Cost of sharing my musical taste with my daughter: Weekly stops to pore over the CD racks at Half Price books together, and maybe $100 in old CDs over 2 years.
Hearing her squee when Queen comes on the radio in the car, and then getting to head bang together at the appropriate time during Bohemian Rhapsody: PRICELESS.
She turned 12 last week.
She rode here in the front seat of my car, no longer relegated to the back seat.
And for the first time ever on visiting Half Price Books, she did not visit the children’s section.
Am I tearing up out of joy or sadness?
I love Half Price Books! I just bought the kid 9 paperback classics… All Caldecott and Newberry award winners… And a tote bag… For $8.00. Most important to me is that those books won’t end up in dumpsters. Another mind is opened, or three, and then we’ll pass them on.
