A Visit to the Book Sale

I succumbed to being on a committee committed to resurrecting the library at the Middle School at Parkside (Jackson Public Schools). The building was originally a high school so there is rather a nice space that was the library. Yesterday and today there was a book and bake sale held to raise a little money and a lot of awareness.

Although I donated a few rather nice things (newish books as well as DVD's), I planned to delight in that added shelf space. Alas!

I thought I would stop by yesterday and see what was being offered. There was actually a ton of attractive stuff unfortunately for me. Even though I managed to avoid many things, I ended up with the following for a variety of reasons: The Lion in Winter script (because we are doing a staged reading in January); Ruth Rendell's The Rottweiler; The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (because I felt I needed to refresh my memory); Then She Found Me (because I adore Elinor Lipman and don't think I read this early novel marked as a teen read); Linda Fairstein's The Kills; and Stieg Larsson's The Girl Who Played With Fire (I haven't read the first book yet but at least I won't have to go to the library for this second title). Why? I don't need anything else to read. I didn't quite fill the shelf space back up.

My name is Ann and I am a book addict.

  1. Looks like what's left from the book sale may be recycled into another sale in February!
