Fourth of July Used Books Sale

It is in the death flow 11:49 AM late Saturday morning. It will be soon Noon Time. I am too out of it to go into details about my existence right now. I just want to list the used books I bought today at a Fourth of July used books sale in Grand Rapids. Maybe later I will get a second wind and be able to tell you all about IT.

Here is the list or a list of used books I bought this morning for a library. What is in your library?

"The Journals of Mary Butts" Edited by Nathalie Blondel
"British modernist writer Mary Butts (1890-1937), now recognized as one of the most important and original authors of the interwar years, lived an unconventional life. She encountered many of the most famous figures in early 20th-century literature, music and art - among them T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce and Gertrude Stein - and came to know some of them intimately. These luminaries figure prominently in journals in which Butts chronicled the development of her craft between 1916 and her untimely death in 1937. This volume contains her journals. Introduced and annotated by Nathalie Blondel, an authority on Butts's life and works, the book reveals the workings of a complex and distinctive mind while offering insights into her fascinating era."
