The Magic Mountain | Thomas Mann
post image

Today‘s finds at the used bookstore. Most of these were on the clearance shelf. 📚📚 #usedbooks #nosuchthingastoomanybooks

Lcsmcat I tried Magic Mountain a couple decades ago and couldn‘t get into it. Have you read it yet? I feel like I should give it another chance and maybe a buddy read is the way to doit. 7mo
SharonGoforth @Lcsmcat No, I haven‘t read it yet. I‘m willing to try it as a buddy read this summer if you‘d like. 7mo
Lcsmcat Sure. Discussing it with someone would be the nudge I need to try it again. 😀 7mo

Artemisia | Anna Banti
post image

Afternoon adventure to a delightful, new-to-me used bookstore/coffee shop! The inset photo shows the books I bought. The hardbacks are in excellent condition! 📚☕️. In addition to the tagged book, I bought A Column of Fire by Ken Follett and Caesar by Colleen McCullough. #nosuchthingastoomanybooks

Severnmeadows I‘m going to read Artemisia. I‘ve been interested in her life and her paintings ever since reading about her in Germaine Greer‘s Obstacle Race. (edited) 7mo
SharonGoforth @Severnmeadows Awesome! I‘m hoping to get to it soon. 7mo

From Half Price Books! The Ralph Ellison by itself would have made the trip worth it! It is a huge book, and would have been his second novel, had he finished it before he died. He spent about 40 years on it. It is a Modern Library edition, and has been heavily annotated by its previous owner. Love it! 💕❤️ #nosuchthingastoomanybooks

I went to the library today to pick up two books on hold (the Timothy Egans) and came home with five, as you do. 📚. #nosuchthingastoomanybooks #libraryhaul #fromthelibrary

Gingerbread: A Novel | Helen Oyeyemi
post image

My favorite independent bookstore (Joseph-Beth) also had a coupon today, so of course I had to visit. I had Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi in my hands, and a helpful bookseller then highly recommended Mr. Fox, so of course it came home with me, too! 🦊. #nosuchthingastoomanybooks #bookhaul #josephbethbooksellers

Karkar I love Joseph Beth. I picked up way too many the other day because of the coupon. 🤓😊 9mo
SharonGoforth @Karkar 😊👍! I would have bought more, but I pretty much spent all my money! 9mo

Happy St. Patrick‘s Day! I took advantage of a Half Price Books coupon and came away with an almost all-Irish haul. I‘m currently listening to Say Nothing on audio, and it is so good and so compelling that I needed to have a copy of the physical book as well. Part 2 to follow! 🍀📚📚🍀 #nosuchthingastoomanybooks #bookhaul #halfpricebooks

Theaelizabet I was riveted by Say Nothing. Glad to hear it works on audio, too. 9mo
SharonGoforth @Theaelizabet Yes, the narrator is excellent. I totally agree with you-the book is riveting. 9mo
LeahBergen I recently bought The Trial of Lizzie Borden, too. 👍🏻 9mo

SharonGoforth @LeahBergen I‘ve been fascinated by and reading books about Lizzie Borden since I was a teenager (and that‘s been a long time ago)! Not sure what else can be said about the case, but I can‘t wait to read it and find out! 9mo
Megabooks Are you in Lexington? Did I know that? I used to love going to Joseph Beth in high school! I‘m from W. Kentucky. 9mo
SharonGoforth @Megabooks No, I‘m in Ohio and go to the store in Cincinnati. 9mo

Patrick Melrose by Edward St. Aubyn (5 book omnibus)
Dissolution by CJ Sansom
Dark Fire by CJ Sansom
