More Book Loot
These are the books I've picked up secondhand in the past few weeks. All were just a couple of bucks except for the Star Wars one, and that's okay, because that's one I've wanted a copy of for a while. I borrowed it from the library in Balbriggan the first time I read it.
Of these, the Handmaid's Tale and Neuromancer come from the Hugo winners' list. McCaffrey of course was a winner with other titles, and I am getting to like her work a lot so I was pleased to find this one. The Time Traveller's Wife and the Whale Rider could possibly be seen as part of my genre in the widest sense; and the Austen, McCall and Binchy are just plain delightful and very good for my language development.
