New Acquisitions from the Thrift Store

Since the Borders in my hometown closed a few years back, and all of the smaller bookstores slowly closed up shop as well, I do most of my book buying at the local thrift store (the nearest B&N is 16 miles away). This weekend I went there with my mom and found some great books. The best part? I didn’t pay more than $3 for any of them! I am lucky that a thrift store in my area carries a LOT of books. I’ve wanted copies of a few of them for awhile, and others I’d never even heard of – that’s the fun of book shopping!

See if you can guess which are which :-)
