I forgot when I did my book haul post yesterday, about the book sale one of the local churches was putting on today. This is the second of their sales I've been to, and I am now a fan - not a big selection, but lots of quality.
Books I've never heard of before but looked good:
Books I've seen/heard of before and have been moderately interested in reading:
That last one, I bought not only because I'm eventually going to read all of Christie's work, but because the pulpy cover just called to me - I love it!
I'll admit, I got a bit mercenary this morning. On one of the tables was a cache of 5 Ian Fleming James Bond paperbacks. Old 60's editions in good condition, for .50 each. I've read a few book articles lately about people searching for the old paperback editions, so I grabbed them. Then, I had a fit of conscience, because I have no desire to read James Bond. So I put them back and about 10 seconds later, a guy grabbed all of them and walked away, which made me feel both better about myself and like I wanted to kick myself too.
I moved on, and on my last run of the tables (to make sure I hadn't missed anything), I found all 5 of the books again - the guy had changed his mind and put them back. So this time, I grabbed them. I'm not sure what the heck I'm going to do with them, but one of them is a first edition. I am going to try to put my conservation lessons to the test and gently clean them up - then decide what to do from there.
