I'll be putting a post up soon of all the craziness that's been going on with my recent book purchases but these are the most recent ones.


The first came from a local used/antique bookstore that I love to browse. It's been on my list to read for awhile.


The second came from book for sale at my local library. It was ridiculously inexpensive, and I'd been considering it for a bit.


The last book serves as a holder for a series of books on the American Civil War. I've been told these are the definitive books and that all subsequent books draw from this source. While I'm missing at least 2 volumes, I got 6 very hard to find books from a local Antique Mall I didn't even know existed!
