My mother called earlier this morning to tell me that a garage sale on the next street over had a bunch of Phillipa Gregory books for sale. Garage sales around here usually don’t have books for sale, especially not popular ones like Gregory’s books. So I scurried on down there and picked up four of the seven Gregory book’s available (I already own The Virgin’s Lover and The Other Boleyn Girl; the other one didn’t interest me) for $2.
I snapped up The Queen’s Fool and the Wideacre series — Wideacre, The Favored Child, and Meridon. I’ve heard mixed reviews about Wideacre, but I’m excited to try something of her other than her King Henry VIII books.Photo © Me. Garage sale loot. Taken: April 25, 2009.
