Used books are one of my favourite things. I rarely, if ever, buy new books. Somehow we still have an apartment full of books.
Today we made a stop at my favourite second hand store and I stocked up on books and vintage Christmas tree ornaments. I got 3 BAGS of ornaments and 10 books for $17! Not bad, if you ask me.
Midwives by Chris Bohjalian (I read this in high school but don’t remember it well)
The Book of Hard Things by Sue Halpern
The Ten Year Nap by Meg Wolitzer
Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Power by Rebecca Wells
The Wife’s Tale by Lori Lansens
Schindler’s List by Thomas Keneally
The Fearsome Particles by Trevor Cole
The Polished Hoe by Austin Clarke
The Novelist by Angela Hunt
Have you read any of these? Any terrible? Any amazing? I am not sure which I’ll start with. I have been reading a lot less since starting school again but there really is nothing like getting caught up in a good book (although sleep deprivation isn’t cool).
The preview below is a movie that was made based on a book by the same name (I bought it used and read it this summer!) The book was really bizarre, but good. I think the movie looks like it’s going to ask some tough questions.
