Listarama: 2008 Lifeline Book Fair Purchases

I wanted to post the full list of books I purchased at the Lifeline book fair recently (which I will do in a few days to a week) and I decided to post the ones I purchased from my 2008 trip.

Following aren’t all the books I had purchased. In total I’d purchased 98 books at a price of $237. I gave 30 of those ones away as gifts and since then have gotten rid of a few more (I’ll type that in next to those books).
