used books haul or the road to serfdom

It is 4:33 PM Wednesday afternoon here in West Michigan. Today has been a day of buying used books. I got up this morning around 8 o'clock AM. I got up ate breakfast and then we had devotions/prayed. After we prayed I had to do an errand and on the way home I stopped at a local Goodwill to look at their used books and bought these used books-

When I got home from my errand and visiting Goodwill Carol wanted to drive to Grand Haven to drop off cookies at a elderly widower from her church who is now 94 years and is too weak to leave his condo/come to church. Carol sat next to this old Christian gentleman for years and wanted to bring him some her fresh baked cookies to tell him she is thinking praying for him/the fellow's grandson lives with him to make sure he is OK. So Carol and I drove to Grand Haven, which is not far from Holland/Grand Haven is North of us and it was a nice drive sunny sky filled with big puffy clouds. Carol and I drove to her elderly friend's place in a large area of very nice expensive condos way out in nowhere/she went inside the condo and I sat in the car reading from a book titled, 'A Stranger In This World: Stories' by Kevin Canty. Carol soon came to our car and we drove over to Grand Haven Public Library/Loutit Library to check out their used books store Cheap Stacks (we visit Cheap Stacks at least once a year to search for used books/fifty cents for hardbacks and twenty-five cents for paperbacks/we usually buy A LOT OF USED BOOKS at Cheap Stacks!) I will now list the used books I bought today at Cheap Stacks Library Used Books Store-
