Oh man, the library sale was nuts. There were so many people and it was hard to get a look at stuff. I did okay but only came away with eight books. That’s not the usual amount I find at a library sale. Hmm, maybe I’ll go back on Sunday when it’s less crowded.
Anyway, here are the books I found:
- Foreign Affairs by Alison Lurie. Dorothy W. had a great post on this book recently so I was happy to find this copy.
- The Golden Child by Penelope Fitzgerald. I’ve read two of her books before and remember liking them. I hadn’t heard of this one but it sounds good.
- The Collected Stories of Clare Boylan. I know I’ve read about this author somewhere recently.
- The Labors of Hercules by Agatha Christie. Another Poirot mystery to add to my growing Christie library.
- Emily Dickinson is Dead by Jane Langton. I just couldn’t resist the title, plus it has some charming little sketches.
- In the Springtime of the Year by Susan Hill. I picked this one up without reading it based on the author alone but this book sounds really sad. I don’t think I’ll read this any time soon.
- Maigret and the Flemish Shop by Georges Simenon. Another detective who I’ve heard about but haven’t read yet.
- The Mammoth Book of Victorian & Edwardian Ghost Stories. I am so ready for the R.I.P. Challenge!
Some good finds for $7. This weekend I will be adding my books to my Bookpedia and finding room for them on the shelves. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
