Humane Society Thrift Store Used Books Haul

In this video I sought to show how many books one could buy for $25.00 dollars used at thrift stores or used books sales. Why go to Barnes & Nobles and spend $40.00 dollars for two books when could buy seventeen books for $25.00 dollars used?

It is 9:58 AM Monday morning in the flow of Life in a fallen world. Outside this morning it is cloudy and not as cold has it has been for awhile.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I ate some food and then wrote in my paper diary. I then read from a book titled, "Canonical Theology: The Biblical Canon, Sola Scriptura, and Theological Method" by John C. Peckham Foreword by Craig G. Bartholomew. Carol got home from work around 8:35 AM and has gone to bed for the day. I have nothing to do today, but wait for tomorrow to come knocking on our front door. I might leave my cell this morning to visit local thrift stores in search of used books to add to our library.

Last night I made another video for my BookTube channel and read from these two books-

"Robert Lowell Setting The River On Fire: A Study of Genius, Mania, And Character" by Kay Redfield Jamison

"The Letters Of Robert Lowell" Edited By Saskia Hamilton

I went to bed early last night due to being in a state of exhaustion. Now it is the first day of Spring 2017. History of mankind keeps zooming toward the Last Day.

Well there is not much else to report so I will close to face it.

"[26] Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
[27] Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
[28] Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
[29] He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
[30] Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
[31] But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:26-31
