More Adventures at the Book Sale
This week’s book sale was the big one at the library. They have one in October and another in April.
The sale itself is located on a floor in the garage. It’s a permanent fixture in the garage, but closed off behind a gate except when there’s a sale. The sale was advertised as having 75,000 books!
- Close to Shore: A True Story of Terror in an Age of Innocence (it’s about shark attacks)

I had to be creative about where to look for these books. Military was where I found the spy books, though I don’t think they have anything to do with military. I found the California one in the science section. Plot showed up in the Performing Arts.
The one that caught my attention the most was the Law and Order book. It’s just got the first 10 seasons of the show. But in scanning through it, the book made me realize why I like the show. It’s a lot like Star Trek, and also The Orville It presents stories that don’t always have easy answers, and often have a lot of differing opinions. It’s entertaining and makes you think a little.
