I have a confession to make….I am a bookaholic. Books are strewn through all the rooms in our home, on shelves, in boxes, on the floor, in e-book form on my iPad and Kindle…it’s an addiction that I hope from which to never be cured!
Because of the volume of verbiage in my humble abode, I don’t buy quite as many books as I once did, but this by no means has stopped the flow of new and used books from joining my personal depository.
One of my favorite places online to find a unique title is http://www.shopgoodwill.com/. This is Goodwill Industries‘ version of eBay. Goodwill stores from across the country put items of all description up for auction. I’ve bid on and won several treasures from their antique book section.
This is my latest find, The Congressional Club Cookbook
Even though I’m not the greatest cook in the world, I do enjoy finding unique and unusual cookbooks. I first saw The Congressional Club Cookbook when I was at The National Book Festival in Washington DC last year. The new copy is over $50 and that was just too pricey for me, besides it was a little too big to fit in my suitcase. So, when I saw this like-new 2005 edition on the Goodwill website I just had to bid on it. I was over the moon when I won it for just under $10!
It now has place of honor ~~ it’s on the top of a stack of really good, soon to be read finds!!
Ah, I just love my addiction!
