I’m obsessed with used bookstores-- partly because I’m too cheap to pay full price for a brand-new book, but also because I love not quite knowing what I’ll find. From memorable inscriptions, notes in the margins, pictures and other objects as forgotten placeholders, unique titles, to gorgeous cover art, I’d love to see others’ favorite unexpected bookstore finds.
Over the weekend, I wandered into a Russian Language Used Bookstore. I regrettably don’t speak Russian, but was curious anyway. Lucky for me, I found this book of Medieval Russian Folktales in English! (For only $1.50, might I add.) I’m in love with the cover art. I was so thrilled by this find!
