Over the weekend, Don and I went to a book sale at one of the local libraries. I've mentioned before that, in the process of moving in with him, I donated almost 200 books to the library that I work at. There simply wasn't room for all of them where we're currently living. When I finally agreed with his suggestion that I start blogging again, I told him one very important thing: "If I start buying books again, it's all your fault." I can't blog without books to read and most of what's on my shelf is books that I've already read (although I'll admit that most of them were read long ago and that I haven't reviewed very many of them for this blog). I bought quite a lot of books at the sale on Friday but he can't say that I didn't warn him.
So, what did I get at the book sale (i.e., what can you expect me to eventually review)?
