Local Library Sale, Part 1

New novels for my home library.
Every year there's a huge tent erected in the side yard of the library and thousands of books pour in from donors, discards, and parts unknown. It's the highlight of our summer and provides a huge portion of  my summer reading list.

I scaled back a bit this year, but managed to snag some fabulous books:

Airborn, by Kenneth Oppel. This has been on my to read list For. Ever. Just tell me . . . why did I wait so long? Treasure Island meets Leviathan. A+

So B. It, by Sarah Weeks. Finally a book which meets (exceeds) it's hype. Even better than When You Reach Me, by Rebecca Stead. And have a box of tissues handy.

Under the Greenwood Tree, by Thomas Hardy. Have you seen the entertaining adaptation with Keeley Hawes?
