52 fridays | week 5 | on the shelf

I came thisclose to posting a photo of what the shelves in our new apartment actually look like, but it just so happens my husband stacked Avery's books neatly last night so this picture won out.  Mostly because over four years later, I'm still super excited about the steal I got on all of those Joy Berry books.  

Several years ago, before we were even planning a family, I scored these books at a garage sale for around $5.  Considering that's about what one book goes for, I think I got a pretty sweet deal.  And sure, they'd been sitting in the trunk of my old car and then the garage until...oh, about two months ago - BUT now they are sitting on the shelf, being read and teaching life lessons.  Hello WHINING, I'm looking at you!  

I really love these books but if you don't feel like buying all of them, they are sure to be found at the local library!
