I love a good book and I’m always glad to add a few new titles to my personal library. This last week I saw a few people post on the great finds they got recently from book sales in their area and to be honest I was a tad bit jealous.

I haven’t been to a book sale in so long! I loved the book sales my college library had, down in the basement I’d come out with old textbooks and literature so proud of all my finds.

But on Tuesday, which is also library day in our family, I came across a book sale. Yeah for me! I picked up a few books. I could have gotten more. They were having a buy one, get one deal, but I had really planned on just returning books and heading on to more important things–like buying food for my family. But the books were calling…

Here’s what I got:

A Simple Heart, by Gustave Flaubert

Washington Square, by Henry James

The Name, by Michal Gorvin

We Were the Mulvaneys, by Joyce Carol Oates

Leota’s Garden, by Francine Rivers

Stop by the Revive Our Hearts store Thursday and Friday only for 40% off any book by author and radio speaker Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Nancy is the author of such books as Lies Women Believe and Seeking Him, as well as many more!

I started listening to her radio program, Revive Our Hearts, a few years ago and have been greatly blessed by her ministry. I’ve read (and own) Lies Women Believe, Biblical Portrait of Womanhood, and Biblical Womanhood in the Home (now titled Becoming God’s True Woman, which Nancy contributed and edited).

I’m thinking of getting a few of her booklets: Portrait of a Woman Used by God, Becoming a Woman of Discretion, and The Look. As for books, I’m considering Brokenness, Surrender, Holiness: A Revive Our Hearts Trilogy.

FYI: All sales are final for theĀ  2-day sale. No returns.
