Thrift Store Wednesdays: Eclectic is always good

All the books at our thrift store are still a dollar this week, but most of the ones I brought home today would have been priced at a dollar anyway.
Language Maven Strikes Again, by William Safire
The Return of Martin Guerre, by Natalie Zemon Davis
Mrs. Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf
Aku-Aku, by Thor Heyerdahl
For the Time Being, by Annie Dillard
Little Clothes for Little People, by Lia van Steenderen (a sewing book)

I really want to read Mrs Dalloway. Have you?

No, the only Woolf I remember reading is To the Lighthouse. I was feeling somewhat guilty and neglectful over that, especially after reading Howard's End is On the Landing (Susan Hill loves Virginia Woolf), so I brought Mrs. Dalloway home as an experiment.

That said, I'm a bit cautious about writers from this group (Woolf and her cohort)--they do not tend to be my favourites, for various reasons.

Susan Hill is responsible for my wanting to read it was well. All I've ever read was A Room of One's Own.
