Book Hunting Expeditions NYRB Reading Life

[BHE 387] Book Hunting In The US of A (Part 3): Goodwill (Book) Hunting and NYRB 24-Hour Book Haul

NYRB Classics 20th Anniversary Sale 2019!


Myra here.

So we went Goodwill-Hunting while we were in California. Goodwill does not only sell bargain-priced clothing, they also have pretty good book selections at 2.99 for hard covers, 1.99 for paperbacks, and 99 cents for children’s titles. I was able to find a few treasures as you can see here.

Goodwill Book Hunting

This Goodwill has one of the biggest selections of books across the many Goodwill we visited. And I did manage to score these titles:

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty (Book Depository | Amazon),

The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty (Book Depository | Amazon).

Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi (Book Depository | Amazon),

Ammonites & Leaping Fish: A Life In Time by Penelope Lively (Book Depository | Amazon).

70% Acrylic 30% Wool by Viola Di Grado (Book Depository | Amazon),

Felicity by Mary Oliver (Book Depository | Amazon) – this is the book that made me jump up and down and flail my arms.

NYRB 24 Hour Summer Book Sale

I was so thrilled when I got this email while my family and I were still in the US. I was really looking forward to this sale, and it was perfect timing as I had the books shipped to my sister in law’s place in the US where we were staying in July. Here’s my book haul.

Pretending Is Lying by Dominique Goblet (Book Depository | Amazon),

Family Lexicon by Natalia Ginzburg (Book Depository | Amazon).

Seduction And Betrayal by Elizabeth Hardwick (Book Depository | Amazon),
