And, I'm not complaining one bit!

This weekend was the second third weekend of the Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale.

These books here cost $0.50 each!

I've been planning to get some Isaac Babel for some time now. If Raymond Carver thought highly of him, that's good enough for me. It looks like I snagged a reprint of a 1955 edition of Babel's collected stories.

The only publication date I see inside that copy of The Norton Anthology of Fiction is 1978, which theoretically makes that a first edition.

The funny thing is that I've got Fitzgerald's "Babylon Revisited," Hemingway's "Hills Like White Elephants," Kafka's "Metamorphosis," and Updike's "A&P" three times over with just the books I have in the picture!

Not a bad haul for $4. I got a couple of other miscellaneous books, too. True, I could've gone to Free Comic Book Day, but we had errands to run, too.

Actually, it was the third and final weekend of the book sale.
