Library Book Sale Madness

Yesterday was the social event of the weekend: the Public Library Booksale.
As a staff member, I got first pick, although as Kate Nova's and Bob Izumi Jr's lists show, I missed out on a lot of good ones. I did try to hold back; after all, there are tons of good books to borrow from the library, rather than being saddled with a heavy pile of books. I think the sale was especially good since people move in and out of this town so often.
My list:
National Audubon Society Field Guide to Mammals of North America (Almost brand new!)
Common Plants of Nunavut
Better Homes and Gardens Meatless Main Dishes
Low-Fat Vegetarian Cookbook
Quotations from Chairman Mao
Neither Here Nor There: Travels in Europe, by Bill Bryson
The Cider House Rules, by John Irving
Catch 22, by Joseph Heller
The Indian Lawyer, by James Welch
Oars, Sails and Steam: A Picture Book of Ships, by Edwin Tunis
Star Gazing, Comet Tracking and Sky Mapping, by Melvin Berger
Icebergs, by Roma Gans, Illustrated by Bobri (a kids' book published in 1964, purchased for its awesome 60's-style illustrations)
