The library has a used book store to help raise proceeds. People voluntarily drop off their used books. The room in the lobby area sells them for $5 to 50 cents. They have some on sale on a cart for 10 cents. I am looking at the 10 cents cart.

A woman comes up and says “Wow, a book for 10 cents! How can they afford to sell them so cheap?”

I said, “They are donated books, so the library got them for free, and anything they get is a profit.”

The woman says, “No they aren’t free, they are 10 cents.”

I said, “The library didn’t pay for them, they were free, and they sell it for 10 cents.”

The woman points to the sign. “No, the books are 10 cents.”
