It's time for the Friends of the Library book sale again! I know, I know, you've probably already heard about this from our awesome web services librarian, Brodie Austin, on Plaintalk. But since this is an event I get absolutely giddy about, quite frankly, you shall hear about it again! This is just too good to keep to myself. Today I got sixteen books, and spent less than $10. Just to give you an example, here are the books I picked up.
J.R.R. Tolkien's Unfinished Tales
Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream
Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice
Shakespeare's King Lear
Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamozov
C.S. Lewis's The Lion, The Witch, And the Wardrobe
Eric Knight's Lassie Come Home
Henry James's The Turn of the Screw
Shakespeare's As You Like It
Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass
Shakepeare's The Tempest
Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita
Jean Rhys's Sargasso Sea
Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being
William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying
Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis
(In case you can't tell, I'm trying to bulk up my Shakespeare collection at home!)
Although this was most likely just my first trip around, considering this selection, I think I restrained myself admirably.
The Friends of the Library book sale will take place in Meeting Room B/C on the first floor of the library, Friday the 23rd (Today!) from 6pm-9pm, Saturday the 24th from 9:30am to 4pm, and Sunday the 25th from 1pm-5pm. You can find more information here.
