Found a nice hardback 1st printing of James Patterson's 'The Day America Told The Truth', a non-fiction book he co-wrote and published in 1991 with Peter Kim. They sent out surveys to top executives across the country asking them about different things pertaining to their jobs and also their personal lives. Interesting stuff, some of it quite shocking!

A Goodwill near my house has Salem's Lot, Dolores Claiborne, Bag of Bones and a few others. I'm saving up money to go back for them (yes--I am so broke I have to save money to shop at thrift stores).
Oh, hon, I've been there myself with the no $$ thingy! There were times in my past where I had to choose between buying some more groceries or buying a new book. I'll let you guess which one usually won out....

I don't know why I do this to myself, I already have stacks of books I still have to read on my desk. I just couldn't help myself.

Sigh.

Anyway, I bought The Road by Cormac McCarthy, Primitive People By Francine Prose, Blood From a Stone by Donna Leon, Crying Wolf by Peter Abrahams, The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje and The Reader by Bernhard Schlink.

I have a box of about a dozen duplicate Stephen King novels of various titles (hardcovers and paperbacks in varying conditions) collecting dust and just looking for a good home if you want them.

Alright everyone, I am looking at what i think is a book club edition of Christine...however the only thing that makes me say that is that it's missing the dust cover price and the edition numbers on the inside front flap...two characteristics of a genuine first edition from what i have read...other than that I believe it is "full size" retail..price either way for me is $5!
