January Library Book Sale Haul | 2020 📚

I seriously considered not going to as many library book sales this year, and I may still decide that. But for now, I’ll take the opportunity to make my shelves match my actual reading priorities, and I think this haul shows the potential 🤞🏻

Some really exciting finds in this stack:

  • The Dispossessed: Part of Ursula Le Guin’s Hainish Cycle sci-fi series that I’m planning on starting this year
  • Lost In The City by Edward P Jones: short stories set in DC (local fiction rep)
  • The Other Wes Moore by, you guessed it, Wes Moore: nonfiction/memoir
  • Not All Dead White Men by Donna Zuckerberg: a look at alt-right communities using classics to espouse their racism and misogyny
  • My Planet: a collection of columns from Mary Roach, science writer extraordinaire
  • Umami by Laia Jufresa (translated from Spanish by Sophie Hughes): a dark-comic contemporary set in Mexico City
  • The Grief Keeper by Alexandra Villasante: a speculative take on a Salvadoran family’s asylum journey
  • Let Me Hear a Rhyme by Tiffany D Jackson: a YA contemporary

See any you’ve read or want to read? Let me know which to prioritize!
