The path, book browsing and new home

- The path before us was so lovely on Saturday morning at Lilburn Greenway Park that I had to stop and snap this photo with my phone.  Friend Laura doesn't know I have a blog, but doesn't ever seem to mind my serendipitous ways of stopping at random moments like this during our walk.  There had been a spring rainstorm the night before that made the morning sparkle.  If you click to enlarge, you can see the sun's rays flowing down through the trees.

- Saturday was full of local activity - here, a book sale at Tucker Reid H. Cofer Library.  I came by to pick up an audio book to listen to during my commute and was drawn into book browsing.  I put the audio book down to snap this photo and accidentally left it there.  A very nice librarian left a very nice message at home that it was (again) waiting for me at the circulation desk. 

- I got these two Anne Rivers Siddons books for a total of $4.  I have always meant to read these two books, both set in the city of Atlanta.  Ms. Siddons was born in nearby Fairburn, Georgia, and is a beloved southern writer.

- And both books were signed "For Connie - Warmest wishes - Anne Rivers Siddons".  A little sad to me that Connie has given up (or had to give up) her signed books, but they have another good home now.

I love Anne Rivers Siddons books. She is awesome. Why is it that we don't tell our friends about our blogs? I tell them everything, then write about it on my blog. But my blog is my best-kept secret.

Lynn,

I like that path.

The last photo you have (on this post) is perfectly composed. :-) That, to me, is 'heaven.' :-)

Our library has two big semi-annual book sales and they raise quite a bit of money to supplement their budget. Personally, I'm more into stocking up on c.d.'s than books, but I did find a Sherlock Holmes book by Laurie King several years ago that got me hooked.

I agree with Debra you do take nice photos, even if it means you leave stuff behind because you got side tracked with the camera! Enjoy reading your books!

Don't feel bad. Connie could have kicked the bucket! ;)

Book sales are one of my favorite shopping excursions and theFriends group of our local library hosted a very large one in early March. We helped out a lot during the 3 days, but I only bought a few books to send to friends. Glad your untie book was found and returned.

Awesome ray shot! - I was here earlier n ran out of time to comment at the library. Nice of them to call about the audiobook.

Ooh, I LOVE a good used book sale. Especially when there are bargain hardcover books. I haven't book shopped very much this winter, by my standards... I think it's time to go browsing soon!
