Today's book sale was even more fun, though, because I was looking for books to add to my collection (and I have a broader interest now). I got books I want to read soon as well as books I just want on my shelves for "someday."
Here's my haul:
From bottom to top:
Where the Red Fern Grows--a favorite from my childhood that I want to read to my own kids someday
Chaim Potok's The Chosen--super interesting book that I tried (and failed) to read as a teenager, which I would like to try again in the future
Bleak House--I've been wanting to read this for ages, but it's kind of hard to read a library copy since it's so long. (It's a Barnes & Noble copy, too, which I love.)
The Poisonwood Bible--been wanting to read this, I will eventually
Like Water for Chocolate--I've heard really good things about this book and I hope I can read it soon
Sapphira and the Slave Girl (by Willa Cather)--I've never heard of this particular book, but I've become more interested in reading Cather lately
The Prince and the Pauper (by Mark Twain)--I love Twain and I don't think I ever read the original, just abridged versions for younger kids
Black Beauty--I can't remember whether I've read it or not, but it's a good classic to have for kids.
I'm excited about owning these books! It might be years before I read some of them, but I love adding to my collection.
