Got three woodworking related books, in as new condition. American Folk toys, got some neat toys, some I mad when I was a kid, and some I've never ran across before. A Museum Of Early American Tools, by Eric Sloane. Very neat. There are tools I actually used when I was a kid, now they'd be called antiques, and probably be considered too valuable to use. Back then they were just old tools, that did the job. Then there are other tools I've seen, but ver used myself. And some I've never seen, or heard of. Very neat. I've got at least one other of his books. Then got a copy of Northwoods Furniture. Primarily got this one because it has plans for a very nice bent wood rocker. Got plans for a tree limb rocker too, but you'd never catch me making one of those.
The Northwoods Furniture book lists at $25. I paid a total of $17+ for these three, plus some 'reading' books. So, all in all, not too bad a day.
The best thing about a good used book store is you can find way out of print books, for very low prices. And they're usually a lot more interesting and informative then most of the new books out now.
