As many of you may know, I am no longer a New Yorker, so please check out my new blog A Library of My Own. If you are just reading Life and Times, you are missing out. Thanks!

Housing Works Booksale

One of the great things I've found with using Twitter is that I get good updates regarding some of the bookstores and events in the City. I follow @HousingWorksBks and they mentioned a book fair going on this past weekend. My husband had to work so I tromped on down to the book sale alone. I seriously carried these ten books all over the City. What a workout! It was worth it though. 10 books for 10 bucks and I bought a tote. 1. Three Junes - Julia Glass
2. The Boleyn Inheritance - Philippa Gregory
3. The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana - Umberto Eco
4. Special Topics in Calamity Physics - Marisha Pessl
5. Cross Country - Robert Sullivan

6. The Lady and the Unicorn - Tracy Chavalier
7. The Five Forty-Five to Cannes - Tess Uriza Holthe
8. Anthropology of an American Girl - Hilary Thayer Hamann
9. Labyrinth - Kate Mosse
10. The Queen of Subtleties - Suzannah Dunn

Now I just need to find more room in our tiny apartment to house all my loot.

For past Housing Works posts: June 2009 Loot and June 2009 Post


  1. I wish we had book sales like that over here. I have Labyrinth too, but I keep being put off my the size of it.

  2. This post makes me want to join twitter, but I really don't want one more thing to keep tabs on.

  3. Exciting stuff! Look at all those books.

  4. Great haul! I especially like the "Calamity Physics" one -- that sounds like the sort of thing that happens all the time over at Dennis's blog ...

  5. NICE!!! I'm going to a library sale tomorrow and I hope I make out like you did!
