Book Lovers’ Ultimate Temptation

Leave a comment

Have to admit, I spent most of the day at Hockessin Library buying far too many books. The Friends of the Hockessin Library host one of the largest book sales in the region. Even though I was there for about five hours today, I may go back tomorrow. As I was leaving at 4:00 p.m., volunteers were bringing even MORE books in to fill the tables. AND I will be returning on Sunday, when all of the remainders will be drastically reduced.
