Musing Mondays (May 3)

Musing Mondays2 Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about the war books

Do you frequent second hand book stores? Have you ever bought a book home only to find anything interesting within their pages?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.

 

I’ll confess, I’m asking this question, purely so I can share this story. It made my week and I just wanted to tell you all.

About a year ago, a friend and I went into the city and did the Town Hall book shops – Kinokuniya, Galaxy Books, Kings Comics, and Elizabeth’s Bookshop. It was a great day and I was very happy to come home with my little pile of finds. Among them was a copy of Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things which I’ve been reading on and off ever since (I like to make short stories last).

This week, I was flipping through it trying to find something for my brother when I found … this:

Left Behind

Absolutely the best second-hand book find ever! Especially since I only paid $10 for the book in the first place!

I've never been that lucky with a used book! Though of course, now when I get home I'm going to have to flip through every used book I just bought but haven't read yet!

You can find my answer on my blog,

Used books, cheap used books, are a terrible temptation... ;-)

I only buy second hand books pretty much. My favourite second hand book shops are the one;s on King Street in Newtown. Elizabeths and Books on King. Gould's is good too, except that I find that there are so many books there and the aisles are so narrow that it's a bit off putting. Basement Books under Central is pretty good too.

I love second hand book stores. Unfortunately, one used book I recently picked up had some woman's naked picture in it. I shredded it, but she is lucky I am not a crazy person who posts crap on the Internet. And it was a Heyer book, of all things. Certainly not dirty enough for a nudie pic :)

Congrats on your found money.
