    Our public library has two carts they put in the lobby where you can pick up free books. These are books the library has taken out of circulation or books donated that they do not want. Usually I don't find anything I want but i did pick up a paperback copy of "To Kill a Mockingbird" and a few western novels.

    Much of the gardening section of my home library is stocked with freebies/cheapies I picked up at Library book sales
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I picked up a couple old furniture making books. They had funky stuff from the '70s that I should make someday.
