A Report from The Friends of the Library Booksale
Every year,the Friends of the Waco-McLennan County Library hold a booksale. My attendance at the sale has been sporadic, but I’ve loved going when I’ve managed to make it. This is what I’ve picked up.
Four books for my nieces. Don’t know if they’ll like them, but I’m hopeful.
Of the books I had on my list here is what I managed to find.
The Book of Skaith by Leigh Brackett. Yes! I was hoping for a Brackett. Of course that also means the library no longer has their copy.
The Gunslinger by Stephen King. Yes. I fucking love this book.
Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny. I was hoping for some Amber, but I’ve been dying to read this, as well.
I am bummed that I couldn’t find any Tanith Lee or find copies of The Neverending Story and The Phantom Toll Booth. Maybe next time.
In addition to what was on my list, I also picked up these interesting books.
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. I guess this means I can take back the book I checked out of the library!
The Beast Master by Andre Norton. Damn, I forgot about her.
Pushing Ice by Alastair Reynolds. I loved his Chasm City. And I need more science fiction.
The Black Company by Glen Cook. I love this book.
The Door into Fire by Diane Duane. I’ve wanted to read this book for a while. I had to jump on it.
And finally, Swords in the Mist by Fritz Leiber. I am rather fond of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
No manga, unfortunately. And not a good selection of art instructional books. But I did wait till the third day, so who knows what I missed.
All in all, a very good haul.
