I failed to mention earlier what I found at thrift stores today in the way of used books. I only found two used books today to ADD to our library. I found these two used books this morning.

"Spook Country" a novel by William Gibson (I collect the writings of William Gibson.)

"Stranger in a Strange Land" a novel by Robert A. Heinlein (first edition hardback with cover published in 1961)

"Stranger in a Strange Land"

I was very surprised to learn this evening that my wife never read the novel "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Heinlein. This novel was a very famous in the 1960's. I remember reading this novel in High School (1968-1970).

Next month we will be attending a big used books sale in South Haven Michigan. I wonder what used books will we find at this used books sale this year. Last year at this annual used books sale in South Haven I bought a box full of used novels by Anthony Trollope. I love the novels of Anthony Trollope.

Carol got up to go to work for four hours around 3 o'clock PM. She should be home this evening from work around 8:30 PM.

All I have attempted to read today is the book titled, "Time Of Need: Forms Of Imagination In The Twentieth Century" by William Barrett.

I will close to drift into the evening hours. Tomorrow is a Friday.
