Piers Anthony Book Finds!

Don't you love it when you find a pile of books in a place you just didn't expect to find books?  Yep me too!  Well, I was out doing my fortnightly shopping when I thought to check out my local Life Line charity store and found out the front a collection of Piers Anthony books sitting in a basket for $3.00 each!  They were in good condition and I have been wanting to read some of his work but didn't want to spend a fortune on ordering in new books from QBD.

So, I looked through the collection of books there and found some old, but great, titles.  It wasn't until I got them home that I found out they were all First Editions; two of the titles being printed in the USA.  What great finds!  I can't wait to get in and read them!  They look wonderful, have lovely dust jackets and are all hard cover editions!  I love them.

Have you ever found books this way?  It's a great feeling to have them so close and yet are at a wonderful price, isn't it?  Which books were the ones you found for your collection?  Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. Exciting news for you!! Sounds like you found some great finds.

    Earlier this year, the annual Santa Barbara Women's Literary Festival took place. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, but was sooo looking forward to hearing/seeing some of the guest speakers.

    In fact, one of the guest speakers was a new to me author named Attica Locke, whose books sounded intriguing.

    Low and behold, I found two hardback copies of Attica Locke's novels at our local Friends of the Library Used Bookstore for $2 a piece and in good condition this week. So, I purcahsed both books and look forward to reading them soon!

    1. Don't you love it when one door closes and another opens for you? :D

      Way to go on those great finds! :D
