Book Haul: July 11

Being in NYC where there are so many independent bookstores is really awful for my wallet! I can’t set foot in an indie bookstore and not buy something — supporting local is really important to me. Before you think that I just spend like a fiend, one great thing about indies is their sales! Most of the books I bought were deeply discounted. Here’s what I’ve bought recently:

        1. Zelda: A Biography by Nancy Milford (bought at Strand Books)

          Shop Indie Bookstores
        2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

          Shop Indie Bookstores
        3. The Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie  (bought at Strand Books)

          Shop Indie Bookstores
        4. Advent by James Treadwell  (bought at Elm Street Books)

          Shop Indie Bookstores
