Catch of the Day

Dropped by one of my favourite used book stores today. It seems that at this time of year lots of people are selling their books to lighten their load before moving time so there was plenty of selection. I had to take into account the 45 minute walk to get back to my place, so tried to keep the selection as light as possible—all things being relative of course:

The Age of Innocence, Edith Wharton
The Pillars of the Earth, Ken Follett
Nothing that Meets the Eye, Patricia Highsmith
The Golden Notebook, Doris Lessing
Du côté de chez swann, Proust
The Old Man and the Sea, Hemingway
The Road, Cormac McCarthy
Awakenings, Oliver Sacks

Finally, when I got back home, there was a book—Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote—waiting for me in the mail. Overall a pretty good catch I’d say.
