A book haul linky party for bargain loving bookworms!
Lesa is hosting this week!
Oh, brave bargain book lovers, don't wince!
After last week's marathon BBB, I wouldn't blame you for being gun-shy but I promise to be brief... brevity is the soul of wit, after all. Ha! If that is true, I must appear a real lackwit on a regular basis!
So a promise is a promise, this BBB consists solely of one single solitary book. Yep, one. But there is a catch...
This book is a three-fer! Three Jane Austen novels in one volume! Just can't quit my cheating ways, eh Leslie?
So where did I find this hefty little jewel?
At an actual antique store with antique store prices.
We are such hooligans in antique stores that I always try to purchase at least a small something--- thank goodness, I spotted this inexpensive book!
Typically, I would never pay $4.50 for a used book at my usual thrifty haunts but this one appears unread and divvied up between three novels--not bad.
The selection of novels is ideal! I owned none of these and I've never read Northanger Abbey (saw the 2007 film).
Don't you just love the cameo on the cover?
And this book is delightfully illustrated-- you know how I love picture books!
Both of these illustrations come from Sense and Sensibility.
|Look at that lush garden-- This gardener has no business lamenting!|
Do you own all the Jane Austen novels?
Thanks for reading!
