There hadn't been a big book sale in my town since October. It was like Christmas. I left way too early but I was so excited I couldn't wait any longer. I didn't get to go the first day because of work :( I was the first one to enter, while at home sat about 200 books in my to be read pile (cringe). Everything is 50 cents to a 1.00.
Blue Bloods (One of the first places I looked was the YA section, didn't have much and then I found this! In the romance section. YA is my new book passion)
Carolina Moon (The synopsis sounded good, I guess I didn't read it all the way through though, so hopefully this will be good. The cover is pretty ugly, but it's still in print so that's a good sign)
Why We Buy (A friend or two had to read this in college and it sounded really good to me)
Assassination Vacation (Not sure I want to necessarily read about assassinations but I've read such good things about Sarah Vowell I definitely want to give it a shot, love her covers too)
The Alchemist (Friend recommended this)
The Bean Trees (Friend recommended this)
PS I love You (Read this a few years ago and liked it, it's a mass market paperback, let's see how long I can hold onto it before swapping it out for a trade paperback)
Slaughterhouse Five (I've been meaning to read this for awhile now)
(and a few things for my sister)
This is where it gets embarrassing/buying things I really shouldn't. Darn dollar a bag!
So I will just give you a number: 14 books I shouldn't have bought. Oh +3 I found in the upstairs regular library sale.
Do you go to library sales? Do you end up buying things you really shouldn't or do you only buy a few choice books you really want? How do you control yourself?
