There’s a great annual book fair in this town that I’ve been going to for the last couple of years. The selection was not as great as last year, and I ended up buying a bunch of books that I plan to read in the future, but not necessarily soon. All of thirteen of the books cost me $15. Unless otherwise said, I haven’t read any of these books.
Left column (from top down):
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
Selected Plays by Anton Chekhov – Great for my Russian Reading Challenge.
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes – Well, one day.
Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik – The most expensive book I bought at $3.50, but I’ve read this book and loved it.
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde – Someone priced this book at $0.25! How could I not buy such a fun book for a quarter?
William, an Englishman by Cicely Hamilton – It was a dollar, and I bought it for the nice edition and binding. I have never heard of the author or the book. It looks like a terrible read too.
Right Column (top down):
The Mill on the Floss by George Eilot – Seen the miniseries so buying the book is a type of masochism
Tess of the d’Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy
Summer by Edith Wharton
Bleakhouse by Charles Dickens
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand – More masochism?
The Known World by Thomas P. Jones – Pulitzer book that I haven’t really heard of, but I’m trying to read more Pulitzers.
