Bargain Books

After encouraging Jeremy Hedley to check out the great book deals at Daedalus Books Online, I realized that I hadn’t browsed the bargains for awhile. I did and came away with six new books for under $30.00. The shipment arrived just before the ice storm, so I’ve been snuggling under a quilt on the couch in front of the fireplace with this stack of books.

  • My Asakasa: Coming of Age in Pre-War Tokyo. Sadako Sawamura.
  • Tamsin. Peter S. Beagle.
  • stone field, true arrow. Kyoko Mori.
  • The Life of an Amorous Man. Saikaku Ihara.
  • Harukor: An Ainu Woman’s Tale. Honda Katsuichi.
  • A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains. Isabella Bird.

All except Tamsin are somehow related to Japan. Isabella Bird also wrote Unbeaten Tracks in Japan about her trip solo through Japan in 1878. I bought Tamsin because Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn has been one of my favorite books since I first read it in high school.
