Yesterday, I popped into one of my favourite thrift shops yesterday after going to the post office. A little while ago they moved their book section about a bit and expanded it, I love searching through the shelves and shelves of them because you can always find something interesting. It honestly makes my day when I find books I was already thinking of buying for super cheap prices.

Clockwise from top left: The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, Atonement by Ian McEwan, Hell or High Water by Paul Martin, and Trudeau Albums by various authors.

Two novels and two political books for $10. Day made.

I've been reading Edie: American Girl by Jean Stein, I'm almost finished it but I haven't decided which I'll start reading next yet. What good books have you read lately?



  1. I need to start looking at thrift stores for books! Book store books are so pricey

  2. I love Atonement! I orginally bought that version but found out it's a movie tie-in. They changed it to be more like the film. Strange, but awesome it's so cheap!

  3. The Lovely Bones is one of the best books I've ever read. I'm reading The Girl Who Played With Fire at the moment. Soooooo gooooood.

  4. Absolutely LOVE Lovely bones. Read the book when I was younger and years later the movie came out so of course I saw it. They were both great.

  5. I haven't read The Lovely Bones yet, but I've seen the film and it had me on the edge of my seat at some part! I love second hand books - there's nothing quite like them :)

  6. Last year I stopped in at a Goodwill downtown and I found that their whole second story is nothing but books! I was amazed at their selection and the book quality was astounding.

    To put it in a nutshell: The whole Harry Potter collection HARD COVER, all 3 Eragon books (hardcover), 3 recipe books (hardcover) and two paperback books I had been looking for.

    Got them all for 35 bucks. It was a splurge, I know, but I couldn't pass the opportunity up.

    Learn to love your local thrift shops/Goodwills, my friends.

  7. I'm currently reading Atonement !
