I went to the book sale at my town library and kicked some ass the other day.

I plan on going back, but my first excellent haul consists of the following:

 

Dreamcather-Stephen King

Atlas Shrugged-Ayn Rand

A Farewell To Arms- Ernest Hemingway

Nightfall-Isaac Asimov & Robert Silverberg

Drowned In Thunder (A Spiderman novel)-Chris Bennett

The Illustrated Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes-Arthur Conan Doyle

 

And finally, 18 Agatha Christie books, all of which have two stories in them.

All said and done, I spent $11.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

You paid money for Atlas Shrugged? On purpose?

 

Aside from that, great haul. Was the illustrated Sherlock Holmes a comic-style or simply the stories with olden-style illustrations?

I have never read Atlas Shrugged and figured it was worth 25 cents.

 

The Sherlock Holmes is the straight stories with old timey illustrations thrown in on random pages for effect.

I don't have a tonne of time these days to read either, which kills me a little every day.

There a finite amount of books that I can read before I die and every minute spent not devouring every story I can get my hands on feels like I am being robbed of something vital.
