Found: Book Treasures

October 5, 2010

We recently took a trip to Half Price Books in search of our next book club title, Killer Angels by Michael Shaara. However, as all bibliophiles know, it’s almost impossible to come out of that store with only one book. I can only imagine the constant temptation working there would be.

In addition to our intended purchase, Jeff bought a nice hardback copy of Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising, and I was thrilled to find the 1950 editions of Winnie the Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner.

Can you believe these lovely old books were only $5 each? Now the binding has seen better days, a previous owner’s name is written inside each cover, and Winnie has a tiny bit of coloring on the inside, but still.

I love that silly old bear.

    Apparently, your mom and I need to make a trip out that way to a certain used book store! Perhaps a spring trip?

    Love the Pooh books! I’m a bit jealous!

    Oh, it’s totally impossible to come out of a bookstore with just one book — I’m with you there! Those “Winnie The Pooh” editions look great.
