Before August wrapped up, I visited ‘Half Price Books’ for the first time. I’ve always heard many positive things about this affordable bookshop, but there are none over in New Jersey. When my husband and I traveled to Pittsburgh a couple weeks ago, we happened to see a couple ‘Half Price Books’ locations in the area. We immediately made it a mission to check it out!
‘Half Price Books’ was filled with endless rows of books from every genre. They sell music as well, but they are well known for selling books are very reasonable prices. They also buy back books from the general public.
I went to search for the first book in Laurell K. Hamilton’s Merry Gentry series, ‘A Kiss of Shadows’, but I couldn’t locate it. I still managed to walk away with (just!) two books, because…books! Believe me, I wanted to leave witb sooo much more, but I do have a budget to maintain!
Here are the books I picked up at Half Price Books:
When ‘Little Bee’ first came out, I went to hear Chris Cleave speak at the Union Square Barnes & Noble. It was such a fun talk, but I haven’t gotten around to purchase his novel until now!
This book holds sixteen thought-provoking short stories that involves the social dynamic of race, class and sexuality in everyday life.
