I stopped checking out books from the library a few months ago (the nasty fines I had wracked up because I really just couldn't get the books back on time!). But that doesn't mean I can't support the library by going to their quarterly Friends of the Library sale. Never mind that I haven't read a single one of the five books I bought last quarter, yesterday I was off to this quarter's sale. I could easily have picked up 30 or 40 books but it would have been so hard to smuggle in that many books. And I was at least disciplined enough not to buy anything that wasn't already pretty high up on the wish list.
Here's what I found:
The End of the Affair by Graham Greene
Glory Cloak by Patricia O'Brien
The Lady and The Unicorn by Tracy Cheveliar
The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister
The English Major by Jim Harrison
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe
The Well and The Mine by Gin Phillips
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
Oh, there were so many more books that wanted to come home with me! But I really couldn't spend any more money with the piles of books I already have to be read. I did justify the whole expedition by buying "Crazy Heart" by Thomas Cobb for The Big Guy. And if I'm lucky, he won't ask what else I bought while I was there!
