My Book Haul

 This is two weeks worth of book purchases. The first pictured is the recently released Barnes and Noble leather bound collectible edition that I bought through Barnes and Noble two weeks ago. "The Complete Peter Rabbit"  by Beatrix Potter. This book is absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful. Blue leather, with gold gilt edging, a blue satin book mark, and full color illustrations. You can get your own copy here : Barnes and Noble
I collect the Barnes and Noble collectible editions. I find them to be of a high quality, at a reasonably affordable price. I have been very impressed by them, and will continue to collect them.
 This next book was also purchased two weeks ago. I bought it from Half Price Books. "Catch-22" by Joseph Heller. While not necessary one of my finer finds, it is a book that I have been interested in reading for some time now.
 These two books were purchased earlier this week from Half Price Books. The larger red one on the left is "Barchester Towers" by Anthony Trollope, A Franklin Library edition. I found this book in the clearance for $3.00 so I figured that at that price I could take a gamble on it. The smaller, darker one on the right is "The Red House Mystery" by A.A. Milne, also a Franklin Library edition. I enjoy Milne as a author so I was excited to find this book. Prior to now, I did not realize that Milne wrote a mystery.
Now this was the real gem. I purchased this set earlier this week, also through Half Price Books. A Winnie-The-Pooh collectible set of four. "Winnie-The-Pooh", "The House at Pooh Corner", "When We Were Very Young", and "Now We are Six" by A.A. Milne, Easton Press collectible editions. Price will not be disclosed, but I will say that I feel that I got them at a very reasonable price after seeing what they are selling for online.


  1. I swear that I drove away, with no intention of buying, but considering that I could not stop thinking about it since seeing it there the week prior, I turned around and went back. It will be replacing my current, so-so, edition. This set is in mint condition, and one that I will be proud to own.
