Boxes o' surprises

Over the summer, we gathered a lot of books for our school libraries (yes, now there are two!). One day this week, I'm gonna get to go through about a dozen boxes for the first time. I love this, as when you get donations, you really have no idea what will turn up. Besides the board books we'll re-donate, the books on parenting, the far-too-old Time-Life books, there are always remarkable gems and obscurities. We've been given first editions, children's readers from the 1800s, books by Cat Stevens and Fred Gwynne and Saul Bass, and more copies of The Giving Tree than anyone could possibly need.

What will this year's boxes reveal? I have no idea, but can't wait to find out!
