy and Donna didn’t fare as well though they were still pleased with their acquisitions. “I got an almost new copy of Twilight,” Cindy smiled. Donna managed to buy six larg-ish books from the garage sale and 4 hefty tomes from the library sale and, after receiving a lift home from Cindy, staggered into her house with the goods.“I don’t know why I bought this one,” she admitted, “I already have three copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”.
This reporter has recommended that she seek help and gave her the number of ‘Collectors Anonymous’.
