Last night the Locavores had our monthly meeting at the local library, so I stopped by to check out the books before the meeting. The library always has a bin of books for sale, but I have never found so many ones I love at once! It turns out that these are all 'secondary copies'.
What's even more odd is that they are having a huge sale this weekend to sell off books they no longer use, so I would have expected these lovelies to be in that sale.

Abbey Lubbers, Banshees & Boggarts by Katharine Briggs
Katharine Mary Briggs has got to be one of my favourite authors when it comes to Faerylore.
The Enchanted World Fairies & Elves (Editors of Time-Life Books)
This is a neat little book with lots of great artwork.
A Medieval Book of Seasons by Marie Collins & Virginia Davis
This book is full well-researched information, beautiful artwork and plenty of songs and rhymes, such as the timely:

Lhude sing! cuccu.

Organic Farming: Everything You Need to Know by Peter V. Fossel
I have taken this book out from the library at least twice. It is a priceless resource for an aspiring organic farmer!

This is another book that I have taken out a number of times. It's a homesteader staple.
The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live it: The Complete Back-to-Basics Guide by John Seymour
Another book that I frequently took out, and just like the one above it is the perfect book for a homesteader (this one is more detailed though).
