On to what I was actually going to post about! We went garage-saleing today, and do you know what that means? Obviously it means that I got some new (to me) books! Would you like to see them? Because I am going to show you them!
I always loved these books! They never end well (they always end the same way that the history did, so most of the time, it's not the happiest ending ever), but I love to read them anyways. This is in perfect condition, and I've read it before, and from what I remember, it was a good one!
I think each book worked out to being a dollar.
The Tragedies of William Shakespeare
You can't see it, because the spine wouldn't photograph, but it is beautiful! It has that gold coloured inlay that old books sometimes have, and it is so cool! I looked inside it after I bought it, and it was printed in December of 1913. I was a little bit upset to see one of those 'This book belongs to" stickers on the inside of the front cover, just because it's such a cool old book, but I don't plan on selling it, so it really doesn't matter. It will just silently mock me saying "You can't remove me without damage to the book! Ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha!" Oh well. I'll just ignore it. Oh! The Tragedies that are included are:
Troilus and Cressida
The Tragedy of Coriolanus
The Tragedy of Titus Andronicus
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet
The Life of Timon of Athens
The Tragedy of Julius Caesar
The Tragedy of Macbeth
The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark
The Tragedy of King Lear
The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice
Antony and Cleopatra
Pericles, Prince of Tyre
Those are in the order that they were in the Table of Contents.
The Message in the Sand Dunes : A Kay Tracey Mystery by Frances K. Judd
I got this because I like the older books with the paintings on their covers that are sort of Nancy Drew-esque. I maintain that Cherry Ames is still way better than Nancy Drew (Always have, and always will), but that's beside the point here. This is also in near perfect condition, and I'm looking forward to reading it.
Awake and Dreaming by Kit Pearson
I adore Kit Pearson's writing style, so when I saw one I haven't read yet, I needed to get it. I highly reccomend her book 'The Sky is Falling' for young girls. And older girls too, come to think of it. And I'm sure guys would like it, too. I'm getting off topic, but, yeah, you should look that up. Also, this is where the pictures will be better, because I figured out to use the museum mode on my camera.
