Grand Haven Book Haul

It is in the flow of existence 5:08 PM Wednesday evening. This morning I made a sudden decision to go to Grand Haven to look at used books. On the way I stopped at Brother Tim's place to see if he wanted to go with me. Tim had just gotten home from the Holland Farmer's Market when I stop by his place. Tim said Sure he would go with me to Grand Haven to visit used books stores. So we drove to Grand Haven, but before getting there we stopped at Echo's Thrift Store so I could look at their used books. I found these three used books-

After checking out Echo's Thrift Store we headed north to Grand Haven. When we got into the city of Grand Haven we went first to Grand Haven City Library to visit their own used bookstore Cheapstacks. This used books store sales used books cheap twenty-five cents for paperbacks and fifty cents for hardbacks. Carol and I try to visit this library used books store at least once a year.

After checking out the Grand Haven City Library used books store we went to a used bookstore there in Grand Haven to look at their used books/Booked for the Season. I bought there these three used books-

"The Four-Gated City (Children Of Violence)" a novel by Doris Lessing

"Memoirs of an Anti-Semite" Stories by Gregor Von Rezzori

"While England Sleeps" a novel by David Leavitt

While in Grand Haven we stopped for lunch and then headed back to Holland. On the way home we spotted a Goodwill thrift store so we stopped to look at their used books. I found these two used books there-

"The Book of Laughter and Forgetting" a novel by Milan Kundera

"Good Evening Mr. & Mrs. America, And All The Ships At Sea" a novel by Richard Bausch

I paid for All the above used books around $18.00 dollars.

On the way back to Holland we stopped at a park called Riverside Park along the Grand River and we also stopped at where one of his two brother's live just to say, "Hello!"

So has gone by this day. Existence keeps speeding by full force. I will close to look at my books and prepare for the coming darkness.
