Two Breakfast & Books posts in one week! I think that makes me one lucky gal, because…MORE BOOKS.
Eric and I had our usual Wednesday breakfast date this morning at Perkins (YUM), and then we went to the library (like we usually do after breakfast on Wednesdays). I had one book to return and one to borrow, although I ended up borrowing two:
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane is for #TuesBookTalk, and The Fourth Bear is the second book in Fforde’s Nursery Crime series (sj and I have been reading this series and the Thursday Next series together).
THEN, while we were at the library, Eric went downstairs and found out that all of the left over books from last weekend’s book sale are FREE now. FREE. There weren’t many left that I was interested in (a lot of mass market paperbacks, and I don’t really enjoy owning those), but there were five books that I passed over on Monday that were still there:
From top to bottom: The Little, Brown Reader, Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad, The Norton Reader, William Burroughs: A Portrait by Barry Miles, and The Flounder by Günter Grass.
The Little, Brown Reader and The Norton Reader contain writing from some fantastic authors, and I’m pretty interested in reading the “unconventional but riveting portrait” (from the back cover) of William Burroughs.
And THEN, I bought this book from the little cart next to the library’s circulation desk:
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
The library always has a small cart of books for sale next to their circulation desk (each book goes for a $1 donation), and I have actually been passing this book over for a few weeks now. I keep reading really good reviews about it, though, and it sounds like something both Ashley and I will enjoy.
So in addition to the beautiful weather we’re having today, it was also another great day for books.
