A Cheap Trip to the Bookstore

Today I decided to take advantage of one of my last days of alone time before summer vacation and head to Half Price Books while Z was at school. I was looking for a couple of specific books for my brother but didn't find what I was looking for. I did however find three new-looking hardcover books for two dollars each. Here's what I brought home --

Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende -- I've been meaning to read something by Allende for years so when I saw this one on the clearance carts, I just decided to go for it and start with this one.

The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde -- I'm sure you've figured out by now that I'm a huge fan of the Thursday Next series but I've always been tentative about the newer Nursery Crimes series. However, recently I looked at my TBR books and found that they were much too serious. I needed something with some humor and so Fforde it is!

The Sister by Poppy Adams -- I read and reviewed this book already but it was a library copy and I'm sure I will want to read it again and try and figure out more of its secrets. So again, at two dollars for a hardcover, I couldn't pass this up!

Buying joy in a bag at six dollars a pop,

  1. Aha!! If you figure out The Sister, let me know! I'm still confused about what actually happened!
