A Freudian used book porn post

May 23, 2012 § 1 Comment

After my job interview this past Tuesday, I stopped by my favorite used bookstore, McKay’s, and bought nearly $30 in books (or just over $13 after I traded in three books for store credit).  As is usual for these posts, I start with the Spanish, French, and German-language books.  Thought it’d be amusing to read some more Freud in Spanish, so I got the Spanish edition of Dreams for reading sometime in the near future.  Already owned a copy of El señor presidente by Miguel Ángel Asturias, but this was from a collection of Nobel literature winners and was hardcover, so I spent $4 of credit on it.  Should make for an interesting mix of reading over the next several months/years.

Loved reading Jamaica Kincaid’s My Brother, so when I saw a copy of her A Small Place, it was a must-buy.  $1.50 made it an even easier decision.  Didn’t own this particular Kundera book, so it too was snatched up for $1.50.

Finding used Library of America editions in good/great shape is difficult, so while I was originally planning on not spending any actual cash during this visit, I couldn’t pass up buying it for $17.50.  Now I have nearly half of the 220+ volumes in the Library of America series.  Sweet.  Plus the Poe helps counteract the Freud…although what this might say about my presumed mental state is best left unsaid here, n’est ce pas?

Any titles of interest to you?
