I really didn't intend to go to a Half Price Books Tent Sale. I was just there like I normally am and they happened to be having a tent sale. I couldn't not go out to the parking lot. I had never been to one! And to be fair only that right pile is from the tent sale. I had been wanting to do a week in books post for awhile now and thought this would be the perfect time.
So let's see:
Normally priced Half Price Books books (Left pile, top six)- Lenore pointed out the book The Myth of You & Me about a week or so ago in the comments of Melissa Walker's post about Best Friend Breakups . Some other new releases mostly YA and a book about books! This was my original intent in going to HPB, after returning the Tent Sale books to the car we went back into the store.
New independent bookstore (Left pile, next two)- Today was their grand opening, big article in Friday's newspaper. I bought The Overachievers and got a "free classic" (Wuthering Heights).
ARCS (Left pile, next three)- Librarything's Early Reviewer's Summer Blowout, which I am reading right now, 20 Fragments of a Ravenous Youth, and The No Complaining Rule (thanks J. Kaye!)
Bookmooch (Left pile, bottom four)- Freakonomics what! I love that book, I only got to read half of it about a year ago before having to return it to the library.
Half Price Books Tent Sale Books- Flowers in the Attic, Melissa Walker talked about this "classic" in her vlog on YA New York this week, I feel really bad, I mooched a copy yesterday and found this one today so I canceled it! :( A hardcover copy of Nick and Norah's Playlist for a dollar! what!!
I also bought several books I had already, that were better copies or paperbacks so i could swap out my big hardcovers! So I gave my bookmooch inventory a nice bulk up today.
I also got a few things for some giveaways! So look for the first any day now!
What book(s) did you buy this week that you probably shouldn't have?
