Good Book Hunting: August 30, 2008

We walked to a yard sale yesterday; unfortunately, it was one of those where the sale items are jumbled into boxes for you to paw through. Even the four or five boxes of books. I got through two of them, but gave up in disgust. One cannot maintain control of one to two children while pawing through unsorted books whose vendor cannot even bother to put the spines facing up.

So I only bought three books and a DVD; that will teach them.

I got:

  • The Deal, a novel of Hollywood. Don’t know why.
  • Heat, a novel by Mike Lupica that I didn’t recognize.
  • A collection of short stories by Flannery O’Connor. I read the title story in college and remember it, but didn’t care for it. Maybe I will appreciate it now that I’m older. Or maybe it just sucks.
  • The Fast and the Furious on DVD. It was fifty cents. I’ve never seen it. Now, I will see it someday, but probably not soon.

Mrs. Noggle got a record which she can rip to MP3 format, probably sometime when they’re up to MP12 format.
