A Trip to the Used Book Store

The whole Library Family went to the used book store over the weekend and made a small purchase (using the Library Dad Reading Fund). Library Daughter bought a copy of Little Red Riding Hood (ISBN 0-75259-266-1*). It came in a clear plastic pouch and came with an audio cassette.

Library Dad added to his To Be Read Pile with a copy of The Bastard King (ISBN 0-451-45967-9) by Dan Chernenko. It turns out "Dan Chernenko" is actually Harry Turtledove. According to his website:

He used the pseudonym Dan Chernenko for the three book "The Scepter of Mercy" trilogy, published by Ace from 2003-2005 because he felt the books were
different from what he generally wrote and wanted to see the reaction they
would get without his name.
*According to my research, that ISBN is linked to a Twelve Days of Christmas book. According to the receipt, it's a book called The Elves and the Shoemaker. Guess we'll have to read it to find out.
