Stacking the Shelves #3

I've really hit the jackpot these last couple weeks with books! My shelves are getting really full!

Barnes and Noble's Haul

I brought in the below haul from Barnes and Nobel, which I wrote about last week so read more about that HERE
  • The Completes Works of William Shakespeare
  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
  • Beowulf translated by J.R.R. Tolkien

Used Bookstore Haul #1

As a reward for myself for doing well on my test Thursday, I stopped by my town's used bookstore. I've meant to stop there for awhile now but I never had. I'm glad I did because I grabbed a great haul! 
  • Bleak House by Charles Dickens
  • Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
  • The Princes and the Pauper by Mark Twain
  • Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
  • The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
  • All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  • Vanity Fair by William Thackeray 

Used Bookstore Haul #2

I went back to the used bookstore after my last class period before Spring Break and accumulated some more books and spent probably more money than I should have. :) I've heard good things about the Diaries but I'm slightly apprehensive. Buying them was a scary step for me but I hope they pay off in the end. :)
  • Killer Angels by Michael Shaara- I found out when I got home I already had a copy of this but I love the book so much that I'm not going to complain that I now have two copies. :)
  • The Last Full Measure by Jefferey Shaara
  • Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • Life Expectancy by Dean Koontz
  • Hercule Poroit's Christmas by Agatha Christie
  • The Harlequin Tea Set by Agatha Christie
  • Elephants Can Remember by Agatha Christie
  • Mr. Darcy's Diary by Amanda Grange
  • Captain Wentworth's Diary by Amanda Grange
  • Edmund Bertram's Diary by Amanda Grange
  • Henry Tilney's Diary by Amanda Grange
  • Mr. Knightley's Diary by Amanda Grange

  1. What a wonderful deluge of new books! Happy reading!

  2. There is nothing better than a trip to a used book store. One of my favourite places to visit.

    1. It's one of my new favorite places now for sure! :)

  3. Great haul! I love the Harlequin Tea Set from Agatha Christie especially!

    1. Yes! I'm loving how my collection of Agatha Christie novels is growing! :)

  4. So many great books!!! I've enjoyed so many from your list. I hope you enjoy Amanda Grange's series. I have read half of them so far, and, they were quite enjoyable. A few were LOVE for me, but all were at the very least like!

  5. Love that you were able to find so many awesome used books! A lot of classics in there. Great haul!

  6. Ooh! I love finding books at used bookstores:D

    O_O Let's hope they get the Mr. Tilney's diary right...;)

    1. Yes indeed! Mr. Tilney is one of my favorites!

  7. I love Grange's "Diary" books! They are the only Austen pastiches I like well enough to own and re-read. They're great fun -- not as deep as Austen, but a cool look at what was going on elsewhere in the stories. Mr. Tilney's Diary is my favorite, then probably Wentworth, Brandon, and Darcy, and Knightley, in that order. Which is not the same order as my order of who's my favorite Austen heroes at all, actually. (That would be Wentworth, then Tilney, then Knightley and Darcy tied for 3rd. Now you know.)

    There are two used bookstores in my city, and also a thrift store with an amazing book section. And my library does semi-annual used book sales. It's a dangerous business, going out my front door -- there's no telling which of those I might be swept off to.

    1. I'm encouraged now. I've had bad experiences with other Austen pastiches so I was hesitant about these. You've given me hope. ;)
