On Saturday a friend and I decided to brave the cold, the on-and-off freezing rain, and the tall-as-us snow banks and walked to the newly opened Savers, also known as Value Village. It’s located right behind our university’s field house and soccer/football fields, and we figured we could cut through the field house. Surprise, the field house is closed on Saturdays and Sundays during the winter. We had to back track a little bit and alternate between walking in the road and on the semi-plowed sidewalks. I punched through the snow a couple of times, but the books I brought home were completely worth it.
The book selection at this particular Savers isn’t nearly as extensive as the other Savers my friend and I used to frequent, but I was able to pick up two books that my library at home does not have. While the other three are available at the library at home, I just could not pass them up as I love Bohjalian, have wanted to read Hillary Clinton’s autobiography for a while, and have heard great things about Middlesex. I spent a total of $8 for five books.
