Book Buying Fool

I have an addiction....2nd and Charles and the Friends Bookstore.....
I don't think I want to be cured either....

Here's what I bought from Friends this week

Huckleberry Finn
Tom Sawyer
Prince and the Pauper

They had this really nice old hardback set of several of Mark Twain's novels, each for $1.25. I didn't buy the whole set (7 books total) but opted for these 3.

From 2nd and Charles (ie Heaven)

I took a massive amount of books to 2nd and Charles last week and racked up a nice store credit. Plus they sent me a coupon for $5 off $25. I was looking for Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand (for the 2nd time) but I was unable to find a used copy. The only copies they had were new and $27 (no way was I paying that much!) So instead, I bought these wonderful titles

Mary Had a Little Lamp by Jack Lechner (remember from a few posts back?)

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo (OMGosh, love love love)

Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller - This was actually in the free book bin so yay! Thought I would give it a try

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer - This is my pick for one of my book groups next month so I decided to go ahead and buy it. Side Note: I gave this book to my oldest sister for Christmas this past year just based on my friends raving reviews!

Bring the Rain to Kapiti Plain by Verna Aardema - This is the very first book I ever checked out from my elementary library! I have an awesome memory :)

Best Find: The Fairy Tales by Jan Pienkowski
How can you not love these illustrations?

I LOVE Edward Tulane! It's one of my favorite kids books of all time. I actually met Kate DiCamillo at ALA a few years ago and she was so awesome!
