Good Times at Goodwill

You all know I love Goodwill- great for craft projects, kitschy gifts, home decorating... the possibilities are endless. One of my favorite things to do while I am in there is to go through the books. You would not believe what you will find for books, things you would certainly never see in Barnes and Noble or Borders! But, aside from the great variety, I also love to open books up and look at inscriptions. When you give a book as a gift, it is typically to someone of a close personal relationship. The book inscriptions are usually very telling and give a voyeuristic view into a strangers life.

I found a couple that made me laugh this week:

Ahhh, the stereotypical LOVE book, typically given with the first giddy year...
(For Christina, If this is for Valentines Day- then I declare today and everyday Valentines Day! Love you- L)

Well, Christina, since this book is sitting on the Goodwill bookshelf, we all know Valentines Day is not every day, don't we?

I really found the next book and inscription interesting: This is totally a gift my dad would give me.
