Blueberry Festival Used Books Sale

It is 7:08 PM Friday night here in west Michigan. It has been a super long day for me! I am at the end of my rope. I am extremely tired and do not have the presence of mind to write down my existence right now. All I am going to attempt to do is list the used books we bought today at a used books sale in South Haven. I am writing on my lap top so I might fail in my attempt to list all the used books bought today to go into our book collection, but here it goes-

We left for the used books sale around 8 o'clock AM. I got into the sale around 9 o'clock AM. We were headed back to Holland by 10:10 AM. When we got home I found this book on our porch that I had ordered from Amazon 'Christobiography: Memory, History, and the Reliability of the Gospels' by Craig S. Keener.

I left the house around 12:45 PM to volunteer at the Book Nook from 1 o'clock PM till 5 o'clock PM. Usually I volunteer at the Book Nook from 10 o'clock AM till 1 o'clock PM but today Stacy covered my shift and then I covered her shift from 1 o'clock PM till 5 o'clock PM. I brought home from the Book Nook these used books to ADD to our small town book collection-
'A Marginal Jew: Companions And Competitors' Volume 3 in the series Rethinking The Historical Jesus by John P. Meier
'Garrets and Pretenders: A History of Bohemianism in America' by Albert Parry
'Churchill & Orwell: The Fight For Freedom' by Thomas E. Ricks

When I got home from the Book Nook around 5:10 PM in the mail I had received a book I had ordered on sale titled, 'The Resurrection Of The Son Of God' by N. T. Wright.

This evening Carol is babysitting Cora and Josie. I am babysitting their dog Ollie till Caleb and Emily get home from their evening out for dinner and a movie.

Well I will close to have a cup of coffee. Tomorrow is a Saturday in the death flow.
