Library sale

Don’t have much to say on the reading front lately: have been busy with non-reading activities and also not feeling great.  But The Biochemist and I stopped in at the local branch library’s book sale over the weekend.  They had a fairly good selection of mass market paperbacks and a weird collection of older nonfiction and other media.  We each left with three books.

Evelina by Frances Burney — an 18th century sentimental novel, precursor to the work of Maria Edgeworth and Jane Austen.

A Game of Kings by Dorothy Dunnett — first of the Lymond books.  I’ve borrowed this from the library before but never actually read it.  The whole series was for sale, and at $0.50 would have been a bargain, but I didn’t feel like glomming without having read at least one book.

Chalice by Robin McKinley — I haven’t read anything of hers since Sunshine (which was also on sale in each of its incarnations/covers).

The Biochemist got a copy of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, and I can’t remember what else.

And that is all for SBD for now.
