Book Sale Season Is Here!

I recently scored great books at area book sales.

What I Bought

An Episode of Sparrows by Rumer Godden

  • Dear Life by Alice Munro
  • Collected Stories of John O’Hara
  • Literary Brooklyn: The Writers of Brooklyn and the Story of American City Life by Evan Hughes
  • Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton
  • A Separate Peace by John Knowles
  • The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers
  • A Movable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
  • The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
  • Shore Chronicles: Diaries and Travelers’ Tales from the Jersey Shore 1764-1955 edited by Margaret Thomas Buchholz
  • The Story of Cinema by David Shipman
  • The Illustrated Brontes of Haworth by Brian Wilks
  • The Oxford Illustrated Literary Guide to Great Britain and Ireland edited by Dorothy Eagle and Hilary Carnell

Some of these books I have read before (McCullers, Knowles, Sinclair) but not for a long time.

The Oxford Guide I have wanted for a while, and the Illustrated Brontes are interesting.

I own the DVD of the British series of the same name, and the Brontes are a fascinating family.

There is a great website to track down book sales in your area: Book Sale Finder.

Thank you for reading The Literary Lioness!

I love books, writing, film, and television.
