Just popped along to our local library to get some books out, and they had a hug tub of books for sale at the very expensive at 5p each.

So have come back with loads, had to buy another Jute Bag to carry them all.

Our local book shop was closing down a few weeks ago, I picked a few bargains as all books were 50% - 70% off.

I get some from our library quite regularly. I got a load of multicultural and special needs ones last year - right before my Ofsted inspection:D

The only thing I make sure I do with them is remove the plastic sleeve - otherwise when it comes to taking library books back, I end up pulling these ones out and taking twice as long to find the actual books that need returning!!:laughing:
