As I mentioned recently, I haven’t been to the library most of the summer because I’ve been trying to focus a bit more on my stacks but I’ve started going back. Last week I only took out three books (which I still haven’t started) but this week I went to pick up the free issue of BookPage. I avoided the temptation of the new books shelves but the Sale Shelf was too much for me.
Especially as they were running a summer sale where every book was 50 cents.
I got some great buys I think. Here’s what I walked out with:
- Get A Life by Nadine Gordimer
- The House Gun by Nadine Gordimer
- The House of Scorta by Laurent Gaude
- A Taxonomy of Barnacles by Galt Niederhoffer
- A Family Daughter by Maile Meloy
- Banishing Verona by Margot Livesey
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
Oh, and please don’t forget to stop by tomorrow because I’ve got a giveaway to announce!
