Kristi (KristiCasey) | 660 comments That B&N is a dangerous place! I didn't use to be an issue for me as I don't have one all that close, but now that my kids are old enough to like being taken to the mall I find myself in there a little more frequently.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I took my kids because they had books they wanted to pick up with their allowance and I walked out with 4 books of my own. Oy!


message 2454: by [deleted user] (new)

Trade back book was: Michael Chabon's : The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.


message 2455: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh, and i also purchased, finally "S." by John Updike. Love his books!!!! I know it's part of a series on his obsession of Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter". To this day, I'll never forget that book along with Hester Prynne or Mr.Arthur Dimsdale from American Lit. (and that was in high school I read it-(cough!)
My library was sick of me hogging their copy. (Although, I already bought most of Updike's book's on my kindle a long time ago. :-)! Total book addict!

message 2490: by Marcus (new)

Marcus Hobson | 1 comments There is something wonderful about finding a good book in the library sale or the second-hand shop. New books are so expensive these days.
Every year here in Tauranga on New Zealand's eastern side, there is a massive charity book sale. My love is to find old hardbacks and if I can, first editions. Plus the books I really want to read in any format when they are only a dollar or two.
This year, for less than the cost of one new paperback, my haul was:
Keat's Publisher by Edmund Blundon 1st ed 1936
All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque 1st 1929
Captain Cook's Voyages 1768-1779 boxed Folio edition
A Fool's Alphabet by Sebastian Faulks 1st
Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach 1st
The Silmarillion by J R R Tolkien 1st
The Winter of our Discontent by John Steinbeck 1st

And for some general reading;
Fragrant Harbour by John Lanchester
Casino Royale by Ian Fleming
Cannery Row, Sweet Thursday and The Wayward Bus all John Steinbeck

Now that is what I call a good morning's work...

Colleen  D | 262 comments Lol I can't wait until the Northfield, MN book fair in a week and a half. Two years ago a woman bought a copy of Profiles in Courage for $1. Days later she noticed it was a signed copy to a US senator (Ed Thye of Northfield) who served with Kennedy when he was a junior senator in Massachusetts. After authenticating the signature she sold the book to a rare books dealer in NY for $3,000.

I just like to hoard books to read though. :)
