If you had told me a few years ago that I could find great book deals at my local Goodwill store, I would have laughed (and honestly, probably rolled my eyes). But it’s so true! I have found some great, current, best-selling books just down the street and around the corner. How can people have given these treasures away?!
Here is the haul I came away with today:
