Last weekend, a friend of mine told me all about Goodwill. She talked about how cheap, and inexpensive you could buy a lot of great things for. Whenever I drove past a Goodwill I thought it was just like a yard sale place, where people sold old, dirty and kinda of gross things. Well yesterday I was totally proved wrong (I mean yeah Goodwill still had that weird musky smell to it, but then again the library does too). Rachael, huge Goodwill shopping fan, took me to three different local Goodwills. Even though I was interested and intending to buy something, it wasn't going to be clothing. After walking around for about ten minutes I noticed they sold BOOKS! At first I couldn't believe my eyes, BOOKS for only TWO dollars??? So of course I couldn't leave without seeing what they had. After leaving the last Goodwill we visited, I had a total of five books, that I will now share with you:D
The second book, is Dear John also by Nicholas Sparks.
""Dear John," the letter read. And with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives changed forever. When Savannah Lynn Curtis comes into his life, John Tyree knows he is ready to turn a new leaf. An angry rebel, he had enlisted in the army right after high school, not knowing what else to do, Then, during a furlough, he meets Savannah, the girl of his dreams. The attraction is mutual and quickly growing into a kind of love that leaves Savannah vowing to wait for John while he finishes his tour of duty. But neither can foresee that 9/11 is about to change the world. Like so many proud men and women, John must choose between love and country. Now, when he finally returns to North Carolina, John will discover how love can transform us in ways we never could have imagined."
And the third, The Kiss by Elda Minger.
"When she finds her fiance with another woman the night before her wedding. Tess Sommerville's safe, dull, by-the-numbers life is over. Packing up her broken heart--along with her dog--she impulsively joins her older brother's best friend in a two-thousand-mile road trip cross-country.

The fourth, Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen.
