Lucy, you got some readin' to do!

A recent trip to the Friends of the Library yielded these fab finds...

  1. The First Time: Cher as told to Jeff Coplon. A compilation of first times i.e. first time meeting her real father, first public performance, etc. Lots of great photos! I love Cher!
  2. Mrs. Dalloway: Virginia Woolf. details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway in post-World War I England.
  3. Do It! Let's Get Off Our Buts: Peter McWilliams. You can probably guess what this self help book is all about, get off our buts and butts!
  4. The Year of Magical Thinking: Joan Didion. The author explores the portrait of a marriage in good times and bad.
  5. Epilogue: Anne Rolphe. Anne is not quite 70 when her husband of nearly 40 years unexpectedly passes away. This is a jouney into the unknown world of life after love.
  6. The Thrifty Decorator: Jocasta Innes. Lots of great DIY projects
  7. Living Well: Edited by Carrie Donovan. A collection of noteworth spaces singled out by The NY Times' editors, reporters, critics and contributors.

Looks like the gato and I have a lot of interesting reading ahead of us!

Hope you have an interesting week!


  1. You've got yourself a mix of everything here. I am interested to see what you think of Mrs. Dalloway!

  2. I love friends of the library sales! Happy reading :)

  3. I love friends of the library sales! In fact, I love friends of the library. I also love sushi. Did your movie selection go well with the sushi? Or, vice versa?


  4. Cool selections.
    I have that 'Do It!' book. It's great!

  5. We have a Friends of the Library store too. I love it. I also like searching for cheap books at Garage Sales. Enjoy your finds!
