Just a quickie post with a list of titles I picked up during my hour-long perusal of the shelves at Goodwill today, as promised, and why I picked up each:
Roald Dahl, Boy – I adore Dahl, and have never read this one.
Laurie Halse Anderson, Speak – I’ve heard fantastic things about this and have wanted to read it for some time.
Pia Mellody, Facing Love Addiction – my therapist has done intensive work with this author and the title was close to that of another book that was recently recommended and which I’ve not yet found. A brief perusal made it seem worth a go.
David Wroblewski, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle – another book blogger favorite that has been on my list for a while.
Jerry Spinelli, Wringer – I will read everything he writes, ever. Hadn’t heard of this, didn’t even bother to read the blurb, just went with it.
Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. I thought I got this through Bookmooch at one point, but it was actually a biography, not her diary. I’ve not read this since I was a girl, and am curious to see if it strikes the same chord now as it did then.
Hope Larson, Mercury – this is the only real wild card in the bunch. Never heard of the book or author, but I’m broadening my graphic novel collection and this seemed a possible winning addition.
Yay, new books, especially when all this plus a Young Players Edition subsidiary Trivial Pursuit card set only cost me $12.52!
