It's difficult to resist sifting through tables of books when, for one dollar, you can fill a bag.
And I didn't, when I stopped by the local library to return a book and discovered this sale. Those pictured actually filled two plastic shopping bags because two of them were quite large and heavy.
Would I have purchased them at their regular used book price? Maybe not. But here's the reason for the choices I made:
The Secret History by Donna Tartt - I have read this book recently but it was stored on my Kindle reader, which is now "gone" because I inadvertently placed it in the washing machine. I bought this for my sister.
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck - read it decades ago but don't own a copy. I may want to reread it someday.
The Cat who Came for Christmas by Cleveland Amory - Sounds like a fun read. Gave it to my brother-in-law.
The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher - I have this one in paperback and have read it more than once. Love it and wanted a hardback copy.
Perrine's Literature - am not familiar with this college textbook but noticed it includes several authors' stories/poems I want to read. Very heavy book, in both weight and content!
Eat More Weigh Less - contains some good low-fat recipes.
Fortune's Favorites by Colleen McCullough - have never heard of this book. Picked it because my sister loved The Thorn Birds by this author. It's hers when she's ready for it.
I came home with lots of books for $2. Have you read any of these? Do you ever buy second-hand books?
