For Paris in July, click here to my home page. I’ll be starting to post the first week of July.
Saturday Snapshot is hosted by At Home With Books.
Every year the gigantic book sale organized by the Servants Anonymous Society in our City kicks off my summer
reading stock-up. This weekend begins their tenth annual book sale at the Crossroads Market. Here’s a photo of the books I hauled back yesterday, all in like-new condition, all for $1.50 each since I’ve got 20 of them.
Many of the titles I’ve been watching out for some time. Some of them I came to know when I read their reviews on your blogs. Glad I can find them in the book sale and in such good condition. A few of the books look like they haven’t been opened.
Here’s the list in no particular order:
Travels In The Scriptorium by Paul Auster
England, England by Julian Barnes
Pulse, stories by Julian Barnes
Home by Marilynne Robinson
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
The Tragedy of Arthur by Arthur Phillips
