Library sale score

This weekend is my library’s semi-annual book sale, so of course I’ve been there twice already! Here’s what I’ve picked up so far:

library sale 5-3-14

Evelyn Waugh, The Loved One — Supposed to be one of his funniest books, and it’s dedicated to Nancy Mitford! I have a craving to read this back-to-back with Mitford’s The Blessing, which she dedicated to Waugh. But would such reciprocity create a tear in the space-time continuum?

Donna Moore, Old Dogs — Someone recommended this to me as a hilarious caper, and how could I resist that?

Elisabeth Sanxay Holding, The Innocent Mrs. Duff / The Blank Wall — This author is supposed to be one of the pioneering novelists of suspense.

Jennifer Robson, Somewhere in France — I’d been eyeing this WWI-era novel in Barnes & Noble, so I’m glad I had the chance to pick it up for a much lower price!

Sophie Kinsella, I’ve Got Your Number — Read this a couple years ago and thought that it was one of Kinsella’s best books.

Georgette Heyer, Simon the Coldheart — I’m only a few Heyers away from a complete collection at this point!

Georgette Heyer, The Grand Sophy — I actually already had a copy of this one. *blush* But it’s my favorite Heyer, and this edition is nicer and has a prettier cover!

Paula Byrne, The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things — I do love me some Austen, and I’ve read and enjoyed some of Byrne’s other work, so this one should be a winner!

Total cost: $24, and everything is in very good shape! I’d like to get back to the book sale tomorrow, but I don’t know if I can make it work. But either way, I’m definitely pleased with my haul!

      Why thank you! I know some book sales do deeper discounts (like stuffing a whole bag full of books for $5), but I still got my haul for a lot less than I would have gotten them new!
