Friday Finds #12

Friday Finds is a book meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Friday Finds is a chance to share and show off the books you discovered during the week and would like to add to your reading list...


Or a place to simply feature the books you've actually purchased throughout the week and have added to your to be read pile!

This week I added one new title to my personal book collection! I found a used, hardback copy of John Fowles's 'The Collector' from our Friends of the Library Used Bookstore in almost pristine condition for only two dollars! 

The near pristine condition of 'The Collector' by John Fowles and the exquisite cover art on the dust jacket is what initially drew me to this particular hardback novel. 

I also have to love the photograph of the author on the back cover of the dust jacket sitting next to a typewriter... We don't see typewriters very often these days, now that computers are dominating the world. The inside cover states that this particular book sold for $6.95 when it was first published!! The copy I have is an 8th printing of 'The Collector' by John Fowles.

So, which books have you discovered this week?


  1. I didn't discover books.. but I did discover an amazing independent book store... Murder by the Books in Houston! Love it!

    1. Oooo, I love discovering new independent bookstores! It sounds like you found a good one!
