Friday Buys 12/20-27/10

Finds For Friday is my new weekly meme! :)
Here's what I got this week:
  • The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins (Anthropologie, Penguin Classics, Hardcover 2009, brand new $15.00)     Yes, I did it!  I went ahead and bought it...  And I love it.  It looks beautiful on my shelf.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!
  • Kim by Rudyard Kipling  (Friends of the Library Escondido, Barnes and Noble Classics; read but in perfect condition;  $1.00)   I've been eyeing Kim for quite some time now...  I've never read anything of Kipling's before so this will be a new experience when I pick it up!
  • Emma by Jane Austen  (Friends of the Library Escondido, Barnes and Noble Classics, used but in perfect condition;  $1.00)   I already own Emma in a hardcover copy (Barnes and Noble) so a friend got this copy.  I just thought it was too good of a deal to pass up.
  • Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray   (Barnes and Noble, brand new; $7.95)   This one looks really good!  I've seen it randomly and always wondered about it; I'd heard it was good.  This time I finally picked it up and did some quick research.  I'm glad I bought it;  it definitely seems like a novel worth my time.  (I love my giftcards!  haha!)  Hope it lives up to my expectations!
  • The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton   (Barnes and Noble, brand new;  $5.95)    I've heard Edith Wharton was amazing;  I read about this one and was really intrigued by the story line.
  • Daniel Deronda by George Eliot  (Barnes and Noble, brand new;  $8.95)   I just watched the BBC movie of this the other day and was really fascinated by it.  All of George Eliot's books seem really amazing.

And these are the books I got for Christmas!!!!
  • Dracula by Bram Stoker
  • The Robe by Lloyd C. Douglas
  • Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Now that I know what I got for Christmas, I know what books I can order to use up the rest of my giftcards.  In fact, I just made a little order...but I'm not telling what I got just yet! :P  I should be getting it in at the end of next week, or early the week after, along with another package that I am also very excited about!
Until my next post, happy reading! :D
