Books, books, books

May 9, 2014 - Evan Reid
It seems hard to believe that I didn't know about Greenway Books in Iron Mountain before last week.

The store recently opened after being closed for several months, and is hosting a great 50% off used books sale — as of May 8, at least.

I bought "The Gunslinger" and "Pet Sematary" by Stephen King, "Foucault's Pendulum" by Umberto Eco, a large collection titled "Masterpieces of Terror and the Supernatural," and another collection of "The Greatest Mysteries of the 20th Century" all for about $15, if not less.

Sale or not, I will definitely return. The store isn't huge, but the selection of books is excellent and ranges from non-fiction and reference books to science-fiction and fantasy.

"The Gunslinger" is the first Stephen King book I have ever read. It was pretty good, but not great... I chose this one because it's the first in "The Dark Tower" series, which King considers his magnum opus, but now I've decided to check out some of his more popular material. I'm going to give "Pet Sematary" a shot next, but "It" is the King novel that I really want to read.

I've been wanting to read "Foucault's Pendulum" for years now and it's great to finally have a copy. Eco's "The Name of the Rose" is also on my must-read-soon list.

The next time you're desperately channel surfing or wandering the internet, remember that books don't get interrupted by advertisements.
