Here we have a lovely selection of literature, all $0.50 each from garage sales!
Jusqu'à Nos Jours is a Canadian French textbook of selected French authors' short stories. Yay for keeping up the French usage, plus the cover is a surface pattern design dream!
The Mayor of Casterbridge, a classic by Thomas Hardy, has been on my reading list since I read Far from the Madding Crowd. Also, the cover art is stunning!
L.M. Montgomery is the Queen of Heartwarming Descriptions and my favourite author. The Road to Yesterday is a compilation of some of her short stories, and this page at the front offers some highly suggested reading!
