After a wonderful weekend with my partner, I’m surprised today doesn’t feel like more of a letdown than Mondays typically do. I’m not going to complain about the lack of the “case of the Mondays,” by any means, though!
Part of the weekend fun involved shopping at one of my favorite secondhand stores, Community Thrift on Valencia Street in San Francisco. Their book collection absolutely cannot be beat – it’s extremely well organized, well stocked, and absurdly priced. Most hardcovers are under two dollars, and paperbacks a dollar or less. We picked up a few household items, a couple of games, two records (I can’t resist musicals on vinyl!), and a handful of books (including a paperback copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which I’m in the middle of reading right now) for twenty-five bucks. We have the hardcover HP5, but I’d much rather carry around the smaller, lighter copy for bus rides and jury duty (yep, back again today).
How did you spend your weekend? Celebrate Easter, watch or listen to some baseball (go Sox!), score any new books?
