Quick Stop: Books!

So I've been having a little bit of a Goodwill dry spell. It's been a while since I've found anything exciting besides books. Don't get me wrong, I love books... I mean LOVE them... but even more I LOVE finding old 80's cast-offs, super-hero action figures, vintage Happy Meal toys, etc. 

Sigh. It's a good thing I do love books. There was also a DVD picked up in this quick-stop. 

I really think the Penguin editions of these Ian Fleming James Bond novels are incredibly cool. I mentioned the copy of Dr. No I picked up at Goodwill last September which is from the same Penguin series as this copy of Moonraker. I still haven't read any James Bond novels because I'd really like to try reading them in order... but look at that gorgeous pulp-tastic cover! This set me back .99 cents. 

For some reason I have a hard time NOT picking up YA books with "samurai" in the title. Samurai Girl is the first book in a series that I think I will give a try... .99 cents. 

The first book in the Elyon books, The Dark Hills Divide is a book I've been eyeing for weeks. It was 2.99 originally, which is exactly why I did not buy it. But during this quick stop at Goodwill I noticed it had a red tag, which was the half-off color that day. So I picked it up for about 1.50. I'll give it a shot. 

I don't know why this DVD was only 1.99 when all the other DVDs are usually sold for 2.99... but I didn't question it. I am an incredible fan of this movie (and most Jason Reitman films in general) so I snapped it up.

I've got a few more fun posts coming up for the end of the week... but this is it for tonight! I'll be back soon with some more Geeky Goodwill Goodies! Until then, Happy Hunting!

    1. The whole series of Puffin editions of these are cool and eerie to behold.

  2. Cool finds! I agree with JB, that cover to Moonraker is awesome. I love it. Really cool stuff.
