Ordered Peace Like A River by Leif Enger
Excellent condition, somewhat dated: 15th Edition, 1988, for $50
Full simulated-leather binding, gilt-edged pages, dark blue, and a pleasure to look at -- and use.
OOPS, correction. The Britannica was $15.
(The $50 was for a different bargain that I found -- a used Toshiba laptop in like-new condition with fully functional rechargeable battery.)
The Evolution of God by Robert Wright.
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
Scoundrel Time by Lillian Hellman
Beauty's Punishment by Anne Rice/Rampling
Lovely hardcover (my fourth copy of this book).
Grimm Reapings by R. Patrick Gates
The sequel to Grimm Memorials.
Nine & a Half Weeks by Elizabeth McNeill
I saw the movie for the very first time a week or two ago. It's so dated and there was definitely some holding back. I was so curious about the story behind it all, so I'm so glad I found this book.
Got all 3 books in almost new condition for a total of about $18. yay!
That's a nice haul!
I finally ordered the cookbook that Abc told me about long ago called Best Of Mennonite Fellowship Meals by Phyllis P Good.
Thank you, Abc, for the recommendation.
