I just got back visiting a used books store in Douglas Michigan. This used books store is next door to the Douglas Public Library. I bought these used books this morning to add to our poor man's library-
"The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance" a memoir by Edmund De Waal
"Ancient Light" a novel by John Banville
"Life & Times of Michael K" a novel by J. M. Coetzee
"Conversations with William Styron" Edited by James L. W. West III
"A Turn In The South" a travel memoir by V. S. Naipaul
"Mantissa" by John Fowles
"The Good Husband" a novel by Gail Godwin
"Dancing After Hours" Stories by Andre Dubus
"Lewis Carroll: A Biography" by Morton N. Cohen
After visiting Well Read Used Books Store I drove down to a park by the Kalamazoo River to walk Rudy. It is a hot muggy day here in West Michigan. I could see sunlight reflecting off the river as Rudy walked around smelling everything.
After Douglas I drove back to Holland. Before coming home I walked Rudy again at Kollen Park. Now I am home listening to Boris, eating a giant sweet roll with coffee wondering what went wrong.
Carol called from Boston this morning around 8:30 AM. Emily still has not given birth. All we can do is wait.
Last night I watched some professional football and went to bed early. I read from these books last night.
"The Novels Of Flaubert: A Study Of Themes And Techniques" by Victor Brombert
"Flaubert: A Biography" by Frederick Brown
Well I will close to catalog my new used books into my LibraryThing site. Existence keeps screaming.
