Library Book Sale Finds

We celebrated Connor’s first month birthday by going to a library book sale! It’s an annual tradition to make the trek over to New Jersey for this sale. The sheer volume of books is astonishing and we always leave with a huge haul. This year I found a few books for me and a few for Connor.

The Passage by Justin Cronin – FOX recently made this trilogy into a TV series and I’ve heard good reviews of both the show and the book. I’m always a proponent of reading the book first, so I’ll give this a whirl sometime soon. A shadowy government pursues a young girl for an experiment in nightmarish future.

Elin Hilderbrand – I only started reading Elin Hilderbrand’s novels within the past few months and I’m completely hooked on her. I snagged lovely hardcover versions of Here’s To Us and The Matchmaker just in time for summer.

The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel – Strobel’s more well-known book, The Case for Christ, is still on my list to read. However, this followup sounds just as interesting.

The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame – A children’s classic about four animal friends and their adventures.

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle – This was one of my favorites growing up!

Dr Seuss Books – Although there were loads of Dr Seuss books to choose from, I picked three of his most famous: The Cat in the Hat, One Fish Two Fish, and Green Eggs and Ham.

  1. YES! I actually have a post coming up tomorrow about the most amazing thing (for me, probably not anyone else, haha) I found at a used book sale this past weekend. I LOVE used book sales. Little makes me introvert heart happier than being able to bring home a huge amount of books for not much money. You’ve got some great finds there! 🙂

  2. Oh, I LOVE library book sales! And one of our local community groups does annual fundraising used book fairs too, always walk out with my arms straining under the weight of a haul. You did so well here, how lovely to pick up The Wind In The Willows! Enjoy!
