A peaceful day

For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light shall we see light. Psalm 36:9

Rejoice with me

Posted by Jeanne

So I was in a second hand book shop on the weekend. (No surprise there, right?) I'd been there a while, and I'd found some real treasures. Reasonably priced treasures too. Wanna know what I'd ferreted out?

Anyhow, I happily paid for my stash, and I was on my way out the door, when suddenly I spied...these:

They were sitting in a pile just to the left of the door saying, "Buy me! Buy me!"

They were, too!! I could hear them. Honest, I could! I think they even said my name. "Hey, Jeanne! Over here!" In fact, I'm sure they did.

Anyhow, I did.

I marched back to the checkout counter and I bought them all. A whole pile of ten books from Opal Wheeler and Sybil Deucher's Great Musicians Series.

Fifty bucks the set.

I'm so excited. Rejoice with me?!

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah! Wahoo, whoop, whoop!!!
I'd be rejoicing if I found those books too Jeanne! I loooove secondhand bookstores. Have a great weekend :-)

I love second-hand book shops so can relate to this buy. I haven't heard of Robin by Mary Grant Bruce.

Erin said...

You're joking!! My mouth has hit the floor, really?!!! Fantastic, ten OW for $50!!! Incredibly wonderful!!
and I don;t have that MGB title either, haven't even heard of it. Niall's book sounds intriguing too. so very, very thrilled for you, nearly as good as finding them myself.
I once found a copy of John at Syndey cove by Doris Chadwick for 10cents!!! that was a fortuitous day:):)

My "John" was $8.00. I exclaimed out loud when I found it and everyone looked at me. I was so excited. 10c...oh my!!

I have Robin ~ found in a 2nd hand shop too~ & am hugely envious of the music score! lol Pun intended. ☺

Er.. Jeanne, did you delete my book tragic comment?
(Perhaps I failed to post it....shrug)

Jeanne said...

Why, Brandon...was it rude? :)

Very, very jealous of the Musician series! I think they may be back in print, but I'd rather have the old ones!

Jeanne.... THANKS for the geography tip. Sometimes the most obvious things escape us, and we need friends to brilliantly point them to us!

This reminded me of Sherlock Holmes when he explained how he came to a conclusion one of his clients said, oh, that was easy, and he thought, funny that!, once explained everybody thinks they can come up with it, next time I'll keep it to myself. And this always reminds me of Einstein's quote, creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

And I'm rejoicing with you...WONDERFUL FINDING! I hope to hear from the musicians series!

Rejoicing in your new friends!
What a satisfying trip you had.

Woo hoo! That's so fun! I bought a set of Creative Hands books once at the thrift store all about knitting, crochet, tatting, and the like.

I love your blog, and I have been reading for a while.

I wondered how Jemimah's spelling is coming along? We found ourselves in the same boat as far as spelling -- (atroshus!). Any hints, tips, ideas appreciated!

Rejoicing with you, Jeanne, and especially envious of the composer books! They look wonderful. xo

Sarah said...

How wonderful for you to score those awesome 'great musicians' books! :-)

Chef Penny said...

SO jealous! How I wish you lived closer so I could jaunt over and "borrow" them! LOL

Great day at the book store!

Mrs Adept said...

Mama Squirrel said...

Charlotte Mason in the City said...

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
