F: Fantastic Thrift Store Finds

On Friday afternoon, I popped by a couple of local thrift stores in search of books and other hidden treasures. I didn’t score so much in the “other” category, but found a fantastic trove of literary gems.


From the top right: The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas, The Emerald City of Oz by L. Frank Baum, Winning Colors by Elizabeth Moon, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi, The Black Ice by Michael Connelly, Three Bedrooms, One Corpse by Charlaine Harris, Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding, Amsterdam by Ian McEwan, Sushi for Beginners by Marian Keyes, Amrita by Banana Yoshimoto, and The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne.

  1. Hi April. I didn’t realise how time-consuming the A to Z was going to be, but at least I think it’s going well.
    You got quite a haul on your visit to that store. In the UK we have a chain of stores called ‘The Works’ which have good books of all descriptions at seriously knocked down prices. The title of the store doesn’t come from ‘the works’ as in writing – it’s partly that, and from the fact that it sells a range of goods … the works, and a lot of books.
    We don’t have as many branches as a few years ago, but when I go into a branch, I have yet to leave empty-handed.
