Stacking the Shelves #19

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews that features the books we bought, borrowed, were gifted, and were given for review. 

I had an eventful weekend last week (I'm a little behind on getting this up). We went to the Manatee  Festival a few towns away and looked at the local arts and crafts vendors. We never leave an event like that without some fresh kettle corn. On the way home, we stopped at the only bookstore within an hour's drive for the first time. It was all second hand books for very expensive prices. I searched the entire store but only found a worn copy of 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' by Hunter S. Thompson for $5.

After I bought it, the owner told me he had a signed first edition of the same book.

We also stopped at two thrift stores on the way home because we only go driving out that way a few times a year. I spent $4.24 in all at both thrift stores. Here's what I got!
