Binchy Haul

Posted Sun, 04/12/09

I made a great haul from the paperback exchange near my house yesterday. I went there just to look around, but instead found a section loaded up with a slew of Maeve Binchy titles. The books are in excellent condition, some almost like new, and I was able to snap them up for roughly $2.50 apiece.

I'm ashamed to say I've never read any of Binchy's books to date, although I have of course heard about her over the years. I started reading Light a Penny Candle yesterday and almost at once asked myself "How could I have missed such a wonderful author?"

I love long reads with purposeful and related detail, not short choppy stories that seem to be created on an assembly line. Maeve Binchy is right up my alley and I'm looking forward to reading all of her books.

Aside from Light a Penny Candle, I also purchased Firefly Summer, Silver Wedding, Circle of Friends, The Glass Lake, Tara Road, Scarlet Feather and Quentins.
