Sunday Post: Embraced the Pulps! 

Here some panda pictures from the zoo in DC. Hope that make everyone feel better.

The used book sales in DC were a total bust. The first one had too many people and not enough books. Second one had only two boxes of fantasy and sci-fic.

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

Well at least I got all these books in the mail a few weeks ago. This is my attempt to read more of the pulps. The ones I read in the past turn out to be some of my favorite books. Embraced the pulps!

  1. I went to a Seattle library sale and had a similar experience. A small room with a couple bookshelves of fiction…..Disappointing. Looks like you have some fun books! Have a terrific week.

  2. Funny about library sales Ive read that there is a glut of used books because everyone is either reading eBooks OR playing games and never reading any more. I wonder why.

  3. I read a lot of collections of pulp short stories from the 1930s and 1940s when I was young. They were full of action and dramatic dialogue.

    I keep missing all the wonderful library sales that take place around here. They all seem to be in the spring when we are traveling.

  4. I haven’t read a lot of pulp. One or two of the Stephen King’s that have pulp covers are about as far as I can guess now. But Greg is your expert here!

    Library sales? Not something that ever happens here in SA, or at least not in our little corner of the world.

    Have a great week ahead and enjoy your books!

  5. That is too bad about the sales not working out.

    I hope you enjoy the Solomon Kane book. I really enjoyed it when I read it and it helped me understand the movie (which pretty much took the name and sword and puritan hat from the book and that was it).

  6. Too bad about the used book sale. My library has a whole store for used books, which they operate year-round to raise funds for the library. I think a lot of libraries do the same. There might be one near you.

    1. One of my libraries has a whole book store for used books. I like going out of town for used book sales because the local sales start to feel stale and going to them so often there not a lot of circulation of newer books.

  8. Love the panda! I love my area’s library sales. Sometimes I find a lot I want and others just a few or none. It’s not fun when you find none.
