Thrift Store Treasure Trove

One of the local thrift stores near my place of work has a special where you can load up a basket of books for $5.00. Normally, I’ll pick up 2-3 books while I’m there, not enough to take advantage of the special deal. However, when I went on Saturday, I hit the jackpot and loaded up. The fun part was shopping, the not-so-fun part was hauling them back to my car which was about half a mile away.

For $5.00, I picked up:

  • The Magician King by Lev Grossman
  • Five classic Fear Street books by R.L. Stine (The New Evin, The Cheater, The First Scream, The Dead Lifeguard, and Broken Hearts) — which I’m planning to hand off to my niece if she doesn’t already have them. It’s time to introduce her to some of my childhood favorites.
  • Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  • Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
  • Men at War edited by Ernest Hemingway
  • Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
  • Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination by Helen Fielding
  • Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

One thought on “Thrift Store Treasure Trove

  1. I recognised about four of those titles, and I reckon that any two of them would have been a bargain at that price. Nicely done. I’ve just returned from a holiday in the Scottish Highlands (doing what you normally show in your pics). I’m still on holiday for a week but have to catch up.
    Good luck with your reading target.
