Blue Monday & Bargain Book Bonanza #3: Mom Cave Books

Okay, friends, today I am combining Blue Monday with Bargain Book Bonanza and am re-working my Mom Cave post.  Mom Cave post?  Yes, back in October, I entered a contest about Mom Caves over at Between Naps on the Porch.  I didn't win, but you might enjoy reading about my entry when you get a chance.  You can find it by clicking here: The Queen of Small Spaces: Kathy's Mom Cave. (By the way, the Blue Monday and BBB links probably won't work until Monday ... I am posting this on Sunday.)

For Blue Monday, I am offering up the couch where I like to go to lay down and read.  It used to be my Grandma T.'s, and so is the quilt that used to be on her bed.  The lighting is awesome there, and I am surrounded by my favorite things.  It doesn't get much better than that! 

When you are all done here, please check out 
Smiling Sally's Blue Monday for lots of neat blue things of all variety!

For Bargain Book Bonanza, I wanted to show you the library in my Mom Cave.  Some of these books were bought at full price, but most are secondhand and were free or cheap.  I love them all, but I haven't read them all yet.

Some of the Children's Section:

Spiritual Books, Novels, History, Reference, and Photo Albums:

The Children's Section:

Decorating, Crafting, More Kid's Books and Paperbacks (they are now stored behind the wedding picture on top):

When you are through with me, please go over to visit Lesa and her friends at Baja Greewalt's Cozy Book Nook to learn about other folks bargain books by clicking here, when Monday comes.

If you miss a day, you miss a lot!  Don't miss out on the news ... Please click here to go to my home page and see what is happening in Mayberry today.

Loved your mom cave. Looks like a lovely place for you to read and relax. I loved all the little play centers. I could spend hours in there just looking around.

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Hi Donnie, thank you ... it is a relaxing little room to hang out in; I really enjoy it. Right now it is full of clean laundry!

You really have a great selection of books and see that you are quite fond of the printed page. I'll be the word Kindle drives you up a wall.

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Hi Patti ... I'm not against Kindle for anybody else, but I already am on the computer all day ... I love to hold a book in my hand when I am watching t.v. even when I'm not reading it.

Ms. Burrito said...

My Blue, hope to see you. Thank you!

SmilingSally said...

Ah, that's my kinda space. I love to read too, and I also prefer the feel of the real book in my hands.

Thanks for sharing your blues.

Happy Blue Monday, Kathy.

Lesa said...

What a comfy reading spot! And so many bargain books-- in every conceivable spot! Even propping up the tv-- love it!! Wish I could check them all out!

Thank you so much for linking up to BBB again!

Great reading spot. Especially when you have memories around you. Blessings, Debbie

LV said...

Nothing better than having your own space to do what you enjoy. I love it.

Thank you, everybody, now I am glad that I re-posted it. I figured that there were a lot of you that hadn't seen my Mom Cave yet.

Have a great week!
