2008 Easter Book Fair - Day Three

I only had 15 minutes to spare this morning, and came away with five paperbacks and some assorted magazines. The grand spending total today was just $4.00, and that included a book for a friend and the armful of magazines.

Appleby's Answer by Michael Innes
A Private View by Michael Innes
A Spy in the House of Love by Anaïs Nin
Bullitt by Robert L. Pike
Simply Super 8: A Basic Guide to Moviemaking by Roger M. Sherman & Barry Schonhaut
The Penguin Poets: Edith Sitwell (A Selection by the Author)

The Edith Sitwell poetry collection is a very well read 1952 copy, with illegible pencilled-in notes throughout. I have always liked Sitwell's poem Song (Now that Fate is dead and gone... And that Madness reigns alone) - it is deliciously disturbing.

The Bullitt by Robert L. Pike paperback (Penguin, 1969) has a great cover image showing Steve McQueen, taken from a scene in the film of the same name.
