Don't you love library book sales? I love contributing to them. Our library takes people's used books to sell with the proceeds to be used for the library. They add this to their discarded books which they sell.

And I love buying books from library book sales too.

Yes, What was left over was going to the prison. Lots of crime books too.

Patti, this is a fine collection of books, I can see that, even if they are all new to me. The annual British Council Library sale used to be a big draw in Bombay. I don't know how they are doing now.

Good ones! I've read DRIVE and PRIEST and the Camilleris.

And last week I read your recommended title, MONTANA 1948. You were right - it was excellent. Have you read the collection of short stories with the same family (JUSTICE)?

No, but I will look for it right away. Thanks!

Wow! Nice haul. Reminder to self: check library calendar for next sale.

I hope this means you're feeling somewhat better, Patti.

Looks like you scored some wonderful books for a pittance, Patti!

Library sales and other book sale fundraisers are a godsend to book maniacs. We hit at least two or three every month.

Kate Morton writes interesting quasi Victorian sensation novels very much influenced by Wilkie Collins and that crowd. I'll be interested in seeing what you think of HOUSE AT RIVERTON, her first book. Her last two are better. She was accused of lifting the plot and relationships from the original "Upstairs, Downstairs" TV series which is resembles very much. Oops.

I am reading these comments but as I am only awake a couple hours a day, answers seem harder to come by.

The Earl Emerson books are definite winners, Patti. He is a definitely overlooked writer. I've read all his books so I know whereof I speak.

The others I haven't read so I can't say anything except that's the best five bucks you ever spent. :)
