Thrifted Book Two: Jim the Boy

I finished Shopgirl by Steve Martin the other day, and I absolutely loved it! Who would've guessed that Steve Martin of all people was a brilliant writer? I thought it rang true to how life really can be, which doesn't always come through in fiction. Definitely two thumbs up from me!

The next thrifted book on my list? Jim the Boy by Tony Earley. It's the story of a boy who is living in Great Depression North Carolina, and the history of it appeals to me.

I thrifted this at the local Goodwill in Richmond, so it was all of one dollar!

With glowing reviews, I have high hopes for this little paperback. I'll of course let you know what I think once I finish :) I'll hopefully have some fresh Florida finds for you tomorrow!

  1. That sounds like a cool book. Historical fiction is interesting- I'll have to check it out at my library!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
