Book List!

Here is what I bought at the Brandeis Used Book Fair:

  1. Books One, Two and 3 of the Star Wars X-Wing Series (one of my guilty pleasure readings)
  2. Four books by Terry Brooks as I liked The Sword of Shannara Trilogy (that I read as 3 separate editions)
  3. Two books by Roger Zelazny because I am a huge fan of his Amber Chronicles
  4. Woody Allen's Getting Even
  5. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (never read it)
  6. Franz Kafka's The Trial
  7. Fydor Dostoyevsky's The Possessed
  8. Friedrich Nietzshe's Twilight of the Idols/The Anti-Christ
  9. Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar (move over, girl, and pass the stones; or was it in the oven?)
  10. Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-five or The Children's Crusade
  11. Norman Mailer's The Naked and The Dead
  12. Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower
  13. Adam Davies' The Frog King
  14. Laura Shaine Cunningham's Beautiful Blondes: A Novel (For the record, I prefer Brunettes, thank you)
  15. David Benioff's The 25th Hour: A Novel
  16. Lauren Weisberger's The Devil Wears Prada: A Novel
  17. Adam Langer's Crossing California
  18. Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus' The Nanny Diaries
  19. Alex Garland's The Tesseract
  20. Plum Sykes' Bergdorf Blondes (yes, I read Chick Lit. I've even read Sex & The City!)
  21. Nicole Mones' Lost in Translation
  22. and, finally, Grant Naylor's Red Dwarf

And three movies for cheap on VHS (hope the work):

  1. "About Last Night"
  2. New York Stories ("Life Lessons" is the best of the 3)
  3. and The Last Days of Disco (because I love Whit Stillman works)

Don't worry, there should still be some left for all yooz guyz.

When I was a kid, my Dad made it a tradition to take to to the Brandeis booksale whenever it came to town. I still have a few of my favorite weird old books, mostly old medical journals. Looks like you hit the motherlode.
