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.

Ever been to Hay-on-Wye in the United Kingdom or any book village in Europe? It's a whole village full of second hand bookshops. In Hay-on-Wye there're normally over 25 shops in village with only a few hundred houses!

No but it sounds fabulous. I would love to see a book village some day.

well put. I am always needing more books...despite the many piled up around me-and simply couldn't imagne paying full retail for 'em.
