Passing through Barnes & Noble (the grown-up equivalent of the toy store) a couple of weeks ago yielded four purchases from the $1 table. What a steal! Came away with some good stuff:

  • Eating My Words by Mimi Sheraton. Sheraton was a food critic for the New York Times and writes about food, travel, and writing. Three things I love–how could it not be good?
  • God’s Politics by Jim Wallis. How this got on the $1 table is beyond me. Great book I’ve been meaning to buy for years.
  • Talking Back … to Presidents, Dictators, and Assorted Scoundrels by journalist Andrea Mitchell. Who knew she was married to Alan Greenspan? Shocking.
  • An illustrated coffee-table version of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Lovely addition to my Christmas decor.
