Just returned from a booktrading trip. In addition to 37 books that I bought with store credit for my students to use (most of them YA titles, if you're that curious), I also bought 7 books, which are pictured above.
Here are four books that arrived during the past week. Hiromi Goto's Half World is quite excellent, as is Richard Parks' just-released third story collection. Needless to say, I'm happy to have received the Easton Press leatherbound edition of John Milton's classic poem, Paradise Lost. Oh, and Jamy Gordon's book isn't too shabby itself...
Now for some of the books I plan on trading in or giving away in the next week or so. I have read all of the books in these pictures.
For most of these works, it's just simply a matter of clearing much-needed space, as I would recommend virtually all of these works to someone or another, depending upon the situation.
Yeah, several tough choices indeed...
So, which books do you which you could own/read, if you had the chance?
