A Trip to Half-Price Books

Took some books to half-price books today and here is what I got in return:

The Cossacks (Everyman’s Library) by Leo Tolstoy :

I have a weakness for the Everyman’s Library. Plus, I figure this way I can read some Tolstoy without tackling War and Peace.

Love and Friendship by Allan Bloom

Bloom is a tough read and I have heard that some of the chapters are uneven, but it was only a dollar and I wanted to have it on the shelf.

The Brass Cupcake by John D. MacDonald.

What a great title! And who wouldn’t want to read a hard boiled detective story from the 1950’s.

About the author

Kevin Holtsberry

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season - oh, and watching golf too).
