It is 2:43 PM Thursday afternoon. This afternoon I visit a local thrift store and found these used books to add to our library or donate to the library book nook.

"Back When We Were Grownups" a novel by Anne Tyler

"Ladder Of Years" a novel by Anne Tyler

"Ceremony" a novel by Leslie Marmon Silko

"Granta: The Magazine Of New Writings" issue #85

"Evensong" a novel by Gail Godwin

"An Unexpected Light: Travels in Afghanistan" by Jason Elliot

"Strength In What Remains" biography by Tracy Kidder

"Night Train To Turkistan: Modern Adventures Along China's Ancient Silk Road" by Stuart Stevens

"Reminiscences" autobiography by General Douglas MacArthur (I recently bought a used biography on General Douglas MacArthur titled, "American Caesar Douglas MacArthur 1880-1964" by William Manchester.)

When I got home from the thrift store I found Carol home. She plans to leave soon to go get Bethany in Grand Rapids.

Well I will close to face the firing squad.

I have been mainly reading today a biography on Flaubert by Bart. I have in our library two other biographies on Gustave Flaubert.

"Flaubert: A Life" by Geoffrey Wall

"Flaubert" biography by Henri Troyat [Translated By Joan Pinkham]

Also sometime for sheer fun check out this book on Flaubert, "Sartre & Flaubert" by Hazel E. Barnes. Sartre wrote a five volume work on Flaubert.
