Today I went to a new used bookstore I found in Walker, MI and they had a very impressive selection and very reasonable prices.  Now hubby is really going to kill me because after ordering from bookcloseouts last night today at this place I got

Queen in Waiting, The Third George, The Princess of Celle, The Red Rose of Anjou, Passage to Ponterfact, The Vow on the Heron and A Health Unto His Majesty (all by Jean Plaidy)

and

The Reckoning by Sharon Kay Penman, The Dragon Revenant by Katherine Kerr and Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf.  The cost for these 10 wonderful books? $23!

I feel like I just came back from Disneyland!

Wow, I can't believe you found Plaidy's Red Rose of Anjou there. That's a lucky find! Yeah, I'd say you had a great day of shopping!

I went the UBS at the library and got: Tis by Frank McCourt, One Thousand White Women, London by Rutherford and Voyager by Diana Gabaldon.  The total cost for this haul - $1.75!
