Can I ask y'all.... what is your rule of thumb with regard to buying books?
My mom is a huge book lover and owns many books, and my husband and I both love reading as well..... we have tons of books around the house (my husband even built a bookshelf above our closet doors to accommodate our burgeoning book collection—his ingenious design is pictured below—and we have another big bookcase in the living room).
So as I search for books for my sons, or find ones they like at the library, it is very tempting for me to buy them! (Especially when I can find a good price on eBay or Amazon.)
So I thought I'd poll my blogging pals—how do you decide, especially with kids books, what to buy and what to simply check out at the library?
