Good Book Hunting, April 28, 2018: The Friends of the Springfield-Greene County Library Book Sale

Well, I did it again. I returned to the Friends of the Springfield-Greene County semi-annual book sale on Half Price Day and went through the better books section seeking more bargain-like books.

And, honestly, I mostly looked for audio courses like those produced by The Teaching Company. And boy howdy did I find them. In the past, they’ve been priced at twenty or thirty dollars, and I could get them for half that. But this time, they were originally marked ten bucks, so I got them for five dollars each.

Here are the stacks:

The Teaching Company courses include:

  • Psychology of Human Behavior
  • The Lives of Great Christians
  • Algebra I
  • Luther: Gospel, Law, and Reformation
  • Geometry (by James Noggle)
  • A Day’s Read

Books include:

  • Milton’s Minor Poems
  • The Murder of Lidice by Edna St. Vincent Millay
  • Brush Up On Your Classics by Michael Macrone
  • The Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and illustrated by Frederic Remington
  • The Literature Lover’s Book of Lists by Judie H. Strouf
  • Under the Sunday Tree Paintings by Mr. Amos Ferguson/Poems by Eloise Greenfield
  • Guitar 2, a book about guitar techniques and whatnot
  • Miles Davis: Sketch Orks, a music book for trumpet for my youngest or my beautiful wife, both of whom play trumpet

Records include:

  • Black Satin by the George Shearing Quintet and Orchestra
  • The Chick Correa Elektric Band
  • Handel Sonatas for Recorder, Op.1
  • Time Further Out The Dave Brubeck Quartet
  • Boots Randolph Plays 12 Monstrous Hits

The records were cheap, too (a buck or two each after the price was halved). Overall, the prices were more affordable than I remember. Which is good.

The pickings were less books than things to listen to, but that’s alright. I have plenty to read until the next sales.
