After that, I went shopping... for books. Lots of books. I hit up Half Ebay (an ebay for books) and bought 11 used books. I've had many of these on my wish list and I finally made the investment. After much late night perusing and $67.38 (including shipping) I had 11 used books. I love used books because they are good for the environment and the pocket book. Even with the $3.49 per book for shipping, they are still a bargain!
I have a great mix of fiction and nonfiction, old and new:
- In Defense of Food : Michael Pollan
- The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao : Junot Diaz
- American Psycho : Bret Easton Ellis
- On the Road : Jack Kerouac
- Red Tent : Anita Diamant
- Angels & Demons : Dan Brown
- Walden Or, Life in the Woods : Henry David Thoreau
- Garbage Land : Elizabeth Royte
- The Great Gatsby : F. Scott Fitzgerald, Matthew Joseph Bruccoli, Scott F. Fitzgerald
- The Reader : Bernhard Schlink
- The Devil in the White City : Erik Larson
They've already started arriving and I'm so excited to start reading! Some many books so little time! What books are on your wish list right now?
