As part of my continual clean-up process of all things book related, I have been ordering used copies of some of the older books I have on my wishlist in an effort to get my wishlist more current. I add an awful lot of books to my wishlist, a lot of books recommended from other bloggers, some that I find when searching other books, some that are special deals. Whatever the source, I am making an effort to not buy everything I have on my wishlist which means I have become a little more critical when reading samples. I really am trying to curtail the book buying somewhat.
I don't feel as guilty when I am buying something used, but I gotta say that what I consider to be a Very Good rating and what some of these used book dealers consider to be Very Good are not even in the same stratosphere. I guess that is the risk when you're buying used. I used to be one of those people that had to look at every copy on the shelf and pick the best one. Since I no longer work in a book store and can't always be picky, I have learned to adapt, but come on people. A book with a crease down the entire front cover is not a Very Good rating! But I digress...
Anyway, here is my cache for the past three weeks.
