After checking out Cheap Stacks we headed home. So has gone by this day thus far. I am pretty tired presently. Carol left this afternoon to do some more errands. My wife is always on the go. She wears me out! I prefer a life of staying at home seeking the face of God. Well I will close to rest. Tomorrow is another Friday and I once again volunteer at our local library used books store The Book Nook. Carol works tomorrow night.

I did not list ALL the used books my wife bought today. She bought over 25 used books today, which is a record for her. She says she is buying used books to read when she is fully retired.
