It is ever growing and never shrinking. I have dozens more to read, but yesterday I added six more. “I need something to blog about.” was my only excuse for “splurging”. (Big splurge indeed, only spent $22.00)

What is my secret for finding these fabulous deals? Gullion’s Christian Supply Center  worked their magic once again! They specialize in selling thousands of used fictional works for CHEAP! (among a whole bunch of other amazing Christian products) They are my bookish besties!

Left To Right: His Brother’s Keeper by Charles M. Sheldon, Abba, Father by Virginia Matson, Bright Captivity by Eugenia Price Top To Bottom: The Dead Secret by Wilkie Collins, Thorn in My Heart by Liz Curtis Higgs, Across the China Sky by C. Hope Flinchbaugh

My Findings:

His Brother’s Keeper by Charles M. Sheldon: Though written by the same author as In His Steps, this novel did not become as popular. Obviously not because I never heard of it! But, of what I’ve learned, it’s been (socially?) lost and was lately rediscovered.

Abba, Father by Virginia Matson: You never know what you’re going to find in the $1.00 bin! Yesterday, I found this retro love story that takes place in Israel! Retro and vintage call to me.  I may be wrong, but the oldies are just sometimes better.

Bright Captivity by Eugenia Price: This poor naked book stretched its pages towards me and begged to be taken care of. I felt so sorry for it. Yes, dearest, I will take you into my home where I will love and care for you. I have never heard of this author or her stories, but the Amazon reviews seemed good. I picked up a different book of hers but realized it was the third in a series. The time I had tracing down her titles that weren’t a sequel to something! I was pleased to finally discover book one…of what I didn’t know but later discovered it was the Georgia Trilogy.

The Dead Secret by Wilkie Collins: Do you know of this author? Because I don’t. Yet how could I say no to a gothic period novel?

Thorn in My Heart by Liz Curtis Higgs: A retelling of Bible stories but in a Scottish setting. What a combination, but oh yes please! A simple fact: I ADORE Scotland and Ireland. Novels on these countries immediately grasp my attention and often won’t let go. I saw the last book in the series at the library, but did they have book one? NOOOO… What’s a girl to do? Agonizingly, I had to hunt it down and buy it for myself! I won’t have to return it! The horror!

Across the China Sky by C. Hope Flinchbaugh: I bought the sequal (which consequently is about a family escaping North Korea) but never bought its prequel. After giving myself a thorough bashing, I went back and found book one!

The question is, which one should I read first?
