I did make a decision after doing yard work to visit just one near by thrift store to look at their used books. I found these used books today for our library-
'Goodbye to All That' autobiography by Robert Graves
'Einstein: The Life and Times' biography by Ronald W. Clark
'I Lock My Door Upon Myself' a novella by Joyce Carol Oates
'The Assignation: Stories' by Joyce Carol Oates
'Dorothy And Red' a biography by Vincent Sheean (Dorothy Thompson & Sinclair Lewis (Red) married)
'Old Glory: An American Voyage' travel memoir by Jonathan Raban
'The Kennedy's: An American Drama' biography by Peter Collier & David Horotwitz
'Newton and the Counterfeiter: The Unknown Detective Career of the World's Greatest Scientist' by Thomas Levenson
'Eliot Porter American Places' photographs Text by Wallace Stegner & Page Stegner
'The Art Of The Popes From The Vatican Collection' Edited by Maurizio Fagiolo dell'Arco
'The Americans: Fifty Talks on our life and times' by Alistair Cooke
I got all these used books for $5.00 because for every two books I bought I got one free/paperbacks twenty five cents and hardbacks were fifty cents. Made out like a crazy old book freak today. This coming Friday I will go to a local Bazaar where among a ton of other stuff there will be tables of used books for sale. After visiting this Bazaar I have to volunteer at the local library used bookstore from 10 AM till 1 PM. Carol is off this coming Thursday and Friday. There is always hope for something to happen.
Before doing yard work this afternoon I read some of the book, 'The Lonely City: Adventures In The Art Of Being Alone' by Olivia Laing.
