Book Sale Haul 06 Nov 2017

If you’re a fan of anything you quickly learn that prices at up. It doesn’t matter what your hobby is, the prices are always there. And in my case books add up. I love book sales. I use Book sale finder to find book sale everywhere I go in the US.  My favorite though are the ones based within the local libraries, because they can keep the profit they make of the donated books to keep them up and running.  So today’s sale came courtesy of Middletown Public Library. This is not the 1st time I’ve been to one of their sales it’s actually my third time ( Please don’t tell my husband). He has no idea how far I’ll go for a good sale.

When I go into a book sale I try to plan it out so I take a few little people with me as possible. Today I had 2 little people with me today, with the promise of buying them books, an hour in the children’s nook area for play and McDonald’s for lunch, I managed to get 15 books for $18.

The focus of today’s book haul was to find book forms of movies adaptations in which I’ve watched but failed to read the book. It drives me insane when I watch a movie and then find out there is a book. I prefer to read the book prior to watching the film adaptation. So without further ado…


So as you can see I exceeded my goal, expecting to only come out with one or 2 books turned film I came out with much more. I also came out with some classics and a thesaurus (which I recently realized I needed).

Here’s the list of books( I know some of the titles are a bit hard to read).  Starting with the top left book.

I think I made out pretty good, given that the thesaurus alone cost $18 new, and I paid  $1.20 for it. When will I read these, I honestly don’t know, but maybe now that I have them in view it’ll remind me that they are on my TBR.
Happy Readings.

    1. Because of this comment, this will probably be the first one I read now. I’m so interested into finding out what made it different.


  1. In my humble opinion the book is always better than the movie with one exception maybe. I really struggled to read The Lord of the Rings. I must have tried three times and then just gave up. The original Samuel McChord Crothers books were a real find Cia, they’re becomming so rare


    1. I have never read the books or watched the movies….But I will agree that the books are always better than the movie. My exception would be The Spectacular Now, the book was just dreadful. I had no idea about the Crothers book, but I was so drawn to them, I could just leave them there.

  2. Gone girl and the tale of two cities have been on my list for a long time now. I need to find some time to give them a read. I love books and you clearly do too. Good haul!


  3. What a great book haul. I love books and do love collecting them. I have subscribed to all newsletters and notifications when there is a sale in my favorite bookstore. I am so with you when it comes to watching a movie based on a book, I love to read the book first and then watch the movie


  4. Wow, what a haul! Well done! And it sounds like a really positive and fun experience for the little ones too! I think you got a bargain, I don’t think I’d be able to walk in a shop here and buy as many books for the price equivilent!


  5. These are really interesting books. I Hope I will be able to read all of these in the future, but this “The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger” got my attention, looks great and will check this out.


  6. I love a good deal! “To Kill A Mockingbird” is one of my favorite books. “The Host” is really good. She was supposed to write more, but still hasn’t. “Gone Girl” is SO good. I also recommend her short story, “The Grownup”. I heard they were making that into a movie too.


  7. Sounds like you found some fun picks! I love reading new books and series in colder weather. I just need to carve out some time to read!


  8. Book sales are the best. Ours does .25 paperback, .50 hardback and we grab by the handfuls. Books are timeless, and we read them and pass them along!


    1. They are running the final day on saturday fill a bag for $5 lact time I walk out with over 50 books (including children’s books) $15
