The Loot!

I had an urge to visit the used bookstore yesterday so F and I went by after a late lunch. Sometimes my local used bookstore does not have a great selection, but this time there was so much to choose from I had to leave several books I really wanted behind. All F. could do was shake his head each time he came by the aisle I was browsing in. The pile in my arms was bigger each time he saw me. He knows once I have my heart set on my stack that there is no going back or trying to convince me that I don't need to buy so many since I have stacks of unread books at home. Alas, I always win (particularly when I point out how expensive his hobby can be, hehe). Without further ado, here is what I took home:

The Kitchen Boy: A Novel of the Last Tsar by Robert Alexander
Been Down so Long It Looks Like Up to Me by Richard Farina
Slam by Nick Hornby
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan
Revolutionary Road by Ricard Yates
The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy
The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman
The Reader by Bernhard Schlink

It was hard to put some of the other books I had selected back on their shelves, but I decided not to be greedy.
