Book Haul

This weekend was my library's February Used Book Sale and of course I was there waiting in line for the doors to open on Friday when it was Fill a Bag for $6.00  I don't even bother going the other days.  I just fill it up on Sunday's.  I got an obscene amount that I am psyched about.

For work..  I have a little guy who is obsessed with Indians.  Don't you dare say Native Americans because no, it is Indians and he is going to be one when he grows up.  My selection in the classroom is very limited so I found some at the library to pick up and put out.  Also, I have been looking for more books on the senses and books on emotions are always good.  The others are very short and could be beginning readers for some of my kiddos. 

I started with the adult books and my bag was bursting so I didn't really spend a lot of time in the children's area.

 Oh, No, Gotta Go is cute.  It is a hybrid Spanish/English and starts out with the family on a road trip and the little girl has to go to the bathroom.  The top is just a book I figured she should have some of the good ole classic tales and the bottom is a local history book.
I'm excited to get fly away by Kristin Hannah and I got Big Stone Gap because Nora's love for the author persuaded me to give one a try.  The Madonna's of Leningrad looks good too. 
I grabbed another Dorothea Benton Frank book.  Gotta get my South Carolina beach fix! I also sadly picked up a couple of Kellerman books that I had already picked up at the last sale, but I will just pass them along or turn them back to the library for the next sale!  I also got a copy of The Wednesday Sister's because I apparently lent it to someone and I can't remember who! I love that book and I needed it on my shelf! I'm pretty stoked about a lot of these!
Do you hit up your library's used book sale? Have you read any of these? Recommend any? Interested in any? Hated any? Spill!
