A Day In My Life, Adventures of a Bookworm

Adventures of a Bookworm: Second Saturdays are the Best Saturdays!

Second Saturdays are the best Saturdays. They are better than First Fridays and are the only Saturdays I will get out of bed before noon. The second Saturday of each month, the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library group opens the doors to their book haven and sells all of the used/new angels for just one dollar. I came out of the sale today, after an hour, with thirteen gems for just thirteen dollars. The books I found are:


  1. The Odyssey by Homer
  2. Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
  3. Friday the Rabbi Slept Late by Harry Kemelman
  4. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams
  5. Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  6. 20,000 Words (Just a book with 20,000 words) by
  7. The Hunger Pains by The Harvard Lampoon
  8. Confessions of Zeno by Italo Svevo
  9. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
  10. The Tin Drum by Gunter Grass
  11. Main Street by Sinclair Lewis
  12. My Dog Tulip by J.R. Ackerly
  13. Walden by Henry David Thoreau


By the way, leaving the book sale I saw a boy with this bag and now I am going to google it to find one for when I go to the sale.

  1. I am so fan girling now! Which translation for the odyssey? There’s two popular ones… one more ‘poetic’ (both good! Different reasons).

    And I have not gotten around to reading that Sinclair novel… Main Street (so jealous!). I will be looking forward to a review! (Living vicariously, still living, right? lol)

    1. Yes! There’s so many tables of books that I will dig through every single book because the best ones are always in between two big random hardcover books. Haha.

      And it seems like the more poetic one like I read in high school. And yes! Definitely excited for Main Street and a few others. I will let you know how it goes!
