When I woke up this morning, I had the urge to go thrift-storing. Using my feminine wiles, I convinced Greg to go with me. The one thrift store I was planning on going to was strangely closed. We got there at 10am, but the sign on the door said “Closed, will return 9:00am”–Damn lying sign! Anyhoo, that set us back on the road, where we drove about 1/2 a mile farther down the highway and visited a thrift store that I had never been to before. I knew that some sort of divine intervention must have happened and that I had been blessed. Pulling into the parking lot, there was a big sign announcing “TODAY’S SALE: BOOKS 10¢.”
I wound up getting 8 new-to-me books for the low-low price of $0.80:
- The Sword and the Stone — T.H. White
- The Widow of the South — Robert Hicks
- Foucault’s Pendulum — Umberto Eco
- Mistborn — Brandon Sanderson
- The Mission Song — John LaCarré
- The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon — Stephen King
- The Devil Colony — James Rollins
- Bloodline — James Rollins
This in addition to the two books I picked up yard saleing last weekend:
- A Vintage Affair — Isabel Wolff
- Under the Tuscan Sun — Francis Mayes
Of course, I’m adding all these new titles after I had just organized my main bookshelf.
Yay for heaps of books and an ever-growing TBR pile!
