Morning Meanderings… Its Going To Be A Big Book Week

Good morning! 😀

This past weekend I was up North with a couple of friends.  It is a tradition to go the last weekend of July and one of the reasons I love this trip is the Silver Bay Book Sale.  Yup, at 8:45 am on Saturday the three of us waited in a short line to get in the library when the doors opened at 9. 

Here is what I walked out with:

Now to bad at a 25 each on the paperbacks and $1.00 for the hard cover.   Two books I am really excited about are Shanghai Girls as I have yet to read Lisa See and A Night To remember because I am fascinated with all things Titanic.

Brainerd’s library sale is this Thursday.  It is a much bigger sale and I am quite sure I will have a larger pile than this to post on Friday.  😛

  1. You are going to love Shanghai Girls!!! Please let us know what you thought about it.

  2. I love book sales, somehow I always end up with a whole bag full. I am trying to limit myself until I actually read and pass along some of the books that are already in my house. So many always jump out at me. I hope you enjoy your new finds!

  3. Can I borrow the Kate Atkinson? I’ll be right over. (I wish) I love library sales! 🙂

  4. Nice loot! I have a copy of Don’t Lets Go for the Dogs Tonight that I picked up at BEA. I think it looks really good.

  5. That looks like a great stack of books. Have read one or two of them – it’s so good seeing people about to start books you know and love. Hope you enjoy the Kate Atkinson in particular!

  6. Sheila, I was also out of town this weekend and had to resist going to a used book sale. We recently moved and I still have boxes to unpack-I need to finish that off before adding more to the load.

  7. your book sales are incredible! must say loved snow flower and the secret fan ..shanghei girls not so much…maybe i was expecting too much because a friend raved about shanghei girls…and the sequel to it just came out!
    would look forward to your review of the titanic one…love titanic and the holocaust…it sounds bad but the tragedybehind it all just makes for spellbinding reading and since you know it really happened your brain just whirls around
    have heard of birth house…good things
    some of the others have been on my shelves forever…maybe you reading them will make me pull them down!

    • I actually bought that one last month (full price) because I heard such good things about it. I am hoping to nominate it for our September book club read and picked up this copy for 25 cents. 😀

      I know what you mean about Titanic and Holocaust… like is so not the right word but I do that too…. I appreciate knowing more about these topics.

  8. It looks like you found some real bargains!

  9. Ooh, I see some good ones there! I haven’t read that Kate Atkinson…love her books!

    The Jacquelyn Mitchard is one I have and loved reading….

    Also Anita Shreve’s A Wedding in December.

    Enjoy!

  10. I loved both of the Lisa See books! I have not read A Night to Remember but it does sound very good. You did good at this sale. I can’t wait to see what you pick up at the Brainerd sale!

  11. I’m surprised you found Shanghai Girls. Usually they need all the copies for the newer books. Looks like a good stash, though!

  12. Oh how I love library sales! You did really well.

  13. Our book sale is this Fri. and Sat. I can’t get there until Sat. this year but I know there will be tons of books to choose from. Big day!

  14. I love a good book sale! The Titanic book sounds right up my alley. I read The Scandalous Summer of Sissy LeBlanc a few years ago and really liked it.

  15. I am with you! I can not resist a good library book sale! Looks like you picked up some goodies.

  16. What great finds! Book sales like that are the best. 🙂

  17. I loved Shanghai Girls, I hope you’ll enjoy it too 🙂
