Bargain Book Bonanza (21): Paperback Trio

 Welcome to Bargain Book Bonanza!

A book haul linky party for bargain loving bookworms!

BBB is the place to showcase all the great books (new, used, vintage, electronic, audio) that you have scored on sale, dirt cheap or even free. 

Each Monday through Thursday, all book lovers are invited to carouse, make merry and revel with bargain book abandon!

Want to join the party? Just visit the Bargain Book Bonanza page for the particulars.

Lesa is hosting this week!

My bargain paperbacks tend to come in threes. At least the ones from the library with the never-ending sale. Why? Because paperbacks are three for a dollar or fifty cents each. And as a savvy cheapskate bargain hunter, I always go for the best deal-- even if there is really only one book that I want. 

So which one of these three did I really want?

Skeleton Crew by Stephen King

Yep, good ol' creepy King. And it is your fault! Oh yes, it is-- you just had to blog about the King book you read, didn't you!  

I haven't read any King since the early 90s and the urge to revisit the weirdness and horror has been growing stronger this last year.  

This collection contains one novella and twenty-one shortstories. Seems like a decent not too intense way to dabble but if I have any nightmares, I am blaming you!

Rounding out this BBB trio:

Like Water For Chocolate by Laura Esquivel
(I don't recall anything about the movie-- surely the book will be more memorable.)

Good Luck, Miss Wyckoff by William Inge
(Never heard of this one-- apparantly Inge wrote a couple of novels in addition to his famous plays and this is one of them.)

Have you read any of these books? 

If you have a bargain book, please share. We love to brag on bargains!

    I haven't read any of these books! But I've "promised" to read Like Water for Chocolate for one of my reading challenges this year.

    Lesa, I'll probably have my own BBB post for this week up on Thursday. =)

  2. Hi sweetie, I have read like water for chocolate. But the other two I haven't.
    We're voting on the new book club book today. Please stop by Katherines Corner. Hugs!

  3. E: For the Foodie Challenge, I bet. When I flipped through and saw recipes, I thought it would be ideal for it-- I never did sign up but maybe next year.

    K: Voted!

  4. I read Like Water for Chocolate a long time ago. I never saw the movie, I don't think. Maybe I did, because I own it. But I don't remember seeing it.

    The other two: nope and nope. I am not a horror fan and reading sticks to me, so I cannot read the King one. I've never heard of the other one.

    Our library doesn't offer such goodies too often, but maybe another branch. I will keep a look out!
