Fall Book Sale 2010

I think this fall had to be my best library book sale to date! I got 35 books for $2.00. That, my friends, is approximately 5.7 cents per book. I'm thrilled about the books I got, too. I found several classics and a lot of other notable books. I've never listed the books I got at a sale before, so I thought I would do it this time around. I'm always curious when certain books hit my shelves and I thought you book lovers out there might be interested as well. Let me know if you've read any of these and what you thought!

That is seriously such a great deal! I'm so jealous!

I too got my copy of Their Eyes Were Watching God at a library sale. I really liked it.

I listened to Angela's Ashes as an audiobook and loved it. Probably one of my favorite books of all time. I've since listened to 'Tis as well and thought it was great too!

I've never read any of these, which is surprising cos I *am* a reader! I'm very impressed at such a great bargain!

wow girl! you got some awesome books! i love reading!! i loved Their Eyes Were Watching God, it's a great one. Mike loves Franny & Zooey like a billion. My mom really likes Anna Quindlen. Joyce Carol Oates is a mean good writer who I've read a bunch of in school for the MFA, also Stegner (with your two copies!) is supposed to be a really good read. Congrats on the new members of the collection girl! Keep the dream alive! :)
