Book Hoarders Anonymous

As some of you may know I went on a tiny vacation to Ithaca this weekend. I had planned on seeing some gorges, waterfalls and quirky downtown shops. What I did not anticipate was the absolute jackpot that Ithaca is in relation to bookstores! I could hardly fathom the amount of used book stores in the area and I just happened to show up on the last weekend of the HUGE Friends of the Library book sale. It was fate, I tell ya! Let’s check out my finds from the weekend…Please excuse the quality of these pictures. The bed & breakfast where we are staying is a legit log cabin and totes reminds me of:“I have to go! There’s a deer just outside, eating fruit from the orchard!” – Ross Gellar 
It’s GORGEOUS here, but the lighting is not the best!

Many of you know that I collect Wizard of Oz books so I was almost hyperventilating when I saw this bundle at The Friends of the Library Booksale!! With the exception of The Scarecrow of Oz which I found from another used bookstore these were all purchased for 10 cents EACH!!! AHHH!!

The Shakespeare’s Daughter and Shakespeare in the Movies were a dollar each and I thought they would go nicely with my ever growing collection of Shakespearean literature. Fairest number 1 and 2 by Bill Willingham came from the most well stocked and organized comic book store I have ever seen! No Go the Boogeyman was an awesome find, a hardcover for just $2.00 is not too shabby! Finally, I picked up Outlander by Diana Gabaldon for just 25 cents. Just in time for the read-a-long!

I am hoping that upon returning home my copy of Wintercraft: Legacy will be in my mailbox but there is no telling as Amazon UK stated Wednesday as the delivery date and ALAS! Still no sign!

What fun books did you grab this week?
