Two dollars of books

The other day at the library I purchased:

Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal (pb) by Eric Schlosser for 1/2 dollars.

The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana (pb) by Umberto Eco for 1/2 dollars.

Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America (hc) by Barbara Ehrenreich for 1 dollar.

I've already read (and reviewed) the excellent muckraking work of Schlosser, but didn't have a copy. The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana I was pleased to discover, as it has a really neat premise and is full of great illustrations that are like candy to a fan of pop culture/history like myself.
