Recent Acquisitions

I forgot to list my recent acquisitions, especially from the Prince Edward County Library Branch book sale in Bloomfield, Ontario. Four paperbacks for a dollar. I got a copy of Starring Sally J Freedman as Herself by Judy Blume, which is one of my favourite books ever. I have owned a variety of copies but they always seem to go missing, so I intend to keep my mitts on this one. It’s a fabulous story; a children’s book that reads just as interestingly for an adult, and very differently. There is a lot of depth to it. It is also remarkably similar to Ann Marie McDonald’s The Way the Crow Flies, which I read around the same time. I also got As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner, which I’ve never read, and two Anne Tyler novels. Further, my copy of The Walrus arrived in the mail yesterday. And I think I am going to purchase Writing Life: Celebrated Canadian and International Authors on Writing and Life, the new PEN Collection.
