These 2 pictures are samples that I have received recently. Not all were this week but I haven't taken pictures of them recently. The books in the top picture were found by my mom in a recycle bin. Can you believe people just throw out books like that. These will be posted on my PaperBackSwap bookshelf if you are interested in them. If you aren't a member of PBS, it is a great way to get books for free, and get rid of ones you don't want! If you sign up because you read this, please put my name in the referral line. Thanks!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, http://centimentalone.blogspot.com. Great job on all of your deals! Isn't it such a blast stretching our money so far? God does provide, but you're right, we definitely need to be good stewards of what He provides. :) God bless.
