Aquisitions: Friends of the Library Book Sale

It was the last one of the year. I skipped in with a crisp $10 bill to spend. I left with a stack of books and $2 in crumpled ones.

Here is what I purchased:

Beastly Inventions: A Surprising Investigation into Just How Smart Animals Really Are by Jean Craighead George

No Holly for Miss Quinn by Miss Read

Gossip from Thrush Green by Miss Read

Savy by Ingrid Law

The Great Omission by Dallas Willard

Olive's Ocean by Kevin Henkes

Ship Fever and Other Stories by Andres Barrett

The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke

M.C. Higgins, the Great by Virginia Hamilton

The Moorchild by Eloise McGraw

I also purchased another copy of The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis and a copy of Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. The Lewis is for my Give-Away Pile and the Levine is a Christmas gift from my little sister. A fine haul, if I do say so myself.
