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.
