I had some time to waste this past Saturday, and ended up in a thrift shop. When I am thrift shopping, I usually hit the book section first, and Saturday's trip was no exception.
But first a little something about the store I was at. It is called the New Destinations Thrift Store, located in the College Hills shopping center in Wooster, Ohio. Most of the help there is volunteer, and the shop is run by a ministry that helps those in treatment centers among other things. I have bought several books from the original New Destination shop in Barberton. Click here for information about the New Destiny Treatment center.
This trip I found two books that I thought was an exceptional value at $1.00 apiece. First one is called "I Dare You," written over 60 years ago by William H. Danforth, founder of Ralston Purina. The others is much more recent, "Tuesdays With Morrie" by Mitch Albom. Albom is a Detroit sports writer, and has an afternoon talk show on WJR/760 in Detroit.
I am currently reading "I Dare You," and will shortly give a report on this space. I think I will listen to WJR on the way home as I hear Mitch Albom is a good talk show host and the station blasts into this area. It uses Lake Erie as a giant antenna.
