The Book Sale, Round 2

Yesterday, I visited a local library that was having their annual book sale. I walked away with a great selection, but knew I’d be coming back. They changed up the rules for the last day of the event. They let me take as many as I could carry, but charged two bucks per bag. I ended up with:

Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres
Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
Harper Collins German Concise Dictionary (1999 2nd Edition)
The Hunt For Red October by Tom Clancy
Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis
Major British Writers (1959 University of Michigan Edition)
The New College French & English Dictionary (1988 2nd Edtion)
The Norton Reader 12th Edition
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
The Pioneers by James Fenimore Cooper
The Rainmaker by John Grisham
Shogun by James Clavell
Something Rotten by Jasper Fforde
The Sum of All Fears by Tom Clancy
The Voyage of the Narwhal by Andrea Barrett

To quote a certain director, “I may have gone too far in a few places.” But for only four bucks, it was totally worth it.

Book Sales Are Awesome!

Hey, San Francisco Bay Area folks. If you’re in the vicinity of Solano County and love books, drop by the JFK Library in Vallejo tomorrow. They’ve been having their annual book sale for the last week, and it’s going to end tomorrow. I didn’t hear about this until a couple of hours ago, and I was afraid they’d be picked over already. However, there’s still a huge selection of books left:

After going through the shelves a few times – and considering how much I could conceivably carry in my backpack – I ended up with:

A Passage To India by E.M. Forster
The Eyre Affair
by Jasper Fforde
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
by Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Played With Fire
by Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest
by Stieg Larsson
The Gulag Archipelago
by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Select Orations of Cicero (Allen & Greenough’s 1905 Edition)
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
by John le Carre
The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde

A stack of awesome reading for only ten bucks. So good!
