Book Haul This Weekend

Last week, I hit 300 followers here on Greenish Bookshelf! Wow, thank you so much! I am honored that so many bookish friends enjoy my blog. I appreciate every comment, every like, and every book recommendation πŸ™‚

My husband asked what I would like to do to celebrate 300 followers. I didn’t even hesitate in answering I wanted to go to the book sale at our library this weekend.Β I have been looking forward to this for several weeks. And wow was it impressive!

The room was full of tables with labels. Every table was covered with books andΒ piles of books sat underneath them as well. It was book heaven!

I immediately walked to the “classics” table and found so many great classics. I had to tell myself that buying another beautiful copy of Jane Eyre was unnecessary (I have 3!). Then I wandered the full room lingering longer at the paperback fiction table where I found more books than I could carry.

The best part?! Every book was only $1!!!

Here’s my haul this weekend. Can’t wait to read these!


Some classics:
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom

A few Pulitzer Prize Winners:
Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Stout
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri

A Man Booker Prize Winner:
Life of Pi by Yann Martel

And several New York Times Bestsellers:
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
The Postmistress by Sarah Blake/

Now the hard question. Which should I read first?

Dallas area friends–do you have any favorite book sales? We’re addicted now!
