They Can Be Like Digging Up A Treasure Chest.
Sometimes they are more intresting than the regular book stores. There are books there you would never have found in a regular book store. I love looking in the piles of childrens books and picking fun neat books for the kids. Seeing a special book I had forgotten out of the corner of my eye from childhood is like hitting the lottery. And the really neat part is they are usually 1/3 of the price of a new book! I love a bargain. And as for me I can buy 5 books rather than one new book at the store and not feel guilty. Plus the looking itself is fun. Like an adventure.
