Today's case in point is about my friend Sara. Sara works at our wonderful library and she has a job many bibliophiles would love - she works at the Book Cellar, the used book store on the lower level. This book store sells not only the discarded library books, but others' donations as well. I myself have donated to this store many times.
Sara looks out for me! Any time she sees a vintage book that she thinks I might like, she messages me on Facebook. And 100% of the time, she's hit the nail on the head! But last Monday.....
Last Monday she let me know that a complete set of the Golden Encyclopediae and Dictionaries had come in. That's a whopping 16 encyclopedic volumes and six dictionaries!
WHOA. This was MAJOR. I had been trying to gather as many Golden volumes as I could up until this point and managed one dictionary and four encyclopediae. To have the complete set is a coup and a half!
The best part? The whole box only set me back 10 bucks. :)
I have already declared my love for the Golden Guide series here, and now my collection is complete. Just look at some of the wonderful covers - this set is from 1959!
I have created countless collages, big and small, with the items contained within these pages. Here are just a few:

Thank you SO much, Sara, for looking out for me! You not only made me positively giddy, but you're a fantastic salesperson to boot! :D
