Helen of Troy by Margaret George. The trick to picking these copies was to find some that were used by the less studious students who didn't underline everything their teachers read.
mother inspired memoirs. Speaking of memoirs, I steered clear of that section, since it seems like I have read so many of them lately.
I also got a couple of books by authors that I had read other books by and liked, including Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks and My Life as a Fake by Peter Carey. Goodreads has recommended some other books for me that I picked up, including The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman, In the Woods by Tana French and Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.
All told, I got 8 hard cover books (all in great shape), 12 paperbacks, and a dvd for my daughter, all for $30.00. Not bad! Now I have to find a place to put them . . .
Still Reading: A Moment in the Sun by John Sayles. I am about 40% into this one, and I'm liking it, but hoping it doesn't slow down.
Still Listening to: The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
