Notes from the Now

Haul from HP Booksale

In Uncategorized on October 14, 2009 at 9:13 pm

Even though I’m supposedly limiting my book purchases to what I can trade for at swaptree, I couldn’t resist stopping by the Hyde Park Book Sale over the weekend.

I spent $5.50! Here’s my haul:

“The Plot Against America” Philip Roth (hardcover, great shape)
“Little Children” Tom Perrotta
“Reading Lolita in Tehran”
“Interpreter of Maladies” Jhumpa Lahiri (it’s nice to have an extra copy on hand to give away)
“Independence Day” by Richard Ford
“Free Burning” by Bayo Ojikutu
“Segu” by Maryse Conde
“Disturbing the Peace” by Vaclav Havel

  1. Read Ojikutu first – very good, and set on the South Side.

  2. I bought Ojikutu’s book because I remember you writing about him some time ago!

  3. […] Haul from HP Booksale — I did pretty well at a local booksale for $5.50. […]
