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
- 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
- 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.
