Book Buys – September 2016

Earlier this month, Jay and I ventured to the Bethlehem Public Library for their fourth book sale this year! This place is an absolute gem. They have four to five sales each year and the shelves are packed with a huge variety of books. Plus, you rarely pay more than $1 per item.

These are the books we picked up in September:


Shopaholic and Sister by Sophie Kinsella – Despite not enjoying shopping myself, I absolutely loved reading this series in high school. I’m so close to collecting them all!

Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella – I’m a fan of Kinsella’s other chick lit as well, so I figured I’d pick this one up also. 

Redwall by Brian Jacques – The last time we attended this book sale I accidentally picked up Martin the Warrior (a book I already own). As we waited in line, I was thrilled to see a hardcover copy of Redwall sitting on the shelf. This is the first book in the Redwall series and I’m hoping to collect them all.

New York by Edward Rutherford – If you’re a fan of sweeping historical sagas, Rutherford is the author for you. In each of his books he focuses on the history of a city from its creation to present day. He follows a handful of families throughout the years and the significant events that take place there.


The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton – Although Kate sticks to the same format, I still generally enjoy her novels. I know I’ll get a solid piece of historical fiction with a healthy dose of mystery, intrigue, and plot twists.

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley – The legend of King Arthur is retold through the eyes of the women. This is considered one of the best stories in the fantasy genre.

The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King – I recently lost a bet to Jay and his prize was the first book in the Dark Tower series. At the book sale he picked up this one, which is also a part of that collection.

Gerald’s Game by Stephen King – To be honest, I’d never even heard of this book when Jay showed it to me at the book sale. A wife is left alone in a remote cabin after her husband dies during a romantic getaway. Sounds creepy…

Where do you usually go to buy books?

  1. It makes me feel so much better to see other people buying as many books as me. 😉 I love our public library sales. We also have a Half Price Books chain store near us, which buys my books and gives me money to buy more. Yay! 🙂

    1. Oh yes, the book buying is quite a problem. That sounds awesome that you can sell some books to get new ones! I’ll have to look up that chain.

  2. We took our kids (ages 1 and 3) to the summer book sale at our local library and they thought it was the greatest thing ever. As many books as you fit in a shopping bag for $3 and my husband told them, “You will probably never hear this again, but…you can have whatever you want.”

  3. I live for library book sales!! Remember Me is a cute story. It’s light and fluffy, exactly what you would expect, and is easy to fly through.
