The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Michael Chabon
Mary, Mrs. A. Lincoln by Janis Cooke Newman
The Alienist by Caleb Carr
The Treasure of Montségur by Sophy Burnham
Forever by Pete Hamill (I've already read this one, but it's one of my favorites and I didn't have my own copy)
Mozart's Sister by Rita Charbonnier
Lady MacBeth by Susan Fraser King
The Pale Blue Eye by Louis Bayard
North River by Pete Hamill
Plus a 125th anniversary edition of Barlett's Quotations and a Digimon VHS tape, all for a whopping grand total of $11 (and seven of the nine novels are hardbacks). I do feel guilty cheating authors out of their royalties, but I can't pass up such bargains. All but Chabon and Hamill are new authors to me, so buying these used editions might inspire me to splurge full price on some their newer works.
Now, if only I could find time to read. I still have huge piles of unread purchases from the last few sales! Any recommendations on what should be at the top of the list?
(On a side note, I was flabbergasted, as always, by the number of John Grisham hardbacks on the sale tables. It's amazing how many people buy his novels new in hardback.)
