The book sale was splendid. I went through over 20 tables of books (according to my best guesstimate) and that was only about half of them. It's like extra oxygen. You can breathe so much better when you know there are friends just waiting to be found. ;) The Lord blessed abundantly and I think this may have been one of my best years yet.

Here I am exclaiming over my treasures:
And in case you aren't able to view the video, here are a list of the titles I picked up:
1. The Crown and the Crucible, by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella (book 1 of the Russians series)
2. The House of the Four Winds, by John Buchan (one of the Dickson McCunn novels.)
3. The Color of Your Skin Ain't the Color of Your Heart, by Michael Phillips (book 3 of the Shenandoah Sisters series)
4. The Chosen, by Chaim Potok
5. The Fellowship of the Ring, by J.R.R. Tolkien
6. The Return of the King, by J.R.R. Tolkien
7. Phineas Finn, by Anthony Trollope
8.The Parish Papers, by George MacDonald (containing three novels in one volume: A Quiet Neighborhood/The Seaboard Parish/The Vicar's Daughter)
9. Rob Roy and selected poems, by Sir Walter Scott
10. The Prince and the Pauper, by Mark Twain
11. Oliver Twist, by Charles Dickens
12. A Trilogy, by Thyra Ferre Bjorn (containing Papa's Wife, Papa's Daughter, and Mama's Way)
13. Miss Clare Remembers, by Miss Reed
14. A Child's History of England, by Charles Dickens
As an interesting side note, I just found out that a book I bought at this book sale two years ago, Ben Hur by Lew Wallace, has more value than at first appeared. I own (according to my best research) the 1887 second printing edition, and it's in nearly perfect shape. That's rather exciting, and I think Ben Hur will be moving to my collector's shelf. :) It's probably the oldest book I own to date.
A lot of these books I bought that I actually haven't read yet. If you have, I should dearly love to know which ones you think are the best to start with!
