It's Greek to me.

I stopped by the thrift store in Blacksburg last week while I was visiting my parents. Blogland has been filled with people using pages from French books. I figured a college town would be a good place to find one of those.

Would you believe the day I was there the books were 70% off? I couldn't believe my good luck.  As you can see, I bought 4 books. Yes, one of them is indeed in French.

But that's not the one I want to show you today.

This one caught my eye first as I couldn't read the title at all.
By the way, look at the price. That one dollar was before the 70% off. Yes, I paid 30 cents for this gem.

After I opened it, I still couldn't read it.

Well, I still couldn't read it, but at least I knew it was a math book. I optimistically thought I might be able to figure out some of the problems, but, alas. No. I couldn't.
I also don't know if this book is written in Greek, but I thought it made a catchy title.

Can any of you tell me if this is indeed Greek?

Note to readers: I tried to post about fall trees but my picture wouldn't show up. This is a substitute until I can get another copy of the picture.

I took some advanced calculus classes in college but that book is way over my head. I'll pretend the answer is 4.

Looks greek to me, but I would not know greek if it jumped up and bit me in the eye! So good luck with this one! LOL

Don't know what is is (besides math), but the pages will be great for projects!

Who knows what that book is. I barely grasp my native English some days, so I'm not going to take a guess what language that is!

My brother would have loved to go shopping with you that day. He's an avid book reader and has a small collection of old books. Somehow, I don't think he'd like me asking to use them for crafts the next time I was at his house though.

Thanks for visiting my blog tonight and have a wonderful week!

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. This post reminded me of my college days (I'm a BS Math graduate by the way) and yep, it's Greek alright - LOL!
