Stacking the Shelves: the Harvard Book Store Summer Warehouse Sale 2016

This weekend, the Harvard Book Store had their annual summer warehouse sale. I went last year and loved it, so I knew I had to go again, even though I have absolutely no business buying any more books. But I'm only human. So yeah, I bought 11 books for a steal to the tune of $30. Most are remaindered, some are used, and all are beautiful.

Left: Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, Mary Poppins by P. L. Travers, Hild by Nicola Griffith, Dracula by Bram Stoker

Right: Frederica in Fashion by M.C. Beaton, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken, Love and Friendship by Jane Austen, The Witchcraft of Salem Village by Shirley Jackson, The Midwife's Apprentice by Karen Cushman, The Lancaster Witch by Carol H. Behrman, A Gathering of Days: A New England Girl's Journal, 1830-1832 by Joan W. Blos

I'm really jazzed about all of my finds, especially the used ones from the '90s. They are all books I would have ordered in my heyday from a Scholastic or Troll Books catalog!

Get any good books lately?


  1. Ohhhh 11 for $30 is a great steal. And I'm interested in that 'Hild' book, I love the way the spine looks. I hope these make for some great reads!

    1. Thanks, Liselle! I'm really excited about my haul. And Hild sounds really interesting.
