It appears that somebody dumped a load of books on the Rt70-near-Brier-Creek Durham Rescue Thrift Store, and rather than deal with them, the staff just dumped them into the free bins.

It's a selection way above the usual fare. I took home A Confederacy of Dunces, The Alchemist (I think that this is a new Bridges of Madison County but a kid told me to give it a try), The Book of Saints, Dalva (enthusiastically reviewed), Big Money (PG Wodehouse) Running With Scissors, Unforgettable Fire, a sight-singing text and a cute elementary Spanish text.

Probably the pile will be picked out before you get there but if you like to go there anyway, this is a good time. Maybe a lot of this bunch made it onto the shelves inside, too...

At least they have free bins and don't just toss the stuff they can't shelve-like Goodwill does!
Wish I could get out there today
