If you ever travel the 95 corridor through Connecticut towards New England, and you have never heard of the Niantic Book Barn, you are in for a treat. It is a sprawling complex of used books and gardens off exit 72 in Connecticut, and they have a whole large room of Young Adult books that is utterly worth visiting (and the prices are great-- 4 -5 dollars for a like new hardcover) To me it is extra special, because it is here that I met Megan Whalen Turner for the first time back in the summer of 2008.
So anyway, it was on my way home....
And I got (all hardcover like new)
Wren's War, by Sherwood Smith
The Doomsday Book, by Mark Teague
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland, by Catherynne Valente
The Dark Mirror, by Juliet Marillier
Green Boy, by Susan Cooper
And my sister, who was driving me up from New York, had enough book credit there from trading stuff in to cover the cost. Thank you, dear sister.
