Well, I guess technically it's a DONATION JACKPOT, because most of them are beat-up enough that they wouldn't have made it to the book sale, but either way, JACKPOT.

A few NOTES:

WHY DO I WANT TO GO BACKWARDS AND RE-READ INSTEAD OF READING ALL THE NEWER BOOKS I'M SUPPOSED TO BE READING???

(I know, I know: Because it's the end of the year, so comfort reading.)

But obviously, for ME, the big score is the Anastasia books.

As it's been a full ten years since I've read Anastasia Krupnik, I think it's time for a re-read of the WHOLE SERIES. I think maybe there are even a few later ones that I haven't read?

Looking into this sent me down a bit of a Cover Comparison Rabbithole.
