Why did no one ever tell me that the Dollar Tree has books? Like, hardcover books? Bestselling books?
So last week or so, I went to the store to look for last-minute St. Patrick’s Day gear for my little one so he could wear to school. Unfortunately, everything on the rack was for Easter and whatever that was for St. Patrick’s Day were mostly tableware. So on my way back to the car, I noticed the Dollar Tree and thought I’d give it one last try. Who knows? Maybe I’d find a necklace or something.
And I did.
But as I wandered to the back part of the store, lo and behold, there were books! Lots of books! Actually just a shelf, but, hey, that’s a lot for me. One was even an autographed copy but I guess because the cover got folded in transit, it was relegated to the discount bin. As I struggled to balance six books in my arms along with green novelty leprechaun eyeglasses and two green necklaces, I wondered if the books were really only a dollar.
And they were, which makes this book-sniffing-and-running-her-fingers-along-the-pages book lover very happy.
Today, I managed to sneak back into the store and found five more books. This just might be the beginning of a very beautiful relationship… and I just might need a bigger bookshelf.
