Stopped by the library the other day to pick up some books I had on hold and noticed they were having a book sale. Now they always have something on sale, but this time they had six racks of hardcovers that looked to be in good condition. And they were buy one, get one free. I decided to check it out, and I’m glad I did. I ended up with four books and spent a total of $1.25. It’s hard to beat that price. They have the library stickers on them but I can ignore those when the prices are so low.
Here’s what I brought home from the sale:
- The Intuitionist by Colson Whitehead
- War Trash by Ha Jin
- The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana by Umberto Eco
- Shogun by James Clavell
Not bad. Three of those are on my TBR list and the fourth seems to be worth the 50 cents I paid. I’m going to have to keep a look out for sales at the library from now on. It still amazes me how cheaply they sell those books.
