Massive Book Haul (Week of 9/21/2015) #bookporn

Here’s everything from yesterday’s and today’s book buying excursions. The Sebold’s and the Clancy’s were bought for resale. All of those are first editions. Half of these were fifty cents apiece, and the other half (from today) were half off, only costing me a quarter each. The Michael Moorcock book pictured is a first edition, first printing I snagged for $0.25. All in all, I didn’t even spend ten bucks. πŸ™‚


Have you guys read any of these? See any favorites, or ones you hate? Most of these are authors I’ve heard of but never read. Let me know how I did. 



That’s all for now. Thanks for perusing my finds.


*hugs and high fives*






Oh, and these two new non-book related additions to the family… Meet Franky and Bob. πŸ™‚

  1. I read Calvino’s Invisible Cities years ago. Very strange but I liked it. It chapter can be read on it’s own and the entire little book can be rearranged.

    I adore Pillars of the Earth. Great characters and plenty of historical facts about cathedral building.

    I read The Alchemist a few years back and didn’t care for it. All the women are in subservient roles.

  2. Ah, nice, I love Franky and Bob!

    Oh man, you scored big-big! The Pillars of The Earth is one of my favorite books (though I found the writing mediocre,) while And Then There Were None is one of my most disliked books. I see several that I’m interested in, like the China Mieville, Nietzsche, The Alchemist, Tolstoy, Amy Tan, Calvino, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Also, the Greg Iles looks like an oldie…but a goodie. As you can see, my tastes are all over the place. I pride myself in being eclectic, as I’m sure you all do, too. Oh, and I love Lawrence Block.:)

    I’m looking forward to your thoughts on all these. Terrific book haul!!
