Bookarama Haul 2013

The Rotary club here hold a massive booksale every year. It's amazing. For about a month before you can donate books and then for a week you can walk around a hall filled with hundreds of thousands of second hand books, pick out a haul and know that your donating to good charities. Every year we clean out our bookshelf to donate, then go and buy some back to fill it up again. Here's my haul from this year.

Bookarama Haul 2013Elephants Don't Sit on Cars, David Henry Wilson


Beside the Sea with Jeremy James, David Henry Wilson


The Borrowers Afield, Mary Norton


Paddington on Top, Michael Bond


The Uncommon Reader, Alan Bennett


The Blind Assassin, Margaret Atwood


The Aeneid, Virgil


The Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas


Little Women, Louisa May Alcott


The Pilgrims Progress, John Bunyan



I think I did particularly well in the children's section this year, I've been looking for some of David Henry Wilson's Jeremy James series in print for YEARS. The Three Musketeers and Little Women are both on my Classics Club list, so it's nice to pick them up in print. The Pilgrims Progress I actually already owned, but it was extremely battered and hubby and I are collecting classics with this particular binding. His haul included Westward Ho! in the same binding, which brings our total up to six (they aren't hard to find, but they're hard to find in good condition).
