BOOK SALE!!!

My library is having its annual book sale this weekend!  This is the first time I've gone (because I actually haven't been in the area that long) and it was AMAZING.  There were so many books, I don't even think I scratched the surface of what was there.  However, because I'm broke, I kept myself to a strict budget of $20.  Here's what I got.

Hard Back:
Gulliver's Travels (A old, pretty version.)
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Oryx & Crake by Margaret Atwood
Cross Bones by Kathy Reichs
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
America (The Book) by John Stewart.

Soft Back:
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares
Lush by Natasha Friend
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin
Jarhead by Anthony Swofford

Non-Books:
Season 2 of That '70s Show

I'm SO excited about all the books I've added to my shelf.  (Though, ok, That '70s Show isn't a book, but I figured it was worth it for $2.)  While I did donate a lot of books to the sale, I think I bought just as many.  I'm going to have a hard time not buying a ton more!
