Last weekend my husband took an extra day off work and one of the things we did was go to Value Village. I get a lot of good books there at great prices. It's really amazing what huge variety my store has. It would be nice to buy all my books new but I know that's not realistic and since we plan on actually using these and not just putting them on display what wear and tear they have at the moment doesn't bother me at all.
These are the things we picked up. The cookbooks were about $4 each and everything else came up under $20. An amazing deal considering there are more than 20 books here!

My husband found the complete set of "Can't Cook" books - The Guy Can't Cook and The Girl Can't Cook. He also found the Greek cookbook which I'm super excited about. We've already made a recipe from each of the "Can't Cook" books and both were awesome!
While there I also let my daughter pick out a couple books all by herself (with no help or prodding from me) and was surprised to find her choices were completely her. A Thomas the Engine book, a Bob the Builder book, and a great big colourful Little Mermaid (she's never seen that movie but she does like vibrant colours and there are lots of sea animals to look at).
We had a fun time picking these out and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens over the next year!
