Did y'all take advantage of Half Price Books' Labor Day sale this weekend? You know I did! :) And it's been a while since I've done a book haul on here, so I thought I'd share my goodies. Not literally of course, but I am planning some more giveaways soon!
Okay, starting from the top we've got 2 classics that I've never read (and interestingly are both by women): Frankenstein, which I am going to save for my October Classic A Month and The Scarlet Pimpernel is one a Goodreads friend raved about so much I just had to pick it up when I saw it in the clearance section. Clarence (as my sister and I call the clearance section) was very good to me...I found an SVU book, a Nancy Drew, Nick Hornby's About a Boy (on my library list), and Michael Chabon's Summerland, because I enjoyed Kavalier & Clay so much.
I don't know if I want to get into reading all the Nancy Drew books, but the library had a bio called Girl Sleuth about the author(s) and it looked really interesting. I felt like I needed to read a few of the books first though and had planned on getting them, along with the bio, at the library Saturday. But I forgot my card (I know, blasphemy) and, even though I had my card number in my phone and my driver's license, they wouldn't let me check out. I was sad and a little annoyed. So when I saw these for super cheap, I decided to just buy them and maybe I'll give them away later! :)
I also got 2 books that I just read recently from the library and enjoyed so much, I decided to buy them...Dash & Lily's Book of Dares and Amy & Roger's Epic Detour (review will be up next week). And finally, 2 books from my to-buy list: John Green's Papertowns and Being Friends with Boys by Terra Elan McVoy. So that's my haul, pretty good right? If you got some fun new books over the holiday weekend, I'd love to hear about them!
