I don't generally go to many book sales, maybe because I don't hear of them, but I did attend one this morning. I was not one of the first in line as I was taking my daughter to swim class.It sounds like it was a good thing as it was a madhouse. I'm not sure how many books a 'big' sale would consist of, this one advertised 6000 and I wouldn't consider it big. For my $16.25 I bought:
Elizabeth and her German Garden by Elizabeth von Arnim - this is the only VMC I found
Cranford/Cousin Phillis by Elizabeth Gaskell- I own Cranford so bought this for Cousin Phillis
Parallel Lives- Five Victorian Marriages by Phyllis Rose - I know I heard of this somewhere lately.
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie - I've never read her. Please don't throw anything at me.
Several Barbara Pym - Crampton Hodnet, No Fond Return of Love, and one volume containing Excellent Women (I already own), Jane and Prudence and An Unsuitable Attachment
Also a handful of children's books, favorites look to be Field Guide to N. American Birds, a program from a Disney on Ice production of Snow White (??), and Safari which is a book about Africa published by National Geographic Society and has great photographs.
Lots of fun and we're happy to give new life to these old books.
