I spent less than $10 overall and got a Rudyard Kipling hardcover anthology (including The Jungle Book stories), Kingsley's The Water Babies in hardcover, an old-fashioned King James edition of the Holy Bible complete with colour plates (gorgeous paintings) and a book prize inscription from a White Rock school in the early 60's. Lovely - I love old books!
I also got a hardcover Japanese book (with hiragana next to the kanji so kids/gaijin like me can read it!) called the Christmas Box, and 6 PG Wodehouse paperbacks . . . at 55 cents each, I felt as though I was stealing them! I usually buy them for $5 apiece in used bookstores!
|Nine dollars and change. I can't believe it, either!|
