"New" Books, Just What I Need!

Awhile back I ended up on the email list of some people in the area that have a book sale out of their garage twice a year. They get hundreds of books from I don't know where, ARCs, used books, school books, overstocked books, etc. They sale the kids books for 80% of list price and novels (both paper and hard back) for 25 cents!

So yesterday I went and came home with these books for only $4.75! Amazing. Do you have any major thumbs up or thumbs down reaction to any of them? Let me know!

Blessings by Anna Quindlen

Fortune Rocks by Anita Shreve

Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner

Little Women by Louise May Alcott

Anthem by Ayn Rand

The Confessions of Max Tivoli by Andrew Sean Greer

The Dark Tower by Stephen King

The Secret of Lost Things by Sheridan Hay

The Stranger by Albert Camus

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut

Mythology by Edith Hamilton

The Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut

Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander MCall Smith

Hopefully I'll actually read them all some day! (Well, I HAVE already read Little Women, so I'm on my way!)


  1. Quite a haul. There are a few there I'd probably want to read.

  2. WOW!! You Rock! That's awesome! I have many of them on my list of books to read. My brother was Kurt Vonnegut's biggest fan and he loved both of those. I read Stolen Lives. Didn't really like it...I just didn't like the writer.

    I'll be back for reviews!
