Thrift shop books

We went back to the "silver-lining thrift shop" today, and Mama Squirrel found a few more good books, mostly priced between twenty-five cents and a dollar:

Jan Karon, In This Mountain (hardcover with dj)
Jan Karon, A New Song (I keep finding copies of this and giving them away)
Rumer Godden, In This House of Brede, older hc with dj
Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Philip Yancey, Disappointment with God
Walter Wangerin Jr., Ragman and Other Cries of Faith, a really nice paperback copy (I had a feeling there might be another couple of Wangerin books there that I hadn't found last time)

101 Dalmatians, the real book by Dodie Smith
A Child's First Book of Poems, illustrated by Cindy Szekeres--1981 library discard
The Orphelines in the Enchanted Castle, by Natalie Savage Carlson--1964 library discard

Oh, 101 Dalmations is a good book. I remember getting that from a remainder table years ago. There is so much going on in the book that didn't make it into the movie.

Great finds!

Both of the books you found by Jan Karon are great books. She is my favorite author. I also enjoy her website at Visit the site. I think you will enjoy it!
