Penguin-Putnam Warehouse Sale!

Last week Joe & I went to the Penguin Putnam Warehouse Sale... lucky for us it is only 10 minutes away!  I've gone every year since college when I was student teaching so I could begin building my classroom library.  This year was the first year I bought books both for my class and for myself.  My classroom library is pretty robust after a few years as a Scholastic BookClub member & yearly visits to this book sale.
I also was on a tight budget this year (unfortunately, new tires beat out books) so I tried to get the biggest bang for my buck by purchasing a few for me, a few for my class and a few as gifts for my nephews & niece.  This year I got $310 worth of books for $45!!  Woohoo! 

Here is a peek at my loot:

Books for me:
Flower Children, Voluntary Madness, Candy Girl, Three Cups of Tea (young reader edition), When Rabbit Howls, Delicious, Wintergirls

Books for family:
2 Mad Art Draw-on/Wipe-off Holiday Books, Jan Brett Little Library, Mr. Birthday, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
