Thrift Store Book Haul #12


One thing I’m thankful for is finding books on a budget. Luckily, I have a good amount of thrift stores in my area that always stock great books to add to my library! Here are some of my most recent finds:

  • The Very Lonely Firefly by Eric Carle


  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle


  • Today is Monday by Eric Carle

Today Is Monday

I love Eric Carle books, so I was excited to find three of his books to add to my classroom library! Even though I think that I already own Today is Monday, it doesn’t hurt to have multiple copies of popular authors in my classroom.

  • The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn

The Kissing Hand

  • Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type by Doreen Cronin

Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type

The Kissing Hand and Click, Clack, Moo are both popular picture books that I have never read! Due to their popularity, I think these will be great books that I can add to my classroom library that I will enjoy as well.

I absolutely love finding stuffed animal versions of my favorite literary characters. I know that I can use these are reading buddies or other motivators during reading instruction. I can’t wait to see how my future students will react to these popular book characters in the classroom!

  • Stink the Incredible Shrinking Kid by Megan McDonald 

Stink: The Incredible Shrinking Kid (Stink, #1)

  • Stink and the Incredible Super-Galactic Jawbreaker by Megan McDonald

Stink and the Incredible Super-Galactic Jawbreaker (Stink, #2)

  • Stink: Solar System Superhero by Megan McDonald

Stink: Solar System Superhero (Stink, #5)

  • Stink and the Midnight Zombie Walk by Megan McDonald

Stink and the Midnight Zombie Walk (Stink, #7)

I read the first book in this Judy Moody spin-off series last year (see my review here). However, I know a lot of students will enjoy this series just as much as the Judy Moody series. Hopefully, I enjoy the later books in this series more than the first!

  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)

The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite series. However, I read all of the books through my local library, so I can’t just pick one of the shelf and reread it. However, I found the first and second book in this series at Half Price Books. I love this series so much, so it makes my happy to have these two books in my collection.


What book deals have you scored recently?

  1. You are very lucky that you have thrift stores that sell some awesome books, mine don’t carry books. I get good deals on books when the local libraries have their book sales every few months
