Had a productive weekend at the thrift stores. Here's my finds:
View attachment 27341
The Cal Ripkin, Jr. book is autographed and also came with a special baseball card. I'm giving this to my best friend's husband as Cal is his childhood idol. The Colin Powell book has an autographed sticker on the first page. I also found an unopened director's cut dvd of Amadeus, which I watched the other night. Sad movie.
OOOOh wish I could find a copy of that Secret Windows book! - lucky you :thumbs_up:

Came home with this treasure on Saturday from Goodwill. It's not a first printing but it is signed by the author and also Octavia Spencer, who won the Oscar for Supporting Actress for her role in the movie based on this book. I never knew that the author wrote the part of 'Minnie' with Octavia in mind. Whoever Grace and Anna are it's their loss and my gain! :D
