Yard Sale Books

I’ve mentioned it a few times in the past on this blog, but I’m going to say it again. I love yard sales. Today, for the first time since my grandmother passed away, I went yard saleing. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a dreary day, but I didn’t let that stop me. I found about 4-5 places to stop along a loop that I mapped out before I left this morning. The day was mostly a bust, but I did come across one place that was selling a mini-library’s worth of books. I picked several out of the many, many boxes and wound up carrying them to my car in a box of my own. I added 11 books and 2 cook books to my collection.

  • The Hobbit/The Lord of the Rings box set from 1993 (which included the the most laughable cover for The Hobbit of all time) by J.R.R. Tolkien. 
  • Taken by Barbara Freethy.
  • Martin the Warrior by Brian Jacques.
  • The Night Manager by John LeCarre (The first LeCarre book I’ve ever owned).
  • Kidnapped and Treasure Island by Robery Louis Stevenson, Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott, and Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift (All part of a series labeled as “Priory Classics.” I’ve never heard of them, but they were neat children’s versions of the books).
