[BHE 173] Nonfiction Titles From the Wooster Friends of the Library Book Sale (Part 1 of 2)


Fats here.

Every Sunday, we share books that we have discovered through the library, online sources, and people’s recommendations. What I have with me today are juvenile nonfiction and picture book biographies that I bought from the semi-annual Book Sale sponsored by the Wooster Friends of the Library in our city. These books were actually purchased during the last day of the sale, so instead of the usual $0.50 per hardcover book, I was able to fill a bag for $5. It truly was a bargain!
