During a recent club meeting I noticed a pile of books on top of a table in front of the sociology department with a sign tapped to it saying “Free books!”. Being the book blogger I am, I couldn’t resist. Most of the books on the table were instructor’s editions of textbooks that are now out of date, but I did find three books on the Holocaust, three on sociology, and one about womanhood and poverty in the rural South.
- Hard Times Cotton Mill Girls: Personal Histories of Womanhood and Poverty in the South (Victoria Byerly)
- Who Rules America? (G. William Domhoff)
- Religion in Society: A Sociology of Religion (Ronald L. Johnstone)
- Unanswered Questions: Nazi Germany and the Genocide of the Jews (François Furet)
- My Germany: A Jewish Writer Returns to the World His Parents Escaped (Lev Raphael)
- How Dark the Heavens: 1400 Days in the Grip of Nazi Terror (Sidney Iwens)
- Witness to the Holocaust (Azriel Eisenberg)
- The Meaning of Sociology (Joel M. Charon)
I really only a few minutes to flip through the books as I grabbed them because the building was about to clothes, but those I decide not to read will probably make their way up on PaperBackSwap. One of my friends grabbed ten random books to post on PBS just so she could get her free credit for listing her first ten books.
