A book haul linky party for bargain loving bookworms!
Lesa is hosting this week!
Howdy, bargain book lovers! Any superduper discounted books to show off this week?
My haul is small but mighty and I'm so excited to share it with you! Especially a couple of y'all in particular...
I picked these books up at the permanent book sale at the library-- the same library from the very first BBB post. Regular hardbacks are .50 each with new ones costing $1. Paperbacks are .50 each or three for $1. These four books cost $2.
Do you read the Stephanie Plum series?
DeLynne is a huge fan and has written about it here, here and here. She first raved about Plum to me several years ago but I didn't read one. Then colleagues and local friends raved about it but I still didn't read one. I didn't read one till I spotted the first in the series in a pile of free giveaway books at school!! No way could I pass up free and I figured the universe was telling me something.
So I read it. And it was a quick entertaining read-- it reminded me of a zany but occasionally intense tv cop/mystery show but about a bounty hunter.
No, I didn't laugh till I cried or even laugh at loud like some but I thoroughly enjoyed it. And I've been planning to continue the series... sometime...
And the time is imminent! I spotted the hardback first and debated reading the series out of order then spotted number two in the series on the paperback twirly rack. Woohoo!
But then I had to find two more paperbacks to take advantage of the three for $1 deal...
|a bit scarred but that doesn't bother me...|
Don't know how I missed Caddie Woodlawn as a kid seeing as how I was so wild about the Little House books and any book about the frontier, really. And it is a Newbery Winner-- one of my personal goals is to read all the Newbery winners and honor books.
And guess what?! I already read it and it is superior to the Little House books. I'm planning a Caddie Woodlawn post to tell more about it. Don't hold your breath though, it may take me awhile.
