James V. Brown Library Spring Book Sale Haul

Last evening I went to the Spring Book Sale held by the Friends of the James V. Brown Library. I found the following books:

  • Nocturne by Adam Rapp – a play by a playwright I am familiar with
  • Moon-Child by Derek Walcott – a play by a playwright I am familiar with
  • Theories of the Theatre by Marvin Carlson – seems to be more of a historical review of the theater than a book about theater theory
  • Watchers by Dean Koontz – you see lots of books by this author but this one in particular comes highly recommended and I can never seem to find it. This book was on my shopping list so I was pleased to find it at the book sale.
  • Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon by Pablo Neruda – I have not read much poetry by this poet
  • The Origin of Humankind by Richard Leakley – I have been reading more science books with a particular emphasis on artificial intelligence, evolutionary psychology, or evolution.
  • The Stuff of Thought by Steven Pinker – one of my favorite science authors. This book is about what language reveals about how the mind works. A good book for an aspiring writer.
  • Science Fiction Handbook, Revised by L. Sprangue de Camp – an old book on writing science fiction

That is only eight books. I only bought books I thought I might want to read. Since I already have stacks and stacks of books to read, I really didn’t want to commit to reading even more books. My house is already so full of books that it looks like a library. They are piled up everywhere since my bookcases are full.
