Five of the books on my randomized list I am able to get at my library, the other five are a bit harder to find and I've ordered them used and should arrive in a couple of weeks. For five used books I was able to purchase them for around $20 which isn't bad at all.
I love reading "new to me authors" and have been meaning to branch out and this group seems to be perfect for just that! Excellent Women by Barbara Pym should arrive at my library tomorrow and I'm looking forward to reading that one. I've heard great things about Barbara.
