Used Book Sale...

A few weeks ago I received an email announcing an annual used book sale sponsored by a church in a nearby town. I promptly wrote down the date, time, and directions to the church not knowing what to expect. I only hoped there would be a few books of my liking.

This sale was beyond what I could have imagined. I stepped into the church basement and saw this...

Tables and tables...

Full of books.

I only brought $20 in cash with me (as a means of self control) and I happily shopped for well over an hour and ended up with: 

  • Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand
  • Summer of '49 by David Halberstam
  • She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb
  • A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
  • The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus 
  • Underworld by Don DeLillo
  • The Women Who Raised me by Victoria Rowell
  • Morrie: In His Own Words by Morrie Schwartz 
  • Atonement by Ian McEwan
  • Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult 
  • Midwives by Chris Bohjalian
  • Run by Ann Patchett
  • By the Time You Read This by Lola Jaye
  • Lucky Man by Michael J. Fox
  • The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
  • The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory 
Total Spent: $19
