I Love Half Price Books

A new Half Price Books opened near my house and I love it. Well, they actually relocated across the street but had a Grand Opening for their new location.

The goods:

The Enchantress of Florence - Salman Rushdie
Oryx and Crake - Margaret Atwood
The Woman Warrior - Maxine Hong Kingstong
The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing - Melissa Bank
The Book of Illusions - Paul Auster
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - Jean-Dominique Bauby
Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston


  1. I love Half Price Books! I've been going to the local store for about a year, ever since I moved to where I now live.. it's amazing. Such a great selection, and cheap. I've got some links to their websites and their partner website (deletecensorship.org) on my blog... and I see you picked up Their Eyes Were Watching God! That was one of the banned books I discussed in last week's Saturdays, Uncensored! poste. :)

  2. Great picks I must say.


  3. I'm jealous of your discount bookstore! Nice swag :)

  4. Oryx and Crake is great!!!! Can't wait to read what you think of it :-)

  5. Half-priced books are the best! I'm hanging out for a huuuge second-hand booksale that's on next weekend...can't wait! Cheap books ;-)

  6. A whole store dedicated to half price books - where do I go to find this magical place!?

  7. Roof Beam, Thanks for letting me know I'll check it out. I haven't read any Hurston ever and it's one of those things I know I should.

    Man, Thanks!

    Red, Yeah it's a pretty great store. Maybe there is one around you? Check their website listed below.

    Becky, I'm looking forward to it. I love Atwood.

    Booksploring, Good to know! I try never to buy full-priced. I read so much it gets too expensive!

    Reede, http://www.halfpricebooks.com/
    They have a lot of stores but they aren't in every state.

  8. I'm definitely going to look around for some discount stores. Hopefully I can load up on some new finds.

    There's an award for your on my blog!

  9. I'm jealous! :) Love that pile you purchased - some great reads in there. Looking forward to your reviews of them.

  10. Hi Brenna...just came across your blog; it's great! By the looks of this book stack, I think we have similar tastes in books. Enjoy them all.

  11. Great picks and I completely agree. Half Priced Books is so wonderful... though my husband and our sagging bookshelves might not agree with me.
