Default Not Pern, but a Darned Good Buy

Went to Goodwill yesterday to drop off my <final> load of stuff before I finally get down to L'ville for good.

Of course I had to go in. Of course I headed straight for the books. So I'm browsing, and darned if I don't come across the trade paperback of Eragorn. So I snatch it up.

So I'm looking and looking, find a few more books, and lo and behold! A hardcover version of Eldest, which I think is the second in the series?

Haven't read them yet, have been meaning to buy them, so SQUEEEEEEEEE.

At $1 for the trade PB and $1.50 for the hardcover, I think I may have done pretty well.

Shalyn, Great find for you, I keep meaning to read those books, but haven't gotten around to it as of yet. Enjoy them, and your new town.
