Library love.

Library book sale + Library visit = Very happy Kristin.

I went to my very first {that I can remember, anyway} library book sale today. I was very impressed and slightly overwhelmed, but I looked through everything there and came home with these:

-Frank Capra's 1971 autobiography The Name Above the Title. I love some Frank Capra. :) I didn't even know he had written an autobiography!
-A pictorial biography of Benny Goodman called Benny: King of Swing. He's not my favorite big band leader, but I do like him.
-A hardcover copy of Catherine Marshall's Christy. I read it several years ago and enjoyed it. I already own my grandma's old paperback copy, but the cover fell off, so it's a bit fragile for reading.
-Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, by Robert C. O'Brien. I used to love the movie, but I've never read the book. I came really close to getting it in Target the other day, but I'm glad I didn't. :)
-Whistle for Willie, by Ezra Jack Keats. I love his picture books. This is another one about Peter, the little boy from the classic The Snowy Day.
-An old sewing book called Sewing Made Easy, by Mary Lynch. This is such a neat little book, with tons of information about sewing! According to this, it's from the 50s or 60s. There are beautiful illustrations like these:

I got all six books for $3.75. :) Can't wait for the next sale!

And since we were so close, we stopped by the library, too {the sale wasn't at the library, but it was nearby}. As if I needed more books to read.

I think I have a book problem. But I'm okay with that.

{Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination, by Neal Gabler, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick- I finally got my hands on a copy of this!, The Penderwicks, by Jeanne Birdsall, Entwined, by Heather Dixon, and Awaken, by Katie Kacvinsky. Plus Psycho (I feel like a terrible classic movie fan for having not seen this yet. I think the R rating scared me away) and the first season of Lark Rise to Candleford, which came highly recommended by a fellow BBC fan.}

I also finally got into the beta version of Pottermore today, but I haven't had the chance to look around much yet!

I meant to write about my surprise days ago...the picture heavy post is still a draft, though. I'll try to have it up tomorrow! :) For now, I'm off to finish Mockingjay and watch some of Lark Rise to Candleford. I've got to get started on those library books!
