Ever since I moved here, I've been overwhelmed with events; academic, artistic, community, personal. But when I saw there was a used book sale this weekend, I couldn't resist. And when I saw that it was $1 for a paperback and $2 for a hardback, well...
Some of these are old favorites that I didn't actually own, like Certain Women by Madeleine L'Engle,Gloriana's Torch by Patricia Finney, and The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares. Others are from known and beloved authors such as Philippa Gregory and Alexander Pushkin. Similarly, the Allende and the Erdrich are sequels to books that I've already read.
I saw the Barbara Pym book and thought I'd try it out, since I know Boston Bibliophile is a fan.
The MLA Handbook I thought might come in handy; A Passage to India is a classic I've wanted to read for a while.
A Traveler in Time, however, is my big gamble. I've heard neither of the book nor the author, but the title and cover caught my fancy, and time will tell!
