At a school fair I ask for any books written in a foreign language. I’m pointed to 2 Sue Barton books in German. They are $3 each—a little too pricey. 

Later, I return. They are still there. I pick them up and continue to deliberate. The person at the counter tells me that I may fill a shopping bag with books for $10. Now she’s talking! I take my time choosing, and the price falls to $5.

I walk away eventually with 21 books, including ones for speed reading, learning the English tongue, and a 'how to' for Italian.
