Library Book Sale Finds

Here we see just two of the finds I made today at the local Public Library Used Book Sale. We may be perpetually broke and selling off old books but with a name like "Booksteve," sometimes you just have to splurge. Got $188 worth of new to me books (at original list prices) from 1966-2002 for exactly $5.25.

Asterix and the Vikings

Today is the birthday of the late Rene Goscinny, creator of ASTERIX, generally considered the most successful comic strip of all time according to Guinness. I love the live action movies of recent years and the older animated films. Here, though, in its entirety and dubbed into English, is the 2006 ASTERIX AND THE VIKINGS. The US cast includes Brad Garrett, Paul Giamatti, Evan Rachel Wood and Phil Proctor, plus many of the great modern voice actors!
