One very, very full bag of books

A couple of years ago, I came home from the JCC used book sale with two bags full of books, for a total of 16 books.  This morning, I bought only one very, very full bag of books.  It held books for myself, for the Crown Center library, for a friend (one I already have, so we could study it together), and some workbooks and a package of vocabulary posters for my friend who teaches Hebrew.  Here are some of them.
