I did something I will never do again. I went to a store on Black Friday. Oh brother, I could not believe how crowded the place was! I got to Half Price fifteen minutes after they opened and there were wall to wall people. I did find a couple of nice items, but it was not worth the rush or the crowd. I added to my collection: A Charmed Death (A Bewitching Mystery, #2) by Madelyn Alt The UFO Phenomenon (Mysteries of the Unknown) by Time-Life Books Transformations (Mysteries of the Unknown) by Time-Life Books Secrets of the Alchemists (Mysteries of the Unknown) by George Constable
