Super gigantic book sale

I dug deep into what tiny bit of energy I’ve been able to hang onto and made it to the Half Price Books giant clearance sale at the state fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday this past week. Callum and I were off work/school on Friday and Matthew took the morning off. Nerds like to be first at book clearance sales. We weren’t first. Not even close (though in the first 200, as we got free tote bags!). Friday was more chill there—busy, but not jammed. We were there for two hours. I was hunting down specific books for work and also just content to rifle through tons and tons of books rather aimlessly. When we went back Saturday, it was MUCH busier. People were taking it upon themselves to pull unopened boxes down from the stacks along the walls and start sifting through them. I used Saturday’s return visit to get some childhood favorites for some flashback reviews. Though I paid for it by being desperately exhausted after we left, we had a blast. Here are some pics from our visits!
