Here's a close up. Ahem....please excuse the Calvin Klein add in the background.After my arms got too sore carting around all my loot we checked out. My husband even found a hardback Caleb Carr book, one on Shackleton, a growing plants indoors book (we are thinking of doing window tomatoes and a herb garden), and a CD. Everything was a dollar so we walked out with $14 dollars worth of stuff.
Here's my loot:
I found two books for my Egyptian Book Challenge:
When We Were Gods: A Novel of Cleopatra by Colin Falconer
The Empire of Darkness: A Novel of Ancient Egypt by Christian Jacq
Two novels I've been trying to win on other people's blog contests:
Guernica by Dave Boling
One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus
And the others were just random ones that I've been wanting to read. Except Sovereign which just looked good and I grabbed it.
If you missed the book fair, no worries. Housingworks Bookstore and Cafe is so cool and is open year round. I grabbed a cup of coffee and browsed around. I would have stayed longer but my better half was getting restless so I will have to come back some other time. I know they are having a pretty big sale this weekend.
I mean seriously...this is what I want my library to look like in my house someday. Well, without the people posing for me :)
