Friday Buys 7/22/11 - 8/26/11

Phew!  So, a month has gone by without a Friday Buys, and I figured it was about time.  The pile has stacked up for so long, higher and higher, that I needed to put the books in their proper places.  So, here is my Friday Buys (sorry the pictures are so dark...):

Cloaked by Alex Flinn
Won this one in a giveaway!  Loved this book!

Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George - $8.00
Great book!  Finally got the paperback and I love seeing it on my shelf. :)   (Title leads to review.)

The Iliad by Homer - $3.50
My favorite of the two (Iliad and Odyssey).  I lent out my previous copy and never got it back...decided it was time for a new one!

Rip Tide by Kat Falls - $11.00
LOVED THIS BOOK!  I loved Dark Life and now this one.  Read read read!

Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor - $.50
I know, I know, it's the second book and I haven't even read the first.  Well, it was only two quarters...I couldn't pass it up!

The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James - $.50
I'm a huge fan of the Classics but I haven't had much time recently to read them.  I told myself I wasn't going to buy any more, but this one was also two quarters. ;)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling -$1.00
I finally found it in great condition in hardcover!  I said I wanted the dust jacket, but this was a good deal.  If I find one with a dust jacket, I'll replace this one.  But for now, I'm happy. :)  now I just need to find Deathly Hallows and I'll have them all!

The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer - $.50
I now have up to book 3! :)

The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan - $.50
In reality this one was free because I traded for it, but the store charged me for tax and handling.  (Title leads to review.)

East by Edith Pattou - $.50
Also at the exchange store.  Super excited to read this one!!

Fablehaven by Brandon Mull - $.50
Traded at that same store.  I've heard good things about this book...we shall see...

May Bird and the Ever After by Jodi Lynn Anderson - $.50
Another from the trade store.  I'm interested in this one...  My 14-year-old started it and put it down because she just wasn't interested.  I wonder how I'll like it.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott - $8.00
1940's!!!  Isn't it gorgeous???  I just LOVE it.  More pictures below...  I'm so happy it's on my shelf with all my vintage books! :)

What did you all get these last few weeks?  Show your links in the comments so I can see! :)


  1. SO jealous of your Little Women! I have a couple old ones, but that's gorgeous :oD

    East = Amazing. Seriously *amazing*...One of my favorite books.

  2. Fablehaven - great series. I wish I could find a copy of East for 50 cents...

  3. Great books! I'm so curious to see what you think of East. I haven't read any of the retellings for that tale and I'm not sure where to start. I'm leaning toward Jessica Day George's version just because I like her.
