If you’ve read Hobgoblin’s post today, you’ll have an idea what mine is going to be about. Yes, we went to another library sale. How could we not when it’s huge and just a few miles up the road? I swear this is the last library sale I’m going to until … next year. Here’s what I found:
- Rosamund Lehmann, A Note in Music. Litlove recommended the author to me, although not this particular title. It’s a Virago edition.
- Somerset Maugham, The Razor’s Edge. I loved Of Human Bondage, I’m ready to try another Maugham novel, and how could I resist after reading Becky’s post?
- Anne Bronte, Agnes Grey. I already have one unread Anne Bronte novel (The Tenant of Wildfell Hall), but I love having unread Victorian novels lying around, so I snatched it up.
- Frances Burney, Camilla. She has two very long novels I haven’t yet read, this one and Cecilia. Someday I’ll get to both of them.
- Elizabeth Taylor, A Game of Hide and Seek. I discovered Taylor last summer when I read two of her novels and loved them, so I’m happy to find another.
- Rose Macaulay, The Towers of Trebizond. Surely this will make Emily happy! I found a pretty NYRB classics edition, and it was only $1.50.
- Penelope Fitzgerald, The Book Shop. This is a slim volume, and how could I resist the title? I’ve never read Fitzgerald, but I keep hearing she’s good.
- Nicholson Baker, Room Temperature. Yes, I am a Nicholson Baker fan.
- Edith Wharton, The Buccaneers. I love the Wharton novels I’ve read, and Hepzibah writes about Wharton so well, I had to get this one.
- William Styron, Sophie’s Choice. This kind of speaks for itself, doesn’t it? A great book, so I hear.
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Biographia Literaria: Biographical Sketches of My Literary Life and Opinions. To further my interest in the romantics. Copies on Amazon seem like of pricey, so I’m glad I got it.
Who knows when I’ll actually read these, but I’m happy to have them now.
