Library Sale!
So mom and I went to the library today to see what all books they had in their sale. This is what we found before the money we'd taken for the purpose ran out. None of them are ex-library and they are all in great to like new condition. Over half are hardcovers. We got a totaly of 27 for only $21. Some are more for her while others are more for me. We plan to go back. :P

1. The Prisoner of Zenda & Rupert of Hentzau by Anthony Hope (Have no idea what it is about but it looked good so I figured I'd grab it and find out when I got home.)
2. The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien
3. Capote in Kansas by Kim Powers (This sounds really good)
4. The Adventures of Robin Hood by Paul Creswick (So glad I found this. It is a gorgeous copy too.)
5. The Afghan Campaign by Steven Pressfield
6. Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani (I confess to mainly picking this up because she wrote Viola in Reel Life.)
7. Josephine by Carolly Erickson
8. Chicken Soup for the College Soul by Jack Canfield (Figured I'd get this since I'll be off to college in a couple years. Thought it'd be nice to have.)
9. Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier (I've heard a bunch about this one!)
10. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon (Another book I've heard tons of great things about.)
11. Quotable Women: A Collection of Shared Thoughts (I saw this and was like, "Aw it is so little and cute. I want it!" It is about the size of my palm but has some great and powerful quotes from very influential women in it. Just goes to show size doesn't matter. And I should know. I'm the shortest in my family. :P)
12. Language of Flowers by Kate Greenaway (Another little book. It has the different meanings of all the different flowers and some gorgeous illustrations.)
13. The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls
14. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
15. A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg
16. In My Father's House by Bodie Thoene
17. Hanna's Daughter by Marianne Fredriksson
18. Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson
19. All He Ever Wanted by Anita Shreve
20. The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig
21. If Love Were Oil, I'd be About a Quart Low by Lewis Grizzard
22. Diana: Her True Story by Andrew Morton (I really wanna read this)
23. Everything to Gain by Barbara Taylor Bradford
24. The Memory of Running by Ron McLarty
25. Remember by Barbara Taylor Bradford
26. Mad Dash by Patricia Gaffney
27. The Secret Between Us by Barbara Delinsky (Another I'm really looking forward to reading.)

And that is it. Hope you got some great books too. Have a lovely weekend. :D
